A $13,000 Loveless Fits the Bill

If you talk about Greatest Loveless Knife Designs, a Bob Loveless chute knife has to be included in the list. Originally designed for a Spec Ops parachutist working in jungle climates, the “chute” knife was fashioned to cut the lines of a parachute should the operative become entangled in them, a tree or other obstruction.

This piece, shared by Dave Ellis of www.exquisiteknives.com and www.robertloveless.com, is an amber-stag-handle model valued at approximately $13,000.

See more Loveless knives in the popular Knifemaking with Bob Loveless book.
