The Homefront™ Hunter is among 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 whatever mud, blood, or grit you may encounter right where you are, without having to step foot back in civilization.
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™ Hunter 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 Homefront™ Hunter to reflect both vintage WWII military styling and complex, effective hunting camouflage. The lug-style flipper sets off the smooth open action of the stainless steel blade, while tank jimping on the backstrap sits snugly against your palm. The big-bellied blade is ideal for long, sweeping swipes when you’re field dressing your kill.
It stands up to the looks of your grandpa’s old hunting folder, and it sure as hell stands up to any job it encounters. The handles are made of glass-reinforced nylon and have a Realtree Xtra® Camo so realistic, you’ll be afraid of rustling leaves when you get your hands on it.
Classic on the outside, impressively futuristic on the inside, the Homefront™ Hunter is about to change the way you hunt.
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.
