Gerber has some of the most expensive and carefully designed knives made. Selling at around $100, these knives are for the connoisseur and the specialist. However, Gerber also designs medium price linerlock folding knives.

Gerber Knife's Black Covert

Top of the line from Gerber Knife is the Black Covert. This black titanium coated stainless blade is 4 3/4 inches long, closed. It weighs six ounces. The Applegate-Fairbairn Covert is an ATS-34 steel single edge blade which is double beveled.

Don't confuse double beveled with double edge. These are not double edged knives. They have a glass reinforced nylon handle, thumb studs, and a patented interlock system.

The Applegate-Fairbairn Combat Folder is a folding knife with the double beveled stainless steel blade. The handle is glass-reinforced nylon with a steel core. It is 5 3/4 inches, closed, and weighs six ounces.
