When it comes to combat knives, there are very few names that mean more than Colonel Rex Applegate and William E. Fairbairn. The two are responsible for making one of the most iconic combat knives of all time: the Applegate-Fairbairn fighting knife.

Gerber picked up a folding version of the knife and turned it into the original Applegate-Fairbairn Combat Folder. After making some improvements, Gerber landed on the Covert -- a smaller, more pocket-friendly version of the knife. It's been a huge success.

The Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Covert Auto is an automatic version of the famous folding knife. Made in the United States of America, the automatic Covert has a 3.78-inch S30V stainless steel blade that uses a spring-loaded auto release to engage the blade quickly and reliably with the push of a button.

Its black-coated dagger-style blade has a piercing point and partially serrated edge. The manual and spring-assisted versions of the Covert have remained top options for military personnel and this automatic version only makes the case even more compelling.

The black handle is made of 6061 aluminum and features ridges to increase the grip. It comes with a sliding safety feature to ensure the blade does not accidentally deploy when storing it.

An included removable deep-carry pocket clip ensures easy carry.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York�?s famous Museum of Modern Art.

From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident�?, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.

Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.

Buck Knives Fixed Omni Hunter 12 Pt Knife with Black Handle and Guthook Blade
"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
