Jake Hoback is one of our favorite custom knifemakers here at the KnifeCenter, and the Kwaiback is his signature design. Mike at Custom Knife Factory has been eyeing Jake's work for years, hoping to someday have a collaboration piece between the two and we're happy to say that day has finally come. Mike and Jake pulled out all the stops on this CKF/Hoback Kwaiback Collaboration. It has all of the exact same features as Jake's custom shop work with the action, stylish material combination, and build quality you've come to expect from Custom Knife Factory. It isn't a dumbed down version using inferior materials or hardware. This knife will rival custom level pieces for fit, finish, materials, and quality. The final product is this amazing, highly collectible knife with the same feel as a custom at a great price. Apart from the pivot on the presentation side, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between this and a true Kwaiback, even after you have it in your's that excellent. The attention to detail in regards to the grind, jimping execution, and interior milling, as well as minute features like the pocket clip and scripture mark, is absolutely spot on. The only differences are that Mike's chosen not to use the HRD Hoback Roller Detent and gone with his own two-row ceramic bearing system and we must say the action might just be improved. If you're a fan of CKF or Jake's, you've got to try out the collaboration Kwaiback as comparing it side by side with an MK4 mid-tech model, it just as nice and even superior in more ways than one.

Hoback, Jake
I'm an 80's kid, and always searching for information. I started making knives back in 1990 in my back yard pounding out knives on a huge chunk of steel with a framing hammer and fence post nails. Went from there, to working in the summer time with my best bud at his dad's blacksmith shop in Virginia City, NV. From there on out I was hooked. I started professionally making and selling knives in 2003 and have been on a roll ever since. If you want to know my back ground, youll have to get to know me. All you have to know is this: I can break a steel ball in a rubber room. I make my knives according to that.
