Discover the exceptional craftsmanship of John Kubasek custom knives, where you'll find impeccably constructed cutting tools that offer outstanding value. With nearly thirty years of experience in the knife industry, John has witnessed numerous passing trends. However, his designs have endured the test of time due to their timeless, elegant, and functional qualities. John's focus is on building practical knives rather than artistic ones, and he excels at it.

One remarkable example from his collection is a carbon fiber masterpiece. This folding tactical knife boasts an unparalleled length to weight ratio, arguably the best achievable in its class. Its specifications include a 4.08" blade, an overall length of 9.57", and an astonishingly lightweight of only 2.93 ounces. The secret behind this achievement lies in John's proprietary lamination technique, which involves bonding carbon fiber—produced in-house—to D2 tool steel. The results are truly astonishing. In John's rigorous testing, the lamination process demonstrated exceptional durability, surpassing all levels of use and abuse. Surprisingly, the point of failure was not the lamination itself, but rather the blade, which cleanly broke in half under an increasingly heavy load. This outcome unequivocally demonstrates the authenticity and reliability of the lamination process.

In addition to the extraordinary blade, this knife features a full carbon fiber handle with a small inset titanium liner lock, further reducing its weight without compromising its strength. This masterpiece represents the pinnacle of custom, handmade artistry, and we are confident that you will absolutely adore it.
