JHKCTCAUTOSA: Custom Tradecraft AUTO Folding Knife, Stoneage
Jake Hoback Custom Knives
Jake Hoback Knives is proud to announce the release of an Automatic OTS (Out The Side) knife dubbed the “Tradecraft.” Many people have been wanting a Kwaiback not quite as large as the original but not as small as the MK Ultra either and this knife is just that. It hits the sweet-spot in terms of size and the addition of a reversible wire clip a la Spyderco makes for a very low-profile tactical design.
The Tradecraft is an automatic knife with a 3.25" blade that features caged pivot bearings and a unique button lock of Jake’s design. It is much stronger than typical automatic knives due to the materials used and structural design of the locking mechanism. When designing this knife, Jake set out to not only create a reliable tool but also to make a knife that would astound you when you open it. It's not a definition of speed in terms of opening action but, then again it's not designed to be a rocket ship, it's made to be a hard-use cutting implement that is out of the way when not in use.
There are more and more states coming forward to repeal knife laws that restrict the ability of men and women to enjoy carrying and using automatic knives in their daily lives. The demand for these knives from service members and first responders has grown exponentially, as they want the best tools available to execute their missions. The Tradecraft is designed to be a good-looking everyday carry knife that is tough enough to exceed the demands of our first responders and military customers. With a 1/8th-inch blade thickness and 5/32nd-inch thick frame, this custom Tradecraft fits the hand well and doesn't take up valuable pocket space. Brand new from maker. Handmade in the USA.
