The Boker Applegate-Fairbairn II Knife

Hey, guess what. I really like combat knives. This one by Boker is a great choice, and it reminded me of why I utilized (and abused) my own first one; a half-serrated bead-blasted model that's been useful to hack, chop, slice, pry, and become thrown. This is this all-black version, model AF-11. It's advertised as Official Issue to your German Special Forces; no matter whether that's KSK or Fernspah, I do not know. The knife is well-built and obviously a superb weapon. You can see them at the PX for around $130, and I assume "regular" knife stores sell them to get a close price.The Tackle: The Applegate-Fairbairn (referred to in this review since "the AF") has a black Delrin handle, that's 4-3/4" long from the butt to the hilt. The handles is usually textured nicely, and has a shape that lends itself for a non-slip grip. The tackle scales are held with with two (an individual on each side) blackened hex products. The hilt is turned toward the blade, which is blackened steel. There are two rubber seals relating to the hilt and the handle. The hilt is serialized as well.There's a lanyard hole, and it will fit two strands of non-gutted 550 power cord easily. The entire tackle is smooth, with no spots to catch clothing on or hurt ones hand. This will reveal the full tang design...I like the design from this one; not complicated, but very effective. It's some sort of fighting knife, and it's recently been engineered perfectly.The Edge: The AF has a blade created from 440C at 58 to the Rockwell scale. It's 6" longer with twin 5-3/4" corners, and the blade is actually 3/16" thick. The edges are flat ground. The complete blade is coated ebony, and unlike the bead-blasted product I abused, there's no signature about this one. The blade carries a very nicely-executed cruciform condition so it's strong while still being a great stabber. Mine came up razor sharp, just like a combat knife should be. The combination of tackle and blade size and design makes this a very comfortable fighting knife in a grip.The Sheath: This version of the AF has an black Cordura sheath. Its 11-3/4" long while using the knife inserted. A Velcro closure keeps the knife from released, and there are a few grommeted holes for switch attachment. The sheath connects via simple, standard belt loop. It will accommodate a belt as much 2-3/4" wide, which is larger than most military-issue pistol belts.The Applegate-Fairbairn is a great fighting knife, and has been used in the past (even by me) as an effective "user" knife. The blade will pierce with ease, and will slice while using the best of them. For a long time, I've regarded this for the reason that perfect balance between a primary combat knife and a second utility blade. It's a great choice.Something dramatically spectacular regarding the grooves and slots molded into the handle... awesome feel.German knife designer, Dietmar Pohl wrote a book on Tactical Knives; and it had some pictorial material relating to the knives used by Languages like german Elite Forces.
