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.
