CRKT just turned 25 years old this year and they are celebrating. Big time. They’ve released a run of the Ken Onion designed CRKT 25th Anniversary Homefront and it’s amazing. It still has the Field Strip technology and basic design of the original award-winner but with a few really nice upgrades for this special occasion.
The 25th Anniversary Homefront is limited to 500 pieces and features a premium 3.469″ M390 drop point this time around. They added a fuller to reduce the weight, improve the balance, and make it more badass. Each blade is serialized and has a 25th anniversary blade etch. They also changed up the lock from a liner lock to a framelock. But wait, there’s more! This 25th Anniversary Homefront swaps the previous GRN handle scales with durable, lightweight titanium.
If you’re not up to speed on how the Homefront’s Field Strip Technology works, it basically allows you to take the knife apart into three pieces and get it cleaned up without the need for any extra tools like screwdrivers or torx bits. “To disassemble, close the knife, push the front release lever up. Then spin the rear release wheel clockwise —once you feel the handle release, pull it up and away.” It’s perfect for getting dirt and grime out of the knife’s interior on the go. It’s that easy.
