Jake Hoback is an 80s kid and started making knives in 1990 in his backyard pounding out knives on a huge chunk of steel with a framing hammer and fence post nails. He then went to working in the summertime with his best friend at his dad's blacksmith shop in Neveda. After that, he was hooked to making knives. In 2003, he made the switch to professional knife maker and has been producing top quality blades ever since. We are excited to work with Jake Hoback and his team in bringing another high end brand to our growing catalog.
