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 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 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.
