In the nearly 50 years that I have been in this business, I have been impressed by many knifemakers, but none have had more impact on my mind and career than the two Bobs. In the 1960s and 1970s, I learned more about knifemaking from these two men than I had learned in the previous 20 years of work and study. Dozier has talked for years about the debt owed to Loveless by the knifemaking community. Most of today's knifemakers are unaware of their legacy, yet the two makers who they most often copy (even if the maker is unaware of the original source) are Robert W. Loveless and Robert L. Dozier, the first for his magnificent designs and the second for his very basic, hunter oriented, simple knives.

While many, if not most, knifemakers have based a good portion of their knives on Bob Loveless designs, none have done more than take the basic shape and style and then inject their own ideas into the finished knives. The idea behind this Loveless design made by Dozier is to be absolutely as true to the finest Loveless knives as it is possible to be. Dozier has taken features from past Loveless knives and made an effort to produce the finest possible example of the Loveless Drop Point Hunter. He presented the first of these to Bob Loveless when he visited the Loveless shop to have Bob teach him the Loveless way to make leather sheaths.

This Dozier Drop Point Hunter has a 3-5/8" drop point blade of D2 at 59-61 Rc. The handle is green canvas Micarta® scales over a thin red liner with stainless bolts and thong hole liner and a full tapered tang. Measures 8" from tip to butt and weighs 5.9 oz. The sheath is hand made by Dozier and is of a quality to match the knife.

These knives will be limited to about 10 a month, which is all Bob can produce. If a Dozier knife is not in stock when you order, delivery typically takes 3 to 4 months.
