The fall of 2017 brought the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the Lufthansa plane, Landshut, which was hijacked by terrorists in Mogadishu. The liberation mission (Operation Feuerzauber) was executed by the still quite new GSG-9 unit, founded in 1972. This successful mission under the command of founder Ulrich K. Wegener firmly anchored the unit in the memory of the public. Especially in today's times, in which terror seems to be everywhere, one cannot pay enough tribute to a unit such as the GSG-9 for their tireless work against terrorism and serious crime. Thus we would like to honor the unit and its members with two special models of the A-F 4.5 and 5.5, for which the GSG-9 granted us their official approval to add the mission badge of the unit, the famous wings. Hardly any other knifemaker has influenced the field of tactical knives as much as William H. "Bill" Harsey, his designs have earned him an excellent reputation in the knife world. His modification of the legendary Boker Applegate-Fairbairn combines the knife used by many elite units with modern elements. In order to make the promotion more than just symbolic, Boker will donate € 5.00 from every unit sold to a charity of GSG-9's choice. These impressive commemoratives feature a finely satined blade and stainless steel handle. The wings of the GSG-9 are emblazoned on the blade. The handle is milled from rosewood and has a characteristic grooved profile for maximum grip. Delivery includes a high quality black leather scabbard. Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, and are individually numbered.
