The various versions of the Boker Applegate-Fairbairn have been convincing special forces all over the world for years and have emerged as an icon among tactical knives. The knife goes back to the classic Fairbairn-Sykes dagger from World War II and was designed by Col. Rex Applegate. The elite soldier coordinated secret operations throughout Europe during the war and even became President Franklin D. Roosevelt's personal guard. He trained Allied Special Forces in close combat and founded the "School for Spies and Assassins" in today's Camp David. Later he continued to work as a consultant and trainer, wrote numerous books about close quarter combat and began to develop and improve the perfect combat knife.
The Applegate-Fairbairn Dagger, which has been proven countless times in heavy duty, comes now in an exclusive version, especially for the collector. A nicely rounded handle, made of selected certified imported Grendill Wood feels perfect in your hands, while the serious knife enthusiast looks at the specially satin ground surface of the blade. The black coated handguard matches perfectly to the character of it. This is a must have in each collection. Comes with an individual serial number and a premium leather sheath.
