Columbia River CRKT Homefront Field Strip Flipper Folding Knife (3.5 Inch Drop Point Blade) Aluminum Handle K270GKP
It might look like your grandpa's classic WWI folder, but it's got an impressive secret. The Homefront flipper is the first in the CRKT fleet to feature the patent pending "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.
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 inch modified drop point blade, while tank jimping on the backstrap sits snugly against your palm.
It stands up to the looks of a WWI heirloom, and it will stand up to any job it encounters. 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 Home-front is about to change everything.
