1999 Marbles Sport 99 (R.W. Loveless) Knives

R.W. Loveless approved Marble Sport 99 knives were produced in the Mike Stewart Era at Marbles 1997-2001. The knives were produced in Gladstone, MI in 1999. Mike Stewart and Bob Loveless were good friends and had a close-working relationship, and Mr. Loveless provided input and approval for this classic and versatile design. The 52100 steel was considered by many to be the finest blade steel Marbles ever used. Knives from this series came in the Bobcat box and are sought after because they were only manufactured for one year, carry the R.W. Loveless approved oval on the blade and were produced during the Mike Stewart Era at Marbles before he left to form Bark River Knives.

The knife has a satin finished blade with .210" blade stock and .957" blade depth, hidden tang construction. The handle has a brass guard, aluminum butt, stacked leather grip, black/brass/white/red spacers. Comes with brown leather sheath and original box and papers. Excellent condition.

Loveless, R.W. (Bob)

Robert Waldorf Loveless (January 2, 1929 – September 2, 2010), a.k.a. Bob Loveless or RW Loveless, was an American knife maker who designed and popularized the hollowground drop point blade and the use of full tapered tangs and screw-type handle scale fasteners within the art of knifemaking. A hunting knife on the table of nearly any American knifemaker today will show the influence of knifemaker Bob Loveless. In the beginning he turned the knife industry on its ear, and made modern handmade knifemaking possible. He was at the beginning of everything: The Knifemaker’s Guild, drop point hunters, high quality steels, custom designs, How to Make Knives books, the Japanese Knifemakers Guild, the rise of Japanese cutlery manufacturers, utilizing handmade designs for American manufacturers. You name it and Loveless has had a hand in it. He is cited by other knifemakers and collectors as one of the most innovative custom knife makers in the world. Inducted into the Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall of Fame in 1985.
