The boot knife is really interesting : asymmetric grind with one side being high hollow grind, and the other being "like the Combat II"

I have one, a small Gerber folder in AUS8 iirc. I don´t remember which box I put it in so it might take some time for me to find it.

Found it!

Nice little thing !
I got one too (second hand), but I can't know for sure if legit of fake ... The "real" small one being far behind its bigger brothers in term of build quality, I don't know if mine is a really badly built unit or a "good" knockoff  :facepalm: (but I think it's fake)

edit : here is the pic, it is at the very bottom... I even found out I had forgotten the Mini Covert FAST I happen to have too  :twak:

so, I have the following for now :
- BlackJack Applegate-Fairbairn Combat II
- Böker Applegate-Fairbairn Boot
- Gerber Covert Folder (ATS-34)
- Gerber Covert Folder (154CM)
- Gerber Mini Covert FAST (7Cr17MoV)
- Gerber(?) "Mini Covert"

Is it combat folder sized or cover folder sized ?
If that is the latter, I do have one and only thought it was a "covert folder" variation .
Looks like I have much more to learn about this line of products (not that I have another blackjack made A-F Combat incoming.. or do I?)
