This mean combat-ready remake of your grandpa’s classic WWI folder has got an impressive secret.
The Homefront™ Tactical is among the first in our fleet to feature “Field Strip” technology. This in-field, no-tool take apart capability lets you purge your utilitarian and tactical mainstay of grit, and whatever else it may encounter right where you are, without leaving the arena.
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™ Tanto 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 right where you are.
From his shop in Kaneohe, HI, Ken Onion designed the Homefront™ Tactical knife to stay true to its vintage roots. The bayonet lug-style flipper sets off the smooth open action of the black stainless steel 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 situation it encounters. The handles are made of black glass-reinforced nylon and house an impressively effective tanto-shaped black blade.
Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, the Homefront™ Tactical ready for deployment when you are.
