Before his death in 2012, Bob Loveless spent decades making a big impact on the knife making community by creating some of the most innovative knives around the world.

Now, his legacy is being honored in a documentary premiering on April 26 at the Beverly Hills Film Festival called “Robert Loveless, An American Legend.”

According to the film festival site, the documentary explores the legend of the man and how he became a superstar in the custom knife world. It also looks at his personality, gentle and fearless, but not without its flaws.

For those of you in the Los Angeles area, I recommend checking it out. Here’s the information about where/when/how to see the film from Joe Kertzman’s blog at Blade Magazine:

The screening will take place as follows:

Clarity Theater
100 North Crescent Drive
Beverly Hills

Red Carpet at 5:30 p.m.
Film Runs from 6:00 – 7:20 p.m.

This will be followed immediately by a cocktail reception. For those who will join Wormser, Lucarelli and Ellis, they are also hosting a pre-theatre get-together at 4:00 p.m. at Mel’s Diner, 8585 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

Please RSVP to Ed Wormser at

Although there’s no information on whether the film is currently slated for a wider release, it’ll be interesting to see if it comes out on DVD for knife enthusiasts to buy.
