Description: Loveless style knives have a tremendous following. From the blade to the handle style, Bob Loveless developed knives that just kept on working. Award winning South African knifemaker Deon Nel is considered among the best Loveless style knifemakers anywhere. His understanding of the Loveless designs and sense of balance is particularly good. Here, he has created a uniquely South African knife -- a biltong knife -- but in the Loveless style. The results are incredible!
Biltong is a dried, cured meat that is practically a South African pastime. It is purchased in slabs and cut into small, thin pieces that are eaten right away. Often, it is sliced while holding the meat, rather than cut against a board. The single bevel blade geometry allows this knife to slice very thin, clean slices.
The Bohler N690 stainless steel blade was meticulously hollow ground and mirror polished. It is razor sharp. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance, hard use knives.
Blue/black pakkawood handle scales are set on the distal tapered full tang for strength and durability. The handle is perfectly contoured for a secure, comfortable grip that you won't want to put down. It is completed with four stainless steel pins. The 304 stainless steel guard meets perfectly to the handle scales.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather storage pouch.
Exceptional work throughout.
