A number of knife makers have made "Integral" Loveless pattern knives. They are nice but in my mind there was something missing. You can make a knife to a specific silhouette/profile but still completely miss the mark if short cuts are taken.
The most noticeable thing missing is a ricasso. The second thing I felt was off is that a a specific thickness of steel was used and there was not any real difference between the handle and the blade.
I have been playing around with them in my spare time and here are a few finished.
