Since the early days of the flagship Kwaiback, Jake Hoback has been bombarded with requests for a slightly smaller blade. But he's a knifemaker... So I couldn't just make it smaller! He decided to revisit the Kwaiback and start from scratch to make a smaller folder with its own uniqueness and wanted to make it stand out on its own -- and not just be a smaller Kwaiback.
The first thing Jake did was reduce the thickness of the materials to 5/32nd, which much better suits the 3 ¼” long blade. Then I designed a compact lock geometry package specifically suited for a smaller knife. He set up an extraordinarily small lock insert with over travel prevention and stuffed a HRD in for good measure! Voila! We have a perfect EDC for those who don’t want a 4” blade! And an external stop pin allows the knife to go further between take-downs for cleaning!
This has a stonewashed blade and a dark green micarta handle.

Badass knife!!!! Yes, it's expensive but I justify it by 365 days in a year. The longer I carry it the less expensive it is in dollar amount. Northwest knives have a lot to look at. Every time I'm in town I stop by a few times to look and by.
This is worth every penny, picked it up this weekend and couldn’t be happier with the addition to my EDC collection. Blade, build, quality shows across the board. Thanks to Northwest Knives for carrying another great knife maker.
Knife arrived quicker than expected, original packaging, brand new. I love my Radford! It’s as sharp as a razor and shows the perfection in the flip. Flawless knife I couldn’t be happier with.
