Hoback/Alphahunter Collab Black Stallion WarHorse Folder, Titanium, Numbered

$ 825.00

An incredible collaboration between Hoback Knives and Alphahunter Tactical...

A Few Years Ago:

I had been making folders for about 2 years when, in 2011, Chad of Alphahunter Tactical Design approached me about a project. That project was the WarHorse-- a honkin’ huge knife with a full 4” blade and massive slabs of .200 thick titanium!  Chad and I went back and forth on design parameters for a few days, and the original WarHorse was born.  We did several different variations on the design and even did a mini-flipper version.  The design was amazingly popular, and we sold out of each run we made within days.

A few years went by and Chad and I kept busy growing our respective businesses and doing other things on our own.  All along, though, I’ve wanted to get back with him and make another run!


I’m proud to announce that Chad and I arranged our schedules to collaborate once again on another run. Plus, I pulled out all the stops in a redesign of the knife! I ran a full FEA (Finite element analysis) on it to check for any weak spots. Pocketed all non-structural components to get the weight down. Did a ground-up design of a perfect hardened lock insert.  Even did a full Bio/Organic 3D machined semi-floating backspacer. Added my HRD (Hoback Roller Detent), HCP (Hoback Cammed Pivot), and hardened stainless bearing races.

The result? A brand new WarHorse Chad has dubbed the “Black Stallion!”
