Like its bigger brethren in the Applegate-Fairbairn line, the Mini Covert is all business. Agility. Speed. Balance. Control. Toughness. These are the traits that help make the Mini Covert a coveted piece of optional equipment.
High carbon stainless steel makes the blade indisputably capable. Textured, fiberglass filled nylon makes the handle absolutely reliable, and comfortable in your grasp. Clip it securely in your pocket, mister, and you're ready to roll.
I bought this YEARS ago. (model 46924) EDC, use it every day! Utility purposes. Open beer, groom fingernails, serrated hacksaw, open wine (narrow enough to use the blade instead of a cork-screw) cut copper wire, etc... Miscellaneous abuse every day for more than 20 years, re-sharpen and abuse again... EVERYONE I know, kids, family, etc, everyone loves it. It is not large, not a Rambo-guerrilla, Crocodile Dundee, definitely not an extension of your male ego. And some might say its too small for self defence... I disagree... it is longer than a dog's tooth...And if it were in Bruce Lee's hands... It has been discontinued, so i have retired it, probably give it to somebody who cares about sentimental value... I would love to be able to replace the tool. Now i carry the full-size 05780, also recommend the mid-size 05785.
