Who Likes Chute Knives?

I was looking over your knife collection, Your probably getting tired of hearing this, but "wow" I forged a couple of times with Tim Zawada and he had a great respect for Jimmy Fikes, There was a story of a few smith's getting together for cutting contest, Fikes won hand's down, This was some year's back, someone will have to ask mr. Zawada or Mr. Fikes if they want the whole story.

I was looking at the pictures of your knife collection,It's outstanding, But I like the picture of your wife,It is almost comparable, I hope I don't have to write a retraction.

:) I will be posting a ivory handled engraved chute in the next week, and I am having three more engraved, right now, I'm not that wild about engraving, But I like to look at them, and I can show my WIFE why I'm Broke. R.N.P.
 
BOY WHAT FANTASTIC KNIVES, You can see each maker's style, or his version of the chute knife, every one a work of art.

Bob asked if I would be so kind to post this. Sunday-go-to-meeting chute in elephant ivory. ;)





Don't know the engraver. Bob....?

That is just beautiful. Both knife and engraving.
Looks a bit like Joe Mason's engraving.

I wish more engravers would sign thier work. Bruce Shaw actually signs his name in cursive, however so small you would never see it unless looking for it.
This piece is a four thumbs up for sure. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
 
Another terrific Chute, Robert. The red liner really sets of the Ivory and the engraving. WOW!!

These two were just recently completed by South African maker Rob Brown. Handled in desert ironwood and hippo ivory.
 
If the knife porn gets any more attractive this will need to be put into Pirate's Cove ! :p

Those are stunning, John!

Freakin' keeps getting better. Just when you think it's over a couple of more beauties pop up.

Keep it up guys.

What a terrific job Coop did on all my photo's, I can't tell him enough how I appreciate that extra mile, He has me wanting to collect my own knives, And Jim helped me with my web name Classicknifedesign.com, he is Sharp all the way around. R.N.P.
 
The engraver's name is Dave Lark, He work's with Christian DeCamillis, who tought Steve Dunn to engrave at the GRS school in Kansas, chris did some knives for me and that is where I met dave, He is a gun smith from Colorado, And we did a knife together for his nephew, headed for Iraq, You will be seeing a lot more of his work in the future.

Why on such lovely knives do makers "chicken scratch" serial numbers on them? In this case #236? It seems like it would be much more professional to have the number engraved if it is chosen to be put on the knife. To me, it really detracts from a perfect knife.

It is a traditional Loveless hallmark, hand "scratched" by the maker's himself. I understand where you are coming from, but that is the way it is.

Lovett's knives are not hanging around waiting for buyers.

BTW, folks, not sure what it is, but the Parker chutes don't look quite "right" to me. As far as I can tell, the handles are not very sculpted, and the blade grinds look washy.

No insults intended.

Sweet knives, especially the Ivory handled ones! If you keep posting this stuff, I will have replace the keyboard on my computer, Drool kills! Steven
 
All absolutely perfection in steel. I would be proud to have any or all in my collection.:D
 
:D The thickness of the material some times makes it hard to get a deep sculpture on my handles, this ivory was kind of thin, and so, I hand sand my blades from 1000 grit to 2000 grit, I lose some of the grind line for the mirror finish, I think if you saw one of my knives up close you could appreciate it. R.N.P.
