Steve Hoel, Pine, AZ jade masterpiece. THE KNIFE: Jade handled interframe, with reverse engraving and inlaid gold handles, engraving by J. Mason, coffin and coke bottle shape, 3 closed, 5 1/2 open, lockback, and beautiful. THE MAKER: As early as 1974 Steve Hoel spent time in the shop of Bob Loveless (Steve Johnson was still working with Bob at the time) and he soon developed an interest in folders, joining the Knifemakers' Guild in 1978 and began making knives full time in 1979. He was among the first of the Art Knife Invitational makers, and his knives are classics the instant they are completed. He is ranked 14 on the list of the top knifemakers of the first 40 years of knifemaking. His knives are among the most desired in handmade knife collecting.
