Dear Collectors - here you have a very very unique and never seen

BÖKER Applegate Fairbairn Knife of the German Special Forces GSG9

I found that knife on Kassel/Germany  Hunt and Gun Exhibition.

Normally this knife was made from Damascus and has a wooden Handle. Unfortunatly this one is pretty diffrent ...

It is a "all black Version" , maybe it was made as a Prototype or a Lunch-Box Model.....i dont know.

In my personal opinion this Knife looks more spectacular than the Damascus made one. It has the all same original Böker Box, the Certification states about Damascus but this one isn´t featuring Damascus steel.This Knife looks absolutly matching to the real used GSG9 all black AF Knife that was in service for a short time. Maybe dedicated to the Pr´´e-Owners personal wish, this knife was made all balck and 100% matching the Original.

On the guard is the number which is also displayed in the braown Certification Document ....but i can only state again, its no Damascus Knife Model.

It is featuring a Kydex multifunction Sheath ....as you can see on my last picture ...thats exactly the knife from Service at GSG9 Operation Teams.

This knife is outszanding and spectacular in case of its specs.....you will never come accorss one like that !

About History :

GSG 9 is deployed in cases of hostage taking, kidnapping ,terrorism  and exortion . The group may also be used to secure locations, neutralize targets, track down fugitives and sometimes conduct  sniper operations. Furthermore, the group is very active in developing and testing methods and tactics for these missions. Finally, the group may provide advice to the different Länder, ministries and international allies. The group assists the Bundespolizei and other federal and local agencies on request. At the time of the 1977 Mogadishu mission, the Commander of the Israeli Border Police  Tzvi War described GSG 9 as "The best anti-terrorist group in the world."

Its first mission, which is still one of the most well-known and established the GSG 9's reputation as an elite unit, was “Operation Feuerzauber” (Operation Fire Magic). It was carried out in 1977 when Palestinian Terrorists hijacked the Landshut, a Lufthansa  plane on the way from Palma de Mallorca to Frankfurt, demanding that imprisoned members of the German Red Army Fraction terrorist group be freed. The aircraft was then flown to several destinations throughout the Middle East. During this time, the Lufthansa captain Jürgen Schumann was murdered by the leader of the hijackers in Aden.

Following a four-day odyssey the hijackers directed the Boing 737 to Mogadishu, Somalia, where they waited for the arrival of the Red Army Faction members after the German government had (falsely) signaled they would be released. In the night between October 17 and October 18, Somalian ranger units created a distraction, while members of the GSG 9, accompanied by two British  SAS  operatives as observers stormed the plane.

The operation lasted seven minutes and was successful: all hostages were rescued. Three hijackers died, the fourth was seriously injured. Only one GSG 9 member and one flight attendant were injured. The international counter-terrorism community applauded GSG 9 for the excellent and professional handling of the situation as assaults on planes are considered one of the most difficult scenarios a hostage rescue force could face. As an important support the SAS advisers provided flash bangs which was the first instance of this particular grenade being used in a operation. It is often used to temporarily disorient a person, giving a rescue force a small time window essential to attempt a forced entry against armed criminals. In this instance however the flashbangs were not used inside the aircraft, but thrown outside to provide a diversion at this critical stage.
