Jake Hoback MK Ultra UHEP Flipper Knife 2.5" S35VN Stonewashed Blade and Milled Titanium Handles
JHKMKUUHEPSW: MK Ultra Ultra High-End Production Flipper, Stonewashed
Jake Hoback Custom Knives
Jake pulled out all the stops on the Kwaiback MK4 Ultra High-End Production mid-tech. It had all of the exact same features as his custom shop work. The knife rivaled his customs for fit, finish, materials and quality. Experience gained through 12 years of knifemaking guided Jake to put this design in an extremely compact version dubbed the MK Ultra. Everything was thought-out and engineered to make this little beast as strong and reliable as possible. The final product is this amazing quality knife with lightweight everyday carry and your wallet in mind.
The MK Ultra came into being when Jake wanted to make a smaller version of his Kwaiback for his wife's birthday. It turned out to be an amazing little flipper that was tactical yet highly efficient at everyday carry chores. Jakes wanted to bring this knife to market at the most competitive price point possible without sacrificing quality in any way. Thus you have a titanium handle with a great performing blade made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel. It's an upswept trailing point shape that is superbly sharp with excellent jimping on the thumb ramp and an index finger groove providing a precise grip.
The handle is 6Al4V titanium with a stonewashed finish. The stainless steel liner lock insert is completely captured by internal 3D machined pockets and the only visible portion is the generous jimping for lock release. This is a superb design that is very easy to manipulate and provides rock solid lockup. The action is smooth and lightning fast thanks to rolling bearing construction with hardened stainless bearing races. It's a mid-tech technically, but it has all the feeling and looks of a full-on custom knife. Proudly made and hand-assembled by Jake in the USA.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
This product is USA born and raised.
