The CRKT Homefront™ might look like your grandpa’s classic WWII knife, but it’s got an exceptional secret. Underneath the traditional appearance of the Homefront™, you will find Assisted Opening with IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, giving this folding knife a swift and smooth action.
From his shop in Kaneohe, Hawaii, Ken Onion developed the WWII-inspired everyday carry Homefront™ to stay faithful to its vintage origins. The bayonet lug-style flipper sets off the smooth open action of the 3.5” revised drop point blade, while tank tread-inspired jimping on the backstrap sits snugly against your palm.
With the looks of a WWII heirloom, it stands up to any job it confronts. The handle is lightweight, strong aircraft-grade aluminium and houses a Sandvik 12C27™ steel blade for impressive edge retention. True to its assignment as an everyday carry, it comes equipped with a deep-carry clip that allows it to ride low in the pocket.
Classic on the outside and impressively futuristic on the inside, the Homefront™ is about to transform everything.
How Assisted Opening Works
Held securely shut in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation, the blade opens at an impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
