From the Manufacturer
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 nation's top authorities on close-quarters combat in particular, and fighting knives in general. The Applegate-Fairbairn Covert from Gerber stands with the Applegate-Fairbairn Combat as lasting symbols of the colonel's 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 upgraded CPM-S30V stainless steel blade. As well as the glass-filled nylon handles, and the patented rotolock. The Applegate-Fairbairn special Combat folder knife has the added convenience of a US made walnut stand.
Top customer reviews
Comfortable and well balanced.
S30V stainless steel blade.
Smooth easy blade deployment.
Easy to carry every day.
Cons: Poor fit and finish.
Not sharp when purchased.
Illegal to carry in some locations.
Prefer non-serrated blade.
I purchased #238. The mircarta handles have a visible gap that runs down the back and around the bottom. The liner-lock would engage so tight that it took two hands to disengage it and the roto-lock was so tight that I had to pry it up with another knife to disengage it. I removed the blade, honed the contact surface for the liner-lock, oiled and reassembled it. The blade deployment, liner-lock, and roto-lock function perfect now.
This review sounds BAD but this has been a GOOD every day carry knife and I think it's BEAUTIFUL!
1- The two halves of the handle are held together at the pivot point of the blade. Yes, there is a lanyard hole, but it doesn't assist in holding the handle together, only from twisting apart. If it did tighten the handle, the gap wouldn't have been a problem.
2- The pivot point of the blade is held at just the right tension with some sort of thread locker (like loc-tite). Taking it apart results in the loss of that goldilocks tension, causing the blade to angle too far left or right and possibly rub when you fold it shut. Do not disassemble this knife! If you must, then be sure to have some thread locker on hand.
