WOW! Love that Boker Desert Fairbairn/Applegate! Is that one next to the SPOT something from CRKT?
Anyway, yes, you have a valid point here also. However, the Applegate you have shown I have read for awhile now being beaten and used to "death". Like the Kabar, it has survived wars. Ontario Knives' Pilot knives and Camillus' USMC FB's have done the same, and at a great price point. (Well, that Boker is a pretty big chunk o' change!) Anyway, the sole survivor for is the Moran. Have not handled one, but I have read great feedback on this knife since it came out in the late 90's...so it's still surviving. People, lots of people are USING the Moran. Sporadic stories of the SPOT, Temperance, Ronin, are here and there but I believe not enough to keep them "alive". Not enough people USE their Lum Tanto, Ronin, Perrin...
I think if you ask, "Who uses their Temperance in the field?" and then "Who uses their Kabar, BRKT, Ontario, Busse etc..." well, you know what I mean...I just don't know how to explain it.
Great point, and great knives BTW! Thanks for the pics!
