The various versions of the Boker Applegate-Fairbairn have been convincing special forces all over the world for years and have emerged as an icon among tactical knives. The knife goes back to the classic Fairbairn-Sykes dagger from World War II and was designed by Col. Rex Applegate. The elite soldier coordinated secret operations throughout Europe during the war and even became President Franklin D. Roosevelt's personal guard. He trained Allied Special Forces in close combat and founded the "School for Spies and Assassins" in today's Camp David. Later he continued to work as a consultant and trainer, wrote numerous books about close quarter combat and began to develop and improve the perfect combat knife.

The beige fiberglass-reinforced Delrin handle with integrated stainless steel weights rests solidly in your hand, the brass cross-guard and the 440C blade with PVD coating can handle every task. Delivery includes a beige Kydex sheath and a large Tek-Lok.

Rex Applegate
Rex Applegate

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.
