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.

As Jake says, "When I started this project in 2010, it was after I had spent countless hours researching folding knives, mechanisms and lock geometry. I thought to myself, why not put this information into a solid model so that everyone who is getting into making folders can start with a finished idea to look at while they build their very own awesome knife. So I set out to make the knife in such a way that it could be made with simple tools, no CNC necessary. All you would need to do is waterjet cut a blank and start drilling and tapping."

Jake designed this knife to have a modified sheepsfoot blade, which he engineered to have a proper frame set. His design also allows the Hoback OSF to handle the stresses of everyday use and a larger handle to blade ratio due to its single point rear standoff/backspacer. The blade steel is CPM-S35VN, which is heat treated to perfection. Jake himself dubs the OSF as a "NPD" (Never Put Down) knife. With several options to make it your own, the Hoback OSF Authorized Dealer Exclusive Knife with 3.5" Blade will be sure to rank among your favorites.
