The set includes the Certificate of Authenticity signed by Col. Rex Applegate, Jim Wehrs (General Manager of Gerber Legendary Blades) and Ernst Felix (President of Boker Solingen), a 8"X10" photograph of Col. Rex Applegate signed by him and ready for framing.

The set is mint, new-in-the-box, with all original papers, content and packing material. A unique and beautiful set made back in 1997 when Applegate was still alive. He died in 1998 at the age of 84. The set comes with everything as from the factory.                    #587/3000 

Set #587/3000

It is very unusual for two knife manufacturers, in two different countries to cooperate and come together to make a Commemorative Set but Gerber and Boker did back in 1997. The Gerber first came out in 1996 and the Boker came out about the same time.
