JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Let's set aside that I'm a total knife geek for a moment. Let me tell you about a brand new knife with such a great design and price point that EVERYBODY should own one!
The all new CRKT HOMEFRONT is a daily carry must have. The idea behind the HOMEFRONT is to be a 100% functional and maintainable field knife for the lucky person that owns it.
Let's take my own personal experience for example, I love the desert, I'm out there all the time and you can guarantee two things...one, my knife gets dirty and two, of course it gets full of sand. Now, imagine the adventures you and your new HOMEFRONT can tackle.
Easily broken down, easily cleaned and easily reassembled. All on the fly too! Brilliant, just brilliant!
The vintage looking model packs a 3.5 inch modified drop point AUS 8 stainless steel blade, 6160 aircraft-grade aluminum handles and brand new technology CRKT appropriately calls "Field-Strip" and the best thing...it's all for a price point of $150 bucks!
A simple flick of a finger and an unscrewing with a thumb, the HOMEFRONT breaks down allowing you to do a quick service, keeping your knife working properly at all times.
Check out the specs:
-Blade Length: 3.502" (88.95 mm)
-Blade Edge: Plain
-Blade Steel: AUS 8, HRC 57-58
-Blade Finish: Brushed Steel
-Blade Thickness: 0.133" (3.38 mm)
-Closed Length: 4.728" (120.09 mm)
-Weight: 4.8 oz
-Handle: 6061 Aluminum
-Style: Folding Knife w/Locking Liner
-Overall Length: 8.313" (211.15 mm)
Take a look at this "how to" clip to see just how easy breaking the HOMEFRONT down really is.
Time will tell for sure, but it looks like CRKT hit it out of the park with this one folks! To check out the HOMEFRONT and the rest of the CRKT line up, check out:
