    Hi, mates,

    wanna show this used Bundeswehr combat knife, an BÖKER A-F BLACK, (Applegate/Fairbairn "Black Böker"),
    "KAMPFMESSER KSK".

    blade lenght: ca. 150 mm
    overall lenght: ca. 277 mm
    thickness of the blade: ca. 5 mm
    width of the blade: ca. 28 mm

    Such pattern combat knives were/are introduced in the Fernspählehrkompanie 200 (Remote Scouting Coy 200 / long-range reconnaissance Coy 200), and, the Kampfschwimmerkompanie, (Combat Swimmer Coy) of the Bundeswehr.
    As the only police unit it took over only the SEK (Spezialeinsatzkommando), special task force of the Police, of North Rhine-Westphalia.

    Versorgungsnummer (supply number) 1095-12-344-4838

    Private purchased knives also saw action in foreign countries, carried by soldiers of the Bundeswehr in different units, for example, in the KSK (Kommando Spezialkräfte).

    I've read that the military version guard, unlike the civilian model, does not have a serial number.

    The rubber strap for "locking" the handle of the knife in the sheath is marked with:
    BÖKER

    BLADE-TECH
    TACOMA.WA.

    Here´s a broken "Kampfmesser KSK", worn bei an Soldier of the Kommando Spezialkräfte actually.

    Two steel weights are incorporated into the handle to balance the knife.
    As far as I learned, the knife was introduced in August 1998 in the Bundeswehr.

    Nice knife, this is not the military version, but the civilian version, recognizable by the serial number.
