Renowned tactical custom knife maker William H. "Bill" Harsey offers his spin on the legendary Applegate-Fairbairn fighting dagger. The Boker A-F dagger has seen many iterations and has earned its reputation as the quintessential combat dagger with extensive use by elite forces around the globe. This version has a black PVD coated N690 blade and black canvas Micarta handle. Brand new, direct from Boker, Solingen. Blade: The N690 dagger blade is broad for added strength with a black PVD coating for enhanced corrosion resistance and a discreet, non-reflective finish. A powerful piercing tool, the more compact length allows for good control and added utility with modified geometry for better cutting ability. Handle: Dual slabs of CNC milled canvas Micarta surround the tang in a symmetrical, hand filling handle. Micarta is tough, weather resistant and offers traction even when wet, further enhanced by milled jimping and grooves. A flared guard provides added safety while the exposed tang at the pommel can be used as an emergency glass breaker and impact tool. Carries via a MOLLE compatible black nylon sheath with accessory pouch. Bohler N690: N690 is a high quality stainless steel, considered an upgrade to 440C. It has higher hardness and wear resistance for better edge retention while sacrificing some toughness. Corrosion resistance is high, at or better than VG-10. Easy to sharpen, this is a well-balanced steel for daily carry and use.
