A 40 Year Old Return

Recommended Posts

As so often happens with all of us, life happens. I have been away for a while, but it is time to rekindle the fire so to speak. For the last 8-9 months I have been stoking the flames. I will share what I have been doing but I thought I would begin with in fact- a beginning.

I built this knife almost 40 years ago for my Uncle Jim O'Connor.

All stock removal in stainless steel.

He in turn gave to a friend of his. This friend has passed on and the knife found its way back to Uncle Jim. And in turn back to me to spiff it up a bit.

Here is how it came back to me. Some deep scratches on one side but otherwise-not bad for an old knife.

This is how it went back to him. Not as good of photo as the first but you get the idea.

Jim presented it to his son, my cousin Tim O'Connor-who has sons himself.

So, a knife with our name on it will pass on down through the O'Connor Clan.

You don't see a lot of Loveless style knives posted here but it can't be denied the man designed some great knives.

A nice interpretation of the drop point and a great story to go with it. Knife is in pretty good shape for 40yrs old. Good to see it still be cherished after so many years.
