TheCarbon Fiber Kwaiback is the culmination of 4 years of R&D that adds up to the most improved and refined knife in our current lineup. Our motto is "form follows function," and our mission was to shave 1/3rdof the weight off a standard Kwaiback while maintaining the bomb-proof ruggedness that Hoback Knives has always been known for.
I'm proud to say "Mission Accomplished!"
The blade steel is the venerable CPM-CruWear with an excellent heat treat that seamlessly flows into and out of the titanium and carbon fiber frame set. There are several options to choose from to make this knife your very own -- including pocket clips, pivots, backspacers, and inlays. This all adds up to a NPD (Never Put it Down), not just a EDC!
