BO1210545: Applegate-Fairbairn 5.5

Few custom knifemakers have had such an influence on the tactical knife scene as William H. "Bill" Harsey. His designs have developed an impeccable reputation in the world of tactical knives. His custom versions are difficult to obtain. And now, Boker is grateful and proud to announce a collaboration with Mr. Harsey, resembling the legendary Applegate-Fairbain dagger. The Harsey 5.5 is in use with several elite units around the world, and will be enhanced with modern features, to create a highly functional knife concept. The blade length provides the perfect compromise between utility and easy of carry. The expanded width and improved geometry of the double-edged, bead blasted 440C high performance steel blade immensely improve its cutting capabilities. The extended tang doubles as a glass-breaker, and the CNC machined handles, crafted of green canvas Micarta, are extremely durable and comfortable, providing a secure grip even in wet conditions. This piece comes complete with a foliage green premium tactical sheath, manufactured by Spec-Ops Brand (USA), which can be mounted in various positions and has a pouch on top, for other gear (such as a multi-tool). Blade length: 5 1/2". Overall length: 10 5/8". Weight: 8.5 oz. Knife made in Solingen, Germany. Sheath made in USA.

Cons: Weight, Sheath/Scabbard
Daggers are for stabbing
Had a good look at this handsome blade, while contemplating to stretch my visa. This blade is designed for stabbing only, nothing else. The blade length of 5.5 inches is enough to reach kidneys, liver or heart/lungs in a Homo sapiens. Not sure about the toughness of 440C to prevent point breakage, in case some dummie stabs it in wood and tries to wrench it out. Most of these blades will land up in a collectors cabinet, where they probably belong. If you live in the USA, this might be a liability to carry. It might give you false self confidence. Remember the phrase: DO NOT BRING A KNIFE TO A GUNFIGHT.

Its a dagger.
Im guessing this blade would excell at its designed task. I enjoy owning it a great deal. Why the h#ll someone would buy this for a hunting and utility blade then complain is beyond me. Its a dagger.

High quality , usability - meh!
First, I have pictured this knife will be my carry-on tool on trips in mountain trails, camping knife and occasionally during the bird hunts to clean geese. It has turned out it is good for neither of the tasks listed above. Too heavy to carry on hiking trips and too large, hell to sharpen and challenge to keep the edge to process the birds after the hunt and not really suitable for food preparation. The most of my concerns the the blade steel , which does not holds the edge well, difficult to sharpen and mixed success with a choice of stones , from fine diamond to 4000 Japanese water stone. Steels like VG-10, D2 and even Buck's 420HC stay sharper longer than what's on this knife. The prospective use of this knife in my view would be a limited choice of military applications, defined by "dagger" definition. As ex-military, who trained in knife work, I would prefer other type of handle and a different blade geometry.
