The smaller and thus more handy version of the Applegate-Fairbairn has been developed according to the same concept as its big brother. Fiberglass-reinforced Delrin handle with integrated stainless steel weights, brass cross-guard and 440C blade steel. The blade has on the one side a typical double conical dagger grind and on the other side a hollow grind. Delivery includes a Kydex sheath and a large Tek-Lok.
Delivery was on time and the packaging was more than sufficient.
The knife has a good weight and the balance meets my expectations. Sharpness is top and it lies very well in the hand. Also the appearance corresponds exactly to the description.
I love the Applegate, the sheath is perfectly fine.
Good knife but it comes with the worst Sheath ever, they call it a boot knife but with no possibility of attaching it to a boot lol
Rex Applegate was born in 1914 in Oregon, where he was taught to hunt and shoot in his youngest years. After graduating from the University, he joined the US Army in 1940. Shortly before the beginning of the war he became a member of the OSS, the Office of Strategic Services of the United States Department of War. The tasks of the OSS included the operational information acquisition, disinformation, psychological warfare, partisan support, asymmetrical warfare, sabotage and counterintelligence. Col. Rex Applegate trained Allied Special Forces in close combat and founded the "School for Spies and Assassins" in today's Camp David. He coordinated secret operations throughout Europe and was employed to guard President Franklin D. Roosevelt. After the Second World War, he continued to work as a consultant and instructor, was author of several books about close quarter combat and started developing and improving combat knives.
