Jake Hoback Knives Custom Tradecraft OTS Automatic (Solar Flare Pattern, Stonewash Finish)

No reviews yet Write a Review

Jake Hoback Knives is proud to announce the release of an Automatic OTS (Out The Side) knife dubbed the “Tradecraft.” 

The Tradecraft is an automatic knife with a 3.25-inch blade that features caged pivot bearings and a unique button lock of Jake’s design. It is much stronger than typical automatic knives due to the materials used and structural design of the locking mechanism. When designing this knife, Jake set out to not only create a reliable tool, but also to make a knife that would astound you when you open it. 

There are more and more states coming forward to repeal knife laws that restrict the ability of men and women to enjoy carrying and using automatic knives in their daily lives. The demand for these knives from service members and first responders has grown exponentially, as they want the best tools available to execute their missions. The Tradecraft is designed to be a good-looking everyday carry knife that is tough enough to exceed the demands of our first responders and military customers. With a 1/8th inch blade thickness and 5/32nd inch thick frame, the Tradecraft fits the hand well and doesn’t take up valuable pocket space.
