Ancient Days One Off Custom Kwaiback

$1,900.00
Like the samurai swords of lore, we have put many countless hours into perfecting the Kwaiback into a knife that is as flawless as we can possibly make it. We pulled out all the stops with this knife! We cut no corners, nor looked for any easier ways to do it. This knife was built with hard work, for hard work. Fully-engineered internal lightening pockets, hardened stainless steel lock insert, HRD (Hoback Roller Detent), hardened stainless pivot, and stainless pivot bearings. These are just a few of the things you get with a Hoback Knife. The rest you'll just have to see for yourself! This is what we know from Wiki about the "kwaiken" blade (and by the way, if you haven’t already figured it out, Kwaiken + Hoback = Kwaiback!): The kaiken "was once carried by men and women of the samurai class in Japan. It was useful for self-defense in indoor spaces where the long blade katana and intermediate sword wakizashi were inconvenient. Women carried them in their kimono either in a pocket-like space (futokoro) or in the sleeve pouch (tamoto) for self-defense. When a samurai woman married, she was expected to carry a kaiken with her when she moved in with her husband." "…the kaiken is now called kwaiken (pocket knife). The modern term has no reference in historical records; also called a futokoro-gatana.”

Jake Hoback Custom OSF with Vietnam OD Green Handles

$1,500.00
OSF stands for Open Source Folder and it was an idea of Jake's a number of years ago that had the potential to change the industry. Jake wanted to help out aspiring knifemakers by releasing the entire CAD file to allow someone with a CNC machine to make this exact knife. Every minute detail Jake spent months perfecting was included, so all you had to do was run the program and your CNC mill would take care of the rest. The only stipulation was that you could not profit from the manufacturing of his design. As you'd expect, someone abused this privilege and Jake was forced to take down the CAD files and put the OSF on the back burner...until now. There are only a handful of custom OSFs floating around out there and it happens to be without a shadow of a doubt our favorite Hoback, so if this knife and its story speak to you, don't hesitate, as it won't be around for long. The OSF has many design features and characteristics that make it one of the best custom knives to be put back onto the market in recent years. The sheepsfoot blade gives you belly for slicing and a reinforced tip for stabbing, which is why it's one if not our favorite blade shapes. The handle tapers down toward the butt end, making it extremely comfortable no matter your grip method. It's a big, beefy knife, like most things Hoback, but it's extremely well designed for everyday carry and tactical applications. It measures 8.75" overall with a 3.625" blade made from Chad Nichols stainless Random Damascus with a beautiful acid etched finish. The titanium handle has Jake's "Dam Vietnam" OD green anodizing on top of the KnifeCenter exclusive Bedform finish. This complex milling pattern looks great and provides a great deal of traction for your fingers. The two pillar construction makes this knife completely flow-through so you can easily see the intricate machining that went into creating the internal lightening pockets. It includes the HRD Hoback Roller Detent, replaceable lockbar insert/overtravel arrestor, full custom hardware, and a story unlike any other knife in the industry.

Hoback/Alphahunter Collab Black Stallion WarHorse Folder, Titanium, 3.07" Blade DLC BLACK

$800.00
The Black Stallion WarHorse A Few Years Ago: I had been making folders for about 2 years when, in 2011, Chad of Alphahunter Tactical Design approached me about a project. That project was the WarHorse -- a honkin’ huge knife with a full 4” blade and massive slabs of .200 thick titanium! Chad and I went back and forth on design parameters for a few days, and the original WarHorse was born. We did several different variations on the design and even did a mini-flipper version. The design was amazingly popular, and we sold out of each run we made within days. A few years went by and Chad and I kept busy growing our respective businesses and doing other things on our own. All along, though, I’ve wanted to get back with him and make another run! Today: I’m proud to announce that Chad and I arranged our schedules to collaborate once again on another run. Plus, I pulled out all the stops in a redesign of the knife! I ran a full FEA (Finite element analysis) on it to check for any weak spots. Pocketed all non-structural components to get the weight down. Did a ground-up design of a perfect hardened lock insert. Even did a full Bio/Organic 3D machined semi-floating backspacer. Added my HRD (Hoback Roller Detent), HCP (Hoback Cammed Pivot), and hardened stainless bearing races. The result? A brand new WarHorse Chad has dubbed the “Black Stallion!” The WarHorse is Available in either a DLC Black Finish or a DLC Black Fallout Finish! The First 50 Knives in this Limited Edition will be Numbered! Plus... Every knife will be inscribed with Ps121 (Chad's pick)!

Hoback HERO SERIES OSF Authorized Dealer Exclusive Knife, 3.5" Blade

$550.00
"Authorized Dealer Exclusive OSF" This knife will be available only through our Authorized Dealers. Please click the "Notify Me" button to receive notification when our dealers receive them. The OSF3.5 has been one of those knives that has always had a huge following. OSF stands for "Open Source Folder." As Jake says, "When I started this project in 2010, it was after I had spent countless hours researching folding knives, mechanisms and lock geometry. I thought to myself, why not put this information into a solid model so that everyone who is getting into making folders can start with a finished idea to look at while they build their very own awesome knife. So I set out to make the knife in such a way that it could be made with simple tools, no CNC necessary. All you would need to do is waterjet cut a blank and start drilling and tapping." The knife design itself is a modified sheep’s foot blade with a properly engineered frame set. The single point rear standoff/backspacer is large enough to handle knife stresses but small enough to allow a rather large handle to blade ratio. The blade steel is CPM-S35VN, with an excellent heat treat that seamlessly flows into and out of the titanium frame set. There are several options to choose from to make this knife your very own -- including pocket clips, pivots, backspacers, and inlays. This all adds up to a NPD (Never Put it Down), not just an EDC!

Hoback Kwaiback Fixed Blade, Carbon Fiber w/ Stoneage Finish, 5" Black Fallout Blade

$350.00
After years of making the Kwaiback folder, we have finally been able to get our heads above water and produce a fixed blade version of our well-received folder line. I have always been inspired by the Japanese warrior culture. The Kwaiback has always been a very "Samurai Sword" blade shape, so it was only a matter of time before we decided to run it as a fixed blade. With its properly designed and engineered internal lightening pockets, this fixed blade will go on your belt without dragging you down or having you worry about it breaking. The 5” x 3/16th thick, slightly upswept blade shape allows for very efficient cutting and slicing movements -- just like the Samurai Swords of old. The carbon fiber handle gives that touch of modern to an ancient design, while being comfortable for hard use. The Kwaiback Fixed Blade Stoneage comes with a specially-designed kydex sheath.
