Applegate-Fairbairn Fighting Knife - Stainless Steel - Boker
Boker's reissue of the Applegate-Fairbairn Fighting® knife uses the fiberglass-reinforced Delrin® handle, thickened in the center for a sure grip. A lanyard hole adds convenience. The handle meets a short, forward bending cross guard that protects the fingers.
Boker achieved the knife's preferred rearward balance by inserting lead weights into the handle-a beautifully ergonomic design. The 6" plain edge blade on this 10-3/4" knife has effective reach with a 1" wide blade that's beefy all the way to the tip. Struck of Solingen 440C stainless steel hardened to a Rockwell 58, the blade has the signatures of Rex Applegate and W.E. Fairbairn etched into the bead-blasted finish. Includes a Cordura sheath.
