Boker

Boker's reissue of the Applegate-Fairbairn Fighting Knife uses 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 steel weights into the handle - a beautifully ergonomic design. The 6" 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 of 58, the blade has the signatures of Rex Applegate and W.E. Fairbairn etched into the bead-blasted finish. Includes a Kydex sheath and belt clip adapter. Made in Solingen, Germany.

SF Member's Dream
As a US PSYOPS member of 15 years, I have had quite a few close encounters with agitated natives in quite a few countries. In the past 10 years I have carried this knife almost everywhere on deployment, and I've had to brandish it more times than I can count. And I've used it twice. The first time I used it was when a police officer in India wouldn't stop trying to touch my M9, so gave him a good slash on his arm, that our medic patched up later of course. The second time was just a standard H2H encounter. This knife is a good combat blade which is nice and light but well-balanced. The blade can be made razor sharp. Included sheath is pretty bad but this is a design that came out in 1941, so it's not that hard to find somebody who makes a better one. Overall, this is a good weapon and tool, way better than a Ka-Bar or distributed bayonet.

excellent knife
This is a very nicely made knife with excellent design and balance. I see none of the flaws in manufacture or sharpening that other reviews mention. It came quite well sharpened, so only really needed some additional honing. The point is very sharp, but not fragile. The biggest question is the tek lok sheath. It is not as bad as some of the reviews would make you think. The rivets do not come in contact with the blade and there is not a rivet (just a drainage hole) at the point. Would a nice leather sheath that comes up halfway up the handle be better? Definitely. But the style and utility of the tek lok sheath is at least consistent with the delrin handles and stainless steel blades, and the clip will allow you to clip it onto webbing without having to thread it through (like you do with a loop on a leather sheath) and perhaps most importantly, the sheath holds the knife securely and allows you to draw it. I plan to get a nice leather sheath made for it, but will keep the tek lok sheath in case it is needed.
