This is what a quarter century of Confidence in Hand looks like.

CRKT was born 25 years ago. To do right by this momentous occasion, they are celebrating with a limited run of 500 premium 25th Anniversary Italian Homefront knives built with Field Strip. Each is numbered, features the 25th-anniversary logo, and is crafted in Italy of top-quality M390 blade steel and 6AL4V titanium handles. 

From his shop in Kaneohe, HI, longtime CRKT designer and world-class craftsman, Ken Onion designed the tactically inspired, everyday carry Homefront knife to stay true to its vintage roots. The bayonet lug-style flipper sets off the smooth open action of the 3.465" 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 Field Strip 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.

Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, the 25th Anniversary Italian Homefront is about to change everything.

How Field Strip Works

Field Strip Technology lets you easily disassemble your knife for cleaning without tools. 

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. Handles and blade come apart easily. To bring the knife back together, place the blade and handles into the closed position - press and hold the pivot. Once the pivot is seated correctly, rotate the release wheel counter-clockwise until snug. Push front lever down. The knife is restored to full working order.

expensive knives due to a decent steel
Alright this is a decent design that entered the market as a middling knife at about 50 bucks and that's all it will ever be worth and if CRKT had some sense they would make it from a decent steel for that Price! $95 should be made from the M390 and then they would sell a bunch of them, but as all makers in the US seem lately with the exception of Buck and maybe some of Benchmades knives the products are overpriced and under equipped with decent materials. I spent 185 for a decent assisted opening Benchmade made from M390 and at that price I paid too much. The knife is decent but if Benchmade wanted to sell a lot more of them they would bring down the price point to 125 and it would start the Barrage flying off the shelves. I think that is what I bought at a gun show in Raleigh. Its a good knife but takes a lot of work to sharpen it and yes I know I can send it in and get them to do it, but anyone who is a collector should know how to keep their pieces sharp. I do, and I enjoy it but with some its a labor of love. Especially M390 blades.

Fantastic Knife
This knife is fantasticly made and came to me in perfect condition , was a bit of a chore to get in canada but was worth the hassle, the knife pivot can be adjusted the review stating it can't has no idea how knife pivots work , all you need is simple tools and blue locktite, the centering can be adjusted by adjusting the pivot but mine came perfectly centered from factory , the teflon washers arnt what I would have used , i woukd have used PB washers but they work and are quite smooth for what they are , im not a fan of the pocket clip thats the only negative for me personally everything else is flawless and im use to high end knives like CRK , Olamic , Holt , etc , obviously can't fully compete with some of these but stands right there next to them and ends up getting a ton of pocket time!

I should have expected this from CRKT
The knife blade simply will not center. I have over 100 knives in my collection from $50 to $550 and this is the only one in which the blade won't center no matter what I do. CRKT supposedly only made 500 of these high end anniversary edition knives so I figured it would be better than their budget offerings. The materials are better, but the quality is the same - poor. Teflon washers in a lousy pivot design.CRKT didn't even bother to respond to my email when I contacted them about the issue, so I'm stuck with a $300 paperweight that no one wants.
