Jake Hoback Knives introduced the Paraclete line of knives at the recent Blade Show in Atlanta. Two of the new knives are now available for purchase. These are the Scorched Earth Fallout and the OD Green.
Scorched Earth Fallout
This knife is a folding design with a 3.75″ long blade made of CTS-XHP steel. The handle is made of titanium with carbon fiber inserts. For this knife, the finish is a scorched earth color.
One of the unique things about this knife design is the locking mechanism. According to the company, the lock engages 270˚ of the lockface. The design accomplishes this through the use of multiple angles that contact at a variety of pressures. Jake Hoback Knives states this is “..to make sure that the lock will push the blade against the stop pin and not allow lock rock, and to avoid the lock sticking by not flexing and giving.”
The OD Green knife is functionally identical to the Scorched Earth Fallout model. However, it is finished in an OD green color. Both knives are 5.2 ounces in weight. They can be carried either right or left handed with the tip up.
Both of these knives are limited and number and are shipped in a “first come, first served” basis. If you are interested in either of these knives, you should consider jumping in quicker rather than later.
Phil Note: I own two of Jakes custom knives and I can’t say enough good things about them. Reviews will be coming soon.
