Introducing the Chupacabra Superlock

When Will Hodges tasked our lead engineer, Matt, to make a Superlock knife that's "better than anything out there," we didn't really know where to start. After weeks of deliberation and countless pots of coffee we ended up with a model that, while not our typical design language, prioritized function over form and felt amazing in hand. During the prototyping phase we jokingly referred to it as Chupacabra (the vampiric mythical beast) due to the pronounced spine and, well, the name stuck.

Manufactured in house from premium materials, the Chupacabra's MagnaCut sheepsfoot blade serves as the foundation for ceramic caged bearings, anodized 7075 aluminum handles, and titanium hardware – making it perfect for any task. Completing the knife is a stainless steel clip for deep pocket carry.

Priced at $249 MSRP, the first production batch will be available for purchase April 11, 2024 with two blade finish options: Tumbled and Satin.

Superlocks are a relatively new mechanism that utilizes a lock bar and coil spring to wedge the blade open, making it strong and reliable option. This unique design enables user serviceability and can easily be disassembled and maintained using a T8 torx driver for a lifetime of use.
