Product Description

Colonel Rex Applegate (1914 –1998), member of the American special unit "Office for Strategic Service" (O.S.S.) during WWII, author of several technical books on military hand-to-hand combat and well-known designer of knives, made his revised design of the legendary Applegate-Fairbairn® combat knife available to us. Jointly, we optimized this knife reaching the limits of what was humanly possible: Matte-finish blade of 440-C-Stainless Steel (58HRC), handle of polyamide reinforced with fiberglass, additional integrated weights for balance, a massive brass guard and serial numbering for quality control.

The smaller and handier version of the A-F combat knife was developed with the same concept as its big brother. Handle of fiberglass-reinforced Delrin®, with integrated weights of high-quality steel, brass guard and blade of 440-C stainless steel. The blade has the typical double-conical grinding of a dagger on one side and is hollow-ground on the other.

Kydex® sheath included.

Overall length: 9" (22.8 cm.)

Blade: 4 3/4" (12.3 cm.)
