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 more favorable geometry of the double edged N690 blade improve the cutting properties, while the blade length offers an optimal compromise between agility and utility value. The blade and the parry element have a durable stone wash finish. The tang reaches out of the end of the handle and it can be used as a windowbreaker. The canvas-micarta blasted grips are extremely durable, pleasantly structured and offer excellent grip even when wet. Supplied with high-quality cordura sheath.
