Jake Hoback's knife making journey began in 1990 when he would crank out knives utilizing a chunk of steel, a framing hammer and fence post nails. From there, he transitioned to working in a blacksmith shop where he solidified his love for the trade. Fast forward to 2003 where Jake started making and selling knives professionally. He has been making outstanding products ever since.
If you are looking for the most improved and refined knife in the Hoback lineup, the Carbon Fiber Kwaiback is it. It is the result of four years of research and development. The Carbon Fiber Kwaiback is 2/3's the weight of the standard Kwaiback, yet maintains a bombproof reliability. The blade is made from CPM-Cru-Wear and has a Sandblast Stonewash finish. The handle material is Bronze Anodized Titanium with a Carbon Fiber inlay. If uniqueness is your thing, there are several options to choose from to make this knife your very own - including pocket clips, pivots, backspacers, and inlays.
