About the Paraclete: The Hoback Paraclete is the newest killer design from Jake Hoback, and is a change of pace for Jake. A medium-large flipper, the Paraclete feels rock solid in your hand and is ready for work, and boasts a radical new design and feature. Awesome, smooth flipping action thanks in no small part to the incredible Hoback Roller Detent (HRD), and super solid lockup that is maintainable for years of abuse with a replaceable lock bar insert. A thanks to the internal lightening, blade profile and being bit thinner overall than some of the other Hoback knives, the Paraclete sheds a ton of excess weight. Probably the most innovative feature is Jake's new 270 Lock. Instead of using a standard 'straight' profile for the frame and blade locking surfaces, the 270 Lock uses a round profile frame lock surface that mates to a corresponding blade lock surface, providing 270 degrees of locking surface contacting at different angles and pressures. As you can imagine, this results in a lock that takes a ton of time to hand tune, but once done basically eliminates any rocking, sticking, flexing or slipping.The lock side inlay pulls double duty as an over travel stop for the lock bar.
    • HRD (Hoback Roller Detent)
    • New 270 Lock
    • Replaceable AEB-L hardened steel lock bar insert
    • Inlay doubles as over travel stop
    • Low profile titanium clip reversible for right or left side placement
    • Custom machined pivot with caged bearing system
    • Interior of frame has machined pockets for weight relief

    The Blade: Custom, hand ground, radical recurve tanto style profile with upper swedge in CTS-XHP stainless steel. Stupid sharp! The blade has an dark acidwashed finish. Woven carbon fiber blade window inlays and flipper tab inlays.

    The Frame: Full titanium framelock with woven carbon fiber inlays. Matte blasted frame and titanium pocket clip with OD Green finish. Lock side inlay acts as lock bar over travel stop.

    HRD (Hoback Roller Detent): Most folder designs use a ball that is press fit (so it does not actually roll) into the lock bar to act as a detent to keep the blade closed as well as to keep the lock bar from dragging along the blade when opening. The HRD takes this to the next level. There is actually a captured bearing that fulfills the traditional detent roles BUT actually rolls and acts like a ball bearing. Therefore, friction is greatly reduced enabling the knife to have a better action. In addition, it allows for some adjustment as well as easy replacement for wear.
