About the Warhorse: A collaborative effort with Alphahunter, at first glance you probably are thinking "Wow, that is a stubby beast of a knife!" We aren't saying you are wrong, but there is so much more to the Warhorse than it just being a stout flipper. The Warhorse is deceptively easy to carry and wield by even the smaller dudes in the office. Here are Monkey Edge, we have a good focus group for knife sizes, ranging from small to 'too big for society' sized folks. The unanimous opinion from the group is that the Warhorse just works! The magic lays in the size of the frame, specifically how tall it is. For big hands, the height fills the hand very well, and feels like the full sized knife it is without having to have a frame the size of a 4+ inch knife generally has. For smaller hands, the shorter frame doesn't make it feel like you are barely able to hold on to the thing, even if you can't fully wrap your hand around. Packing a three inch blade, some folks assume it is too small or not ready for super hard use. Wrong! Since it is a tall knife, those three inches and steep tip grind gives you a ton of usable real estate. This means it's overall length isn't super long, but there is a ton of edge to work with, more than some knives with a 3.5 inch blade. We are loving this knife! On top of that, it comes with all the technology and innovation you expect from a Hoback knife.

The Blade: Tanto-style blade with large groove and jimping on spine. Finished with black DLC finish.

The Frame: Full titanium framelock with Black DLC finish and black hardware for a "murdered out" look. Extensive fuller grooves for weight savings and extra grip.

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.

About CPM CRUWEAR: It all started years ago with VascoWear manufactured by Teledyne Vasco which was an incredibly tough alloy. Crucible Steel then later came out with their version called Cru-Wear (NOT CPM CruWear) that was their version of the alloy (slightly different formula). Then, Crucible took their patented Crucible Particle Metallurgy and again changed the alloy to create the CPM 3V that we all know and love. The alloy was changed slightly for CPM 3V as at the time the CPM process was not suited to higher alloyed materials. After years of refinement and Crucible able to apply the CPM process to materials up to 36% alloyed, they then we able to add back in the Tungsten, Manganese, and Silicon carbides of the original Cru-Wear and BOOM: CPM CruWear was born. It is an incredibly tough, wear resistant steel. Will take an edge and hold it through abuse.
