Applegate-Fairbairn® Combat™, Double Bevel -
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 the 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 420 stainless steel blade. As well as the glass filled nylon handles, and the patented Roto Lock. The Combat has the added convenience of a hearty pocket clip and a ballistic nylon sheath.

Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.

Spear Point Blade -
The classic stabbing blade is the spear point which can have two edges sharpened or only one with a false edge on the spine. The spear point usually has both edges taper equally to a point that is exactly in the center of the blade but sometimes has different profiles for the spine and edge.

Ambidextrous -
Described as able to use both the right and left hands with equal dexterity. Person is both, right and left handed.

Roto Lock -
A lock having a rotary bolt which must be rotated to different angular positions as it is slid longitudinally from the locked to the unlocked position.

Zytel -
A glass filled nylon material used in making handles for knives. DuPont trademark.

5.0 Rating The only knife you will ever need - 12/17/2008
Reviewer: Boy Scout to Cop
I was given this knife by my uncle Steve on my 12th birthday and told me I would never NEED another knife besides this one. I am now 22 years old, and I have put this knife through everything... I took it to every Boy Scout camping trip, backpacking trip, summer camp, winter camp and yes for those of you who know National Jamboree 2001! I know own my own house, have and work full time as a Campus Safety Officer, and I am going to School as well... the only time this knife has left my side is to fly on an airplane. MAKE THE INVESTMENT, FOR YOUR SELF OR A LOVED ONE...

3.0 Rating I am sour on this one - 1/10/2009
Reviewer: Dale
I was pressing down on a piece of plastic and didn't realize that I had picked up the knife sharp side up. The thumb lock didn't lock and it took surprisingly little force to push the blade past the thumb lock. The blade got real close to my hand.
