Jake Hoback Full Custom OSF Bronze Star Finish Acid Stonewash Blade Custom Knife


In stock

Product Description

This Jack Hoback Full Custom OSF with a colorful Bronze Star finished titanium handle with a bronze and gold faded star burst look. OSF stands for “Open Source Folder.” that Jake hasn’t made in years and has made a handful November 2016.

As Jake says, “When I started this project in 2010, it was after I had spent countless hours researching folding knives, mechanisms and lock geometry. I thought to myself, why not put this information into a solid model so that everyone who is getting into making folders can start with a finished idea to look at while they build their very own awesome knife. So I set out to make the knife in such a way that it could be made with simple tools, no CNC necessary. All you would need to do is waterjet cut a blank and start drilling and tapping.”

The knife design itself is a modified sheep’s foot blade with a properly engineered frame set. The single point rear standoff/backspacer is large enough to handle knife stresses but small enough to allow a rather large handle to blade ratio.
