The week of the 2016 NRA Annual Meetings in Louisville is upon us. This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Dan, Nick, and I will be in attendance bringing y’all as much of the new product information and other goings on as possible. Among the deluge of press releases, Agency Arms, best known for their seriously pimped out GLOCKs, has announced that they’re teaming up with Jake Hoback Knives to offer a limited edition — apparently only 50 of them — out-of-my-price-range flipper called the “Agent Knife.” Press release and more photos follow . . .

That’s an ugly-ass knife.
For $850 I want something with a little bit more pizazz.
I don’t mind the look of the knife. The problem is, most of those angular, snarky looking knives are painfully uncomfortable to hold onto. I’m a bit of a knife nut, and own a bunch of Gerber, CRKT, and others that live in the safe because all those cool pointy edges prevent a good hold and poke you in uncomfortable ways if you really are bearing down on a cut.
Excellent exhibition/collector item, I should say. People buying out Hinderer stuff will definitely appreciate.
You realize Hillary will give you only $50 a piece for them in her guns and knives mandatory “buyback” program, right?
Is the knife has any locking mechanism like speedSafe, inner lock, frame lock, liner lock?
