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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Cons: Weight, None
Amazingly smooth and comfortable
Using this for my current EDC to put it to the test. Initial impressions out of the box.......this is a smooth knife with an amazingly tight lockup. Fits the hand perfect, and no hot spots while I broke down a few boxes. I have small hands and still fits perfectly. Build quality didn't match the last reviewer, as this is one of my nicest knives.

What a disaster...
I received mine today. I already have one of the originals which arrived in decent condition for the price that they cost. But this one for $250 should have been perfect, and instead, its going to be returned. Its a real mess. The Italians just don't get this knife making thing. The big ones are 1) Badly off center, 2) Unable to adjust pivot to allow for flipping AND eliminate blade play, and 3) Horrible lock stick. The Chinese one arrived dry and worked, while this one arrived way over lubed, yet they still could not get it to work properly. For $25 I might have kept it for parts, but for $250, no way... And for it to be their 25th anniversary issue, very sad indeed. Its going to be a very sad anniversary celebration.
