Columbia River Knife and Tool has been creating some incredible knives since they opened their doors in 1994.  Their goal to produce hard working knives for real people has definitely been achieved.  They also take it to the next level by incorporating all-star designers with massive independent followings.  These icons create production versions of their well known custom knives and CRKT manufacturers them and covers them with their Limited Lifetime Knife Warranty!


Ken Onion is a legend.  Need proof? He holds 36 design patents.  He is the youngest livingmember of the BLADE Show Cutlery Hall of Fame, having been inducted in 2008.  He is the creator of an assisted opening mechanism so popular, it caused a knife company to build a new factory to keep up.  

This is the HOMEFRONT.  It features a classic soldier folder tactical shape and blade, but enhanced with a truly revolutionary new idea: Field Strip technology.  This ingenious design allows the user to break down the knife into its main components, without tools!
