As the world's only production combat knife ever designed based on actual military combat expertise, the Boker Applegate-Fairbairn Fixed Blade Combat Knife is truly innovative. Designed by award-winning American knifemaker, Bill Harsey, this model is kin to the modernized 5.5. model, bearing the same features as its predecessor, in a more compact form, and with enhanced ergonomic design. The blade shows the signatures of Rex Applegate and W.E. Fairbairn on the ridges of its front face, etched to a bead-blasted finish: these two established colonels are the military minds behind the knife's functional design.
The blade is a 440C stainless steel, the highest carbon content steel from the 400 stainless steel series, rendering it exceptionally hard, at a Rockwell hardness rating of 58, and easily sharpened to a razor's edge. The 440C is also extraordinarily corrosion resistant, and finished with a durable stonewash.
As per Colonel Applegate's instructions, steel weights were carefully inserted inside the handle to bestow the knife with unprecedented balance and a comfortable hold. The ergonomically designed handle is a result of injection molding from indestructible nylon, resulting in handle grooves that lend an outstandingly secure grip. The sand blasted canvas of the micarta handle scales ensures a comfortable hold, with just the right amount of abrasion to lock your hand in place. At the hilt, you'll find a pronounced cross-guard with the knife's serial number etched on its side, lending your hand a final protection barrier. Sheathed in kydex, a waterproof and scratch resistant material, your knife is kept safe from the elements and securely fastened to your belt, thanks to Boker's special Tek-Lok attachment system. Invest in this first-class Boker combat knife, and be prepared for any card fate should deal you.
