It might look like Daniel Boone's classic hunting folder, but it's got an impressive secret.
The Homefront Hunter is among the first in CRKT's fleet to feature “Field Strip” technology. This in-field, no-tool take apart capability lets you purge your most reliable companion of whatever mud, blood, or grit you may encounter right where you are, without having to step foot back in civilization.
The breakthrough "Field Strip" innovation comes from the shop of world-renowned knife craftsman Ken Onion and has been over ten years in the making. To disassemble the Homefront when the knife is in the closed position, push the front release lever away from the blade, then spin the turn release wheel on the rear of the handle away from the pivot shaft—once you feel the handle release, pull it up and away from the blade. Reassembly is as easy as reversing the procedure, allowing for practical, quick maintenance where you stand.
From his shop in Kaneohe, HI, Ken Onion designed the tactically inspired, everyday carry Homefront knife to stay true to its vintage roots. The bayonet lug-style flipper sets off the smooth open action of the 3.5" modified skinner blade, while tank jimping on the backstrap sits snugly against your palm.
It stands up to the looks of a WWI heirloom, and it sure as hell stands up to any job it encounters. The handles are made from glass reinforced nylon with a Real Tree XL camo finish and house an impressively beefy German 1.4116 stainless steel blade. Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, the Homefront is about to change everything.
