So as we pass year 2 of my wait for a folder from one of our very own custom knife makers here.....which I paid in full for ($850) upon ordering....  I decided that I needed a pokey cutty folder for those increasing times when I think about getting my stab on.

So meandering through Bladeforums I found this.  I have always wanted a Hoback Kwaiback but his books, like many single makers, are currently closed.  Also, they are around $1400 depending on options.

He started another line, the Mk4 Ultra High End Production (UHEP) Kwaiback.  Jake still assembles every one of these himself.  This thing is so killer, I really wonder how his custom  could be any better.

This is a very beefy knife.  Solid milled Ti with a 3.75” blade (max for carry in CT is less than 4”).  The gentleman I bought it from got it at Bladeshow directly from Jake.  He added a custom pivot, clip and solid Ti backspacer as opposed to standoff’s.  The entire knife is coated in black DLC.  This is a flipper and the blade FLYS out.  The blade is made of one of the new ultra steels, 20CV.  He is supposed to make one of the sharpest blades around and I am a believer simply because I cut myself less than one minute after taking it out of the box.  I didn’t feel it and only noticed when I saw the blood.  That’s sharp.

Come beautifully packaged in a wooden box with a leather wrap.  This knife was $880 originally and I was very fortunate to get it for $450.  This knife was worth every penny just to curb my geometrically growing anger over the whereabouts of my other custom folder.  For now.

John,

Is it an assisted flipper, or a flipper where you provide all the impetus?

That is beyond nice, btw.

Pure flipper.  All on you.  I keep flipping it and it is getting smoother by the minute.  The tolerances are amazing.  Dead centered blade, no lock stick or lock rock.  I love this thing.

Well thank goodness for that.  I do blame you for almost hitting the "add to cart" on Monkey Edge last night on a Kwaiback.  Luckily talked myself down because I need another expensive folder like a hole in my head.

Never hear from you and when you do pop up, you take a shot at me.  Nice guy.

Yes Sir.  My absolute favorite. You will not be disappointed.  I have never seen a midtech come so close to the full custom version.  I do recommend the solid backspacer rather than the standoffs and the custom pivot but those are easily available afterwards.

Extraordinary piece and a great find. Good luck with it.  I really like Jake’s Kwaiback with the frag handle. That’s tempted me more than once.

Unfortunately for me, Bladeforums holds the distinction of being the only place on the entire internet I was ever ripped off.  So while there are often tempting deals, never again.
