Description

Description

As legacies go, a man could do worse than being survived by the famous knife he designed. Such is the case with the late Colonel Rex Applegate. He was one of this proud nations top authorities on close-quarters combat in particular, and fighting knives in general. The Applegate-Fairbairn Covert stands with the Applegate-Fairbairn Combat as lasting symbols of the colonels dedication, expertise, and sense of purpose.

It should come as no surprise that these two knives are known internationally as best-of-class among folding tactical knives. They've rightfully earned a reputation for unmatched strength, durability and balance.

More than that, tactical professionals have high regard for the high carbon 420 stainless steel blade. As well as the glass-filled nylon handles, and the patented rotolock. The Combat has the added convenience of a hearty pocket clip and a ballistic nylon sheath.

I still have one like this I bought well over a decade ago and bought my Son one just like it. Get the "hinge" adjusted just right and you can have no play but also have a knife that you can flick open as fast as an auto despite the size of the blade. I hope they come sharper than they used to as I remember having to spend some time on the ceramics for a long time then the strop to get my old one to shave. GREAT self defense and a TREMENDOUS hunting knife as those serrations which I generally dislike do come in handy if ya need to saw through a pelvic girdle on a deer or the like. STRONG blade, quick opening, GORGEOUS and MEAN looking knife. I am amazed that Blade HQ can keep this knife in stock. I am waiting for my budget to allow me to purchase a new one as my old one is a bit heavy use worn as the blade can easily stand up as a prying tool when needed. GREAT knife that I have a tremendous fondness of and that I have been looking for a long time only finding its "junior" version readily available. I do wish there was a non serrated blade version of this knife but I have a serrated sharpening tool for a reason I guess!
