02/15/2017 -

Those who use knives seriously, who skin and gut their prey when hunting, have a very clear idea of the state of the knife at the end of that operation. If the knife is foldable the situation can become dramatic, because removing dirt, blood and fur from the cavities in between the handle pieces is a real nightmare.


The only solution is to take apart the knife, but not everyone is willing or even able to do so. Hence the need for this interesting product from CRKT designed to solve a very serious problem. In addition to being a fine knife, the Homefront can be quickly disassembled without any difficulty by simply using the lever at the blade pivot point, then spinning the knurled wheel on the rear corner of the handle. No other tools needed!

The CRKT Homefront won the prize for most innovative design at Atlanta’s Knife Show 2016 and was chosen as one of the products of the year by Men’s Journal magazine. The CRKT Homefront knife is available in four different versions: Homefront, Homefront EDC, Homefront Hunter and Homefront Tactical. The blades differ in principle from each other.
