Custom Kwaiback Lefty

Buying a custom knife shouldn't be a challenge. My goal with this side of the website was to allow customers who would like to go above and beyond our awesome production knives and acquire a full blown custom knife, that is hand made here in the US, in Idaho, by Jake Hoback.

Customs are hand ground, hand fitted, tuned individually,  use different parts than production in most cases.

This is a choose your own adventure. meaning that you choose the features and materials from the below drop downs and I will build it 100% made to order here in my shop in Idaho.

Lead times vary, but typically are 10-12 weeks for made to order products. keep in mind that we can not account for global catastrophes, shipping delays, material availability, or just the general craziness of our current world. we do our best to keep time frames to a minimum and stay in contact throughout the process. At the end of the day if you have a question you can always email me at

All custom knives start with a base price and a set of standard specs.
