This knife is called "all stainless stiff horn" and its main characteristic is that it is full integral. Full integral means a complex machining technique whereby the knife in all its parts, including the head, guard and pommel, is made by meticulously milling and filing a single piece of steel. This knife was created by the famous American knife-maker Mike Lovett. It comes with a handmade natural leather cover.

Mike Lovett learned how to make his very first knife at age 6 or 7, and from that point on Mike made his spending money making and sharpening knives for other Scouts. In 1966 Mike saw his first Bob Loveless knife and he was hooked, and when he got out of the Air Force in 1975 he bought a square wheel grinder and the rest is history. Mike was fortunate to have many fine mentors along the way, but he always likes to mention that most important of all is the core knife making philosophy he holds in common with Bob Loveless. A knife does have to be attractive enough for people to want to pick it up, but more importantly, it has to feel right in the hand, not only in one position but in all of the positions in which it is likely to be used. Through all of this contact and coaching Mike has learned how to make the Loveless knife correctly, learning in the process that it's not enough to emulate him, you have to know and understand all of the ins and outs of the design. A copier or a counterfeiter simply cannot accomplish this to the proper degree, and this is what separates the Lovett-Loveless connection from all the rest.
