The Applegate-Fairbairn from Gerber is one of their high end outdoor knives and was designed by Colonel Rex Applegate, an American military officer who trained Allied special forces personnel in close-quarters combat during World War II.
His knowledge of blades has lead to the creation of one of the most effective folding blades on the market. The spear point blade features a semi serrated edge that improves cutting power especially on tough materials such as wood or rope. The blades built in thumbstud enables easy one handed opening.
The handle is made from Nylon that is reinforced with glass to provide excellent resilience whilst keeping the knife light weight. The handle also contains a liner-lock mechanism which keeps the blade in place for added security.
Includes a ballistic nylon sheath for storage.
