Description
 
About the A8: Sometimes, you just don't want a big 'ol tactical knife. Well the A8 Slimline aims to take on a hard use, overbuilt tactical folder role without making it feel like you have a sledgehammer in your pocket! The full titanium frame feels great in your hand, and has gone through extensive lightening to shave any excess weight. These pockets double as some extra grip on the outer sides of the frame. Being a Hoback UHEP, you can really feel the precision construction and finishing that goes into each knife, and each sports an array of killer high-tech features:
  • HRD (Hoback Roller Detent)
  • Replaceable AEB-L hardened steel lock bar insert
  • Low profile titanium clip reversible for right or left side placement
  • Custom machined pivot with caged bearing system
  • Titanium backspacer with lanyard loop

The Blade: Modified drop point profile with tip bevel. Stonewash with black DLC finish.

The Frame: Full titanium framelock with stonewashed, black DLC finish.

About the UHEP: UHEP stands for Ultra High End Production. Many custom knife makers are putting out 'production' versions of their knives with varying levels of quality. Jake has said that he is actually 'a machinist who happens to make knives'. With that obsessive attitude towards precision and quality, With the Hoback, Jake has truly raised the bar with the Hoback UHEP line

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.
