Close to our passion for firearms are knives.
This 2017, a brand new set of knives have just been announced. Among the fresh selection of knives just released are the group of Ken Onion ones named the Homefont. What’s so unique about these new knives is the usage of Field Strip tech created by Onion. What does having Field Strip technology mean?
Basically, Field Strip provides you a fast and easy method of dismantling your folding knives with no tools required. This makes it quite easy to clean your knife, especially when it has been exposed to dirt or game.
Using the disassemble feature of these knives is easy. To disassemble, you simply need to push the locking lever while the blade is closed. Afterwards, you rotate the small wheel until your knife starts to disassemble. To reassemble your knife, you just need to reverse the steps enumerated.
There are four different kinds of knives included in the Homefront edition. These include:
- Homefront EDC,
- Homefront Tactical
- Homefront Hunter
The Homefront has a 3.5 inch long blade, and a handle made of 6061 aluminum. This folding knife has an edge on a AUS 8 steel blade.
The Homefront EDC has a blade which is .4 inches longer, and handles glass reinforced with nylon.
The Homefront Tactical is utilizes a 1.4116 SS blade, which is slightly more than 3.4 inches in length. It is coated with black EDP and black nylon handles on the blade.
Lastly, the Homeline series includes the Homeline Hunter, which is quite similar to the EDC version. However, it utilizes 1.4116 SS instead of AUS 8. The Hunter also uses a Realtree Xtra camouflage pattern instead of the usual black handles.
Hopefully you have found the update on the Homeline series helpful.
