Colonel Rex Applegate, with over 40 years of knife design experience, is legendary in the world of hand-to-hand combat. The Applegate-Fairbairn family of knives rank as lasting symbols of the Colonel’s dedication, expertise, and sense of purpose, earning international status as best-of-class amongst folding tactical knives. Based on the classic Applegate-Fairbairn fixed knife, the Mini Covert is a mini-pocket clip version of the Gerber original Applegate-Fairbairn Covert Folder.
THE TACTICAL POCKETKNIFE
A totally relevant knife for today’s deployed military, the Mini Covert folder’s powerful design is highly adaptive for storage due to its being a folding knife, while the blade, when extended, provides the same strength as a fixed blade knife. Equipped with the features of the Covert and the Combat Folder but compressed into a closed length of under 4 inches and a weight of 2.2 ounces, this knife can be carried on patrol in a near-endless manner of ways, performing its duties with ease and a lightweight agility that no other close-quarter combat knife can mimic. Clipped to MOLLE, hooked from a belt loop, or tucked into a boot, the Mini Covert will accompany its operator through any conflict.
PERFECTLY BALANCED PERFORMANCE
With a nearly 3-inch partially serrated drop point blade made of high carbon stainless steel, the Mini Covert folder is an elegant close-quarter conflict knife. The blade’s black oxide coating provides low visual signature, its face etched with the Applegate and Fairbairn signatures. Dual thumb studs allow for easy one-hand opening of the folder. Featuring a grooved glass-filled nylon handle and a stainless pocket clip, the Applegate-Fairbairn Mini Covert folding knife looks and feels as impressive and beautifully balanced as its name suggests.
