Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Covert Assisted Openers
The Applegate Fairbairn dagger has been released many, many times and many of those were by Gerber as folders of various sizes. This is the first we have seen with an assisted opening mechanism. The Colonel would be proud! True to its original basic style, this new release features a G10 handle and black coated blade.
Here is the lowdown from Gerber:
The Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn series was designed by the late Colonel Rex Applegate, the authority in close quarter combat and fighting knife design. The Applegate F.A.S.T. series combines the ease of the spring assisted opening with uncommon durability and balance. Strength comes from high carbon surgical stainless steel blades and textured glass-filled nylon handles, which are reinforced with a stainless steel inner frame. Recognized by military, police and tactical units around the world as simply the best of the best tactical folding knives.
