CRK&T Homefront - Designed by Ken Onion

Perhaps the most unique feature to appear in the knife world in the past decade, the new CRK&T Homefront, designed by Ken Onion will be one of the most practical and unique knives you will ever own. Utilizing what CRK&T is calling their "Field Strip" technology, the Homefront can be easily taken apart in the field for cleaning - without any tools!

This innovative "Field Strip" feature 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 wherever you are.

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 drop point blade, while tank jimping on the back-strap sits snugly against your palm. The handles are made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and house an impressively beefy AUS 8 stainless steel blade.

Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, the Homefront™ is about to change everything.
