The Choppa is the original knife that started it all for Hoback Knives.  My original Choppa was a 10” blade version.  The first one made was way back in 2003!!!  (Man, do I feel old now!)

I designed the blade shape and handle to work for me while I worked at Fish and Wildlife in field work.  It is a true working man's knife -- big, beefy, and made to be put to work. Forward and rear lanyard holes allow great security while using the knife and also allow lashing the knife to a short haft to make a impromptu axe or spear.

Custom versions of this knife have been used since 2003 by SWAT/LEO/DOD/DHS/MIL teams in battle theaters all over the world, also in the hands of civilians collectors.

For a clip to attach the Choppa's sheath to a belt, check out Discreet Carry Concepts or Tek Lok.
