Jake pulled out all the stops on this Kwaiback Ultra High-End Production mid-tech. It has all of the exact same features as his custom shop work. He didn't dumb down this knife nor use inferior materials or hardware. This knife will rival his customs for fit, finish, materials and quality. Jake believes his hands-on approach helped immensely with this project. The machine shop matched and assembled the knives exactly as he would in his own shop because he was there with them every step of the way to show them how he expected it to be done. The final product is this amazing knife with the same feel as his custom at a great price.

The Carbon Fiber Kwaiback is the culmination of 4 years of research and design that adds up to the most improved and refined knife in Jake's current lineup. His motto is "form follows function," and 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. Mission definitely accomplished here and this is the production piece to have from Jake Hoback.

The Kwaiback is Jake's favorite of his designs. It's the slimmest folder in his lineup simply due to its shape and now that it's in carbon fiber - one of the lightest and most carriable pieces yet. The angular butt end of the knife Jake specifically designed to make it easier to get your hand into your pocket when the knife is clipped in. The 3.75" blade is made from stonewashed CPM-20CV stainless steel, with a nice flat grind. The action is smooth and lightning fast thanks to pivot thrust bearings and Jake's own Hoback Roller Detent. This design puts a rolling ball into the detent which drastically reduces the friction while the blade is moving for better action. The presentation scale is made entirely from milled carbon fiber with a matching inlay on the titanium frame lock side. The slender ergonomic shape is extremely comfortable to hold and it completely hides the blade when closed. There is great jimping on the thumbramp and near the butt end of the knife if you're using this blade in the reverse grip. It's a mid-tech technically, but it has all the feeling and looks of a full-on custom knife, while the inlay on the reverse side of the handle absolutely sets this design off. Proudly made and hand-assembled by Jake in the USA.
