Product description

The connection between Colonel Rex Applegate (1914-1998) and Boker represents a milestone in Boker's history, and the Boker Applegate-Fairbairn in all its versions has made the Boker name exceedingly popular, and firmly established the brand in the modern tactical knife scene. On his 100th birthday, we wish to pay tribute to Col. Rex Applegate for his contributions to Boker by issuing a specially limited anniversary edition, the Applegate Century series. Selected materials and steel, including a selection of special model version make the Applegate Century series into a genuine treat for all friends of exclusive tactical knives. The Applegate 5.5 is a modern rendition of the classic Applegate design. This gap was bridged in collaboration with Bill Harsey, thus forming the link between the original model and a modern tactical knife with an up-to-date vibe. The modified blade geometry of the five-and-a-half inch blade offers greater utility for cutting chores, without limiting the underlying functionality. We selected American-made 154CM steel for the blade, an uncompromising high-performance steel that also represents a tribute to the American roots of the design. The blade and pommel are polished to a high sheen, giving the Applegate 5.5 Century radiance in the true sense of the word. The nickel-silver Applegate anniversary emblem is embedded in the rosewood scale, while the blade features custom anniversary lettering. Shipped with premium leather sheath and custom anniversary packaging. Limited to 199 pieces. (Produced in two strictly limited series at 199 copies each, one for Europe, and one for the USA).

Rex Applegate was born in 1914 in Oregon, where he was taught to hunt and shoot in his youngest years. After graduating from the University, he joined the US Army in 1940. Shortly before the beginning of the war he became a member of the OSS, the Office of Strategic Services of the United States Department of War. The tasks of the OSS included the operational information acquisition, disinformation, psychological warfare, partisan support, asymmetrical warfare, sabotage and counterintelligence. Col. Rex Applegate trained Allied Special Forces in close combat and founded the "School for Spies and Assassins" in today's Camp David. He coordinated secret operations throughout Europe and was employed to guard President Franklin D. Roosevelt. After the Second World War, he continued to work as a consultant and instructor, was author of several books about close quarter combat and started developing and improving combat knives.
