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 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.
Designed by the late Colonel Rex Applegate--one of this nation’s top authorities on close-quarters combat--the Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Combat folding knife stands as a lasting symbol of the Colonel’s dedication, expertise, and sense of purpose. Internationally known as a best-of-class folding tactical knife, it offers unmatched strength, durability and balance. The 4.48-inch drop point, serrated blade is made of high carbon stainless steel, and it's complemented by a glass-filled nylon handle for a good grip under any condition. It also features the patented Roto-Lock, which ensure that the knife remains locked open without any chance of accidental closure or collapse. The Applegate-Fairbairn Combat measures 10.06 inches when open and 5.64 inches when closed, and it weighs 7.4 ounces. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Disappointed. I expected the knife to be sharp; it wasn't. I have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to put a decent edge on the knife. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Jerry L Marsh
