The Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn series was designed by the late Colonel Rex Applegate, the authority in close quarter combat and fighting knife design.

Strength comes from high carbon surgical stainless steel blades and textured glass-filled nylon handles, which are reinforced with a stainless steel inner frame.

Pros: Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Does Nothing Well
The ideal tactical folder would serve well as a basic cutting tool, and as a back-up weapon. Col. Rex Applegate certainly had the self-defense application in mind when laying out the blue print for the Applegate-Fairbairn folders. I think a high-ground spearpoint blade dagger should be the ideal knife, but this one does nothing well. The edge is too short and thick to cut anything very well, and it is really too small to serve well as a backup weapon. Pass on this and get the really useful regular size Covert FAST which seems to do everything pretty well, or even the original Covert.
