Boker Applegate Besh Wedge Combat Knife
Boker Knives brought back the infamous Applegate Combat Knives several years ago and made them better than anyone ever had in the past. They have now integrated the very clever Besh Wedge tip into the design. This tip is another edge instead of being a point. You really have to examine the picture above top get the idea, but it is supposed to be stronger and more effective than a pointed tip. You can see them at: www.knifecenter.com
Boker Knives describes this product as follows:
Two top tactical features come together for a unique combat knife. The proven Applegate with its well-balanced design guarantees excellent handling, while the ergonomics allow a fast and safe change of grip position. The blade incorporates the special Besh Wedge design, developed by the Canadian knifemaker Brent Beshara, which combines an extraordinary tip strength with maximum penetration capability. The bead blasted blade is made out of 440C stainless steel. A high quality Kydex sheath allows various carry positions. Blade length: 6″. Overall length: 11″. Blade thickness: 3/16″. Weight: 9.4 oz. Made in Solingen, Germany.
