PEOPLE SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE.
You want to build a dedicated AK suppressor?
“You can’t do that.”
“They’re too loud.”
“What about non-concentric threads?”
“How will it mount consistently?”
“There’s too many variations.”
And yet, here it is. AK and combloc gun lovers rejoice.
The Wolverine strikes the perfect balance between suppression and minimal back pressure.
SO WHAT DOES THE WOLVERINE PBS-1 SILENCER FIT?
You won’t have to buy multiple silencers to fit different threaded combloc rifles. The Wolverine offers user changeable thread inserts.
The Wolverine ships with a 14L thread insert. We plan on making 14R, 24R, 26L, 15mm, 16mm, 1/2×28, 5/8×24, and 9/16L as well; and possibly more will be added to the list depending on demand.
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.”
The Carbon Fiber Kwaiback is the culmination of 4 years of R&D that adds up to the most improved and refined knife in our current lineup. Our motto is "form follows function," and our mission was to shave 1/3rd of the weight off a standard Kwaiback while maintaining the bomb-proof ruggedness that Hoback Knives has always been known for.
I'm proud to say "Mission Accomplished!"
The blade steel is the venerable CPM-Cru-Wear, with an excellent heat treat that seamlessly flows into and out of the titanium and carbon fiber 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!
