Some go where the wind takes them. Some push back against the breeze with all their might. Some, like the hobo, realizing that from strong winds grow strong trees, choose which gusts to jump aboard and which to let pass by.
Hobos were people who, in the face of economic hardship, took to trains in search of work and a living wage. What began as a means to survival became a way of life for some, and continues to this day.
The Hobo Knife is a tool to aid you on the road. With a removable knife, spoon and fork (complete with bottle opener), this knife has everything you need for life on the road or rails.
The Hobo Knife is a collaborative effort between Sitka and CaseXX, producing a USA-made, custom, one-of-a-kind, utility style knife. The Hobo knife features custom engraved Sitka ‘Hoboglyphs’ on the blade and Sitka branding on the oak handle.
