GB5786: Covert - Double Bevel 154CM, Black, Serrated
As legacies go, a man could do worse than being survived by the famous knife he designed. Such is the case with the late Colonel Rex Applegate. He was one of this proud nations top authorities on close-quarters combat in particular, and fighting knives in general. The Applegate-Fairbairn Covert stands with the Applegate-Fairbairn Combat as lasting symbols of the colonels dedication, expertise, and sense of purpose.

It should come as no surprise that these two knives are known internationally as best-of-class among folding tactical knives. They've rightfully earned a reputation for unmatched strength, durability and balance.

More than that, tactical professionals have high regard for the high carbon stainless steel blade. As well as the glass-filled nylon handles, and the patented rotolock. The Combat has the added convenience of a hearty pocket clip.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great Knife
I am a technician so this knife is used for many different purposes. From day 1 I have not given it a break and it has not let me down yet. The ease of one hand opening and blade sharpness are a winner.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
This is a fine emergency reserve knife. Reasonably good balance. So far just for cutting cord. But I use cord to go around the wrist which enables to swing between over and underhand in a flash. Keeps an edge reasonably well and the handle is in my opinion comfortable and solid. I like the locking system, very secure

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Best Pocket life I have ever owned.
I owned one of these for several years. The blade was a little stiff and difficult to fold in and out at first, but after it was broke in, it was smooth as silk. I carried it as my EDC for 4 years. Never any play or wobble in the blade at all. Or defects or malfunctions, other then the pocket clip bent such that it would no longer bite, so I removed it and stuck a lanyard through the lanyard loop instead. The 154Cm blade held edges extremely well. Lost it while hiking yesterday. :(
