Columbia River (CRKT) CRK270GKP Homefront Folder with Aluminum Handle
It might look like your grandpa's classic WWI folder, but it's got an impressive secret. The new Homefront knife is the first in our fleet to feature 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. 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 sure as hell stands 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.
