Blade aficionados will revel in color photos from inside Bob Loveless' knife shop, and of his knives, as author Durwood Hollis details Loveless' stock-removal method of knife making, tools of the trade, designs, heat treating and tempering of blade steel, handles, sheaths, knife care and maintenance, and tips for the field.

Bob Loveless, a member of the Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame??, passed away on Sept. 2, 2010, at the age of 81. He was known as the father of the modern custom knife movement, the man who popularized the dropped hunter, Big Bear sub-hilt fighter and other knives, and, along with Richard Barney, co-wrote How To Make Knives, the precursor to this book.

The Loveless story -- Words of wisdom from Bob Loveless -- Tools of the trade -- Blade work -- Handle work -- Sheath work -- Edge work -- Knife care and keeping -- Helping hands -- Resource guide -- Afterword.
