Renowned CRKT Field Strip™ Technology gets three new looks.

CRKT® is releasing three new versions of the Homefront™ folding knife. Designed by Ken Onion of Kaneohe, Hawaii, they’re among the first in our fleet to feature “Field Strip” technology. This in-field, no-tool take apart capability lets you purge your most reliable companion of a hard day’s grime right where you are, without ever returning to your workbench.

These three new versions build out the already wide versatility of the original Homefront™—this CRKT® release features the Homefront™ Hunter, the Homefront™ Tactical, and the Homefront™ EDC. Both the hunting knife and the EDC feature a plain edge while the tactical version is complete with an extremely tough EDP coating and serrations for ultimate usability. All three blades measure in around 3.5”, but the Homefront™ Hunter’s big bellied blade shape, and the Homefront™ Tactical’s Tanto shape cater them specifically for their respective battlefields.

Across the board, ergonomically designed glass-reinforced nylon handles provide a secure grip in any position even in the face of mud, blood, rain, or sand, which is heightened by backstrap jimping on the Homefront™ Hunter. The hunting version also features Realtree Xtra® Camo so realistic, you’ll be afraid of rustling leaves when you get your hands on it. The sturdy locking liner provides confidence while each blade is open and in use, and breakthrough Field Strip technology makes cleaning a simple, quick task.

The innovation has been over ten years in the making. To disassemble each version 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.

Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, these new Homefront™ releases are about to change everything.

The Homefront™ EDC manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $99.99
The Homefront™ Hunter manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $99.99
The Homefront™ Tactical manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $99.99
