Among the entire variety of combat knives, completely blackened versions are basically a must-have. The black versions are very popular, not just for military operations, but also due to the special charisma of such dagger and the added corrosion protection provided by the coating. So it was basically our duty to add such a variant of the A-F 4.5 and A-F 5.5 models. Hardly any other knifemaker has influenced the field of tactical knives as much as William H. “Bill” Harsey, his designs have earned him an excellent reputation in the knife world. His modification of the legendary Boker Applegate-Fairbairn combines the knife used by many elite units with modern elements. The larger blade width and the more favorable geometry of the double edged N690 blade with black PVD coating improve the cutting properties, while the blade length offers an optimum compromise between guidance and utility value. The tang reaches out of the end of the handle and it can be used as a windowbreaker. The CNC-milled handle scales made of black Micarta are extremely durable, pleasantly structured and offer excellent grip even when wet. Delivery includes high-quality black nylon scabbard by SpecOps.
