As legacies go, a man could do worse than being survived by the knife he designed. Such is the case with the late Colonel Rex Applegate who was one of this nations top authorities on close-quarters combat. The Applegate-Fairbairn Mini Covert stands with the Covert & Combat as lasting symbols of the Colonels dedication, expertise, and sense of purpose.
It should come as no surprise that these 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. The glass-filled nylon handles. The Covert and Combat have the patented roto-lock system.
