CRKT Homefront EDC Flipper Folding Knife
The Homefront EDC is among the first in our fleet to feature “Field Strip” technology. This technology allows you to clean and restore your knife to perfect working order without tools, right where you stand so you don’t skip a beat.
- Breakthrough "Field Strip" technology innovation
- Field Strip lets you easily disassemble your knife for cleaning without tools
- 1.4116 Blade Steel + Glass Reinforced Nylon Handles
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™ EDC 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™ EDC knife to stay true to its vintage roots. The bayonet lug-style flipper sets off the smooth open action of the stainless steel 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 of stealthy black, glass-reinforced nylon and house an impressively beefy silver stonewash blade.
Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, the Homefront™ EDC is about to change everything.

Diverse EDC built for functionality

I had been looking for a knife like the CRKT Homefront for a long time. For me, the Homefront performs a variety of roles that suits my every situation. It sturdy but simple construction gears it towards functionality. I am a home care aged care worker and required to prepare meals for elderly clients, many with dementia. Good knives are hard to come by in their homes. The lightweight but large blade Homefront is inconspicuous and replicates a perfect kitchen for cutting and preparing meats, vegetables and fruits. It fits in and out of the pocket easily and smoothly. Its presentation is acceptable in a cafe, unlike a tactical knife, when it comes to cutting up kids meals or cutting down meals for people with movement disabilities. I am also an avid bushwalker and trekker and always nominated as the camp cook. It not only prepares camp meals quickly and safely but fulfils its strength and robust construction completes all bushcraft functions. l use it for fishing, gardening and general duties. Its diversity is made possible by its unique feature of being able to take it apart, wash and clean it thoroughly and put it back together without any problems. It has a kind of vintage look with the blade having a satin finish which gives it a unique appearance.
