JHK Kwaiback CF Midnight Bronze/Black Cerakote

$850.00

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 samuraiclass in Japan. It was useful for self-defense in indoor spaces where the long blade katana and intermediate sword wakizashiwere 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.”

Hoback/Alphahunter Collab Black Stallion WarHorse Folder, Fallout 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!”

Plus...  Every knife will be inscribed with Ps121 (Chad's pick)!

Key features include:

  • 3” Blade
  • DLC Fallout Black
  • Hardened Stainless Lock Insert
  • Hardened Stainless Bearing Races
  • Full Bio/Organic 3D Machined Backspacer
  • Redesigned Ergonomics for Comfortable Hard Use
  • Full Internal Lightening Pockets
  • Proprietary Hoback Cammed Pivot
  • Integrated Lanyard Slot
  • Full FEA (Finite Element Analysis) for Complete Design Integrity

JHK A8 Slimline Folder, 3.25" Blade, Tiger Stripe Camo

$625.00

A8 Slimline

The A8 is the down-home, hard-work inspired folder. We built this knife to be at home in your pocket, so it’s always where you need it and you don't have to think about it. It just plain works. We took the A10 folder and scaled it down to be much more pocket-friendly, while still being large and in charge! The A8 still sports a 3.25” long blade like its A10 big brother, but it’s much narrower and slides into the pocket with ease.

And anytime you see the word “Slimline,” you know the knife will be lighter, faster, and thinner for even more ease of carrying. It will boast the same strength and precision engineering you have come to expect from Jake Hoback Knives.

JHK MK Ultra Folder, Titanium Black Fallout

$450.00
MK Ultra
The MK Ultra is our smallest and lightest knife to-date. Experience gained through 12 years of knife-making guided me in building this knife. Everything was thought-out and engineered to make it as strong and reliable as possible!

The stainless steel lock insert is completely captured by internal 3D machined pockets. The only visible portion of the lock is the generous jimping for lock release.

The precision-turned 17-4PH pivots and standoffs have a +-.0002 tolerance.

The MK Ultra features rolling bearing construction, with hardened stainless bearing races.

 

This Knife Is Made To Last!
