JAKE HOBACK KNIVES & PVK INTRODUCE THE TRADECRAFT COLLABORATION
Available December 2017
Exclusively Through PVK.com
Jake Hoback Knives and PVK are proud to announce the upcoming release of a collaboration knife – an Automatic OTS (Out The Side) 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.
PVK will be marketing, selling and fulfilling orders for the Tradecraft through their website at pvk.vegas and from their showroom on the Las Vegas strip. December shipments are planned.
“When PVK approached me about collaborating on an automatic, it brought back memories of the two Kwaiback automatics I made years ago,” said Hoback. “I couldn’t wait to make more, and to add some new design features as well.”
“We are excited to team up with Jake Hoback to premier the Tradecraft – the first full-fledged automatic from this maker,” said Jeremiah Burbank CEO of PVK. “We are more than confident that the Tradecraft will meet and exceed even the most discerning user’s needs and expectations.“
