    I know that we should all come up with our own designs but there is only so much that can done that has not been done before. That being said I am looking for a place or person that has a a pattern for a Loveless drop point hunter. I am not looking for a blank just a pattern that can be trace on steel. I have tried countless times to make up a LDPH design and they never seem to come out right. Any help would be appreciated.

    Mike L, your pattern is spot on. And I noticed that you noticed Loveless knives don't have a choil.
