Variations

  1. In 1988 Victorinox offered a special edition Rucksack in the German market recognizing the GSG9 (Grenzschutzgruppe 9), a special German Border Police Group. This knife had green Nylon scales with a special emblem.
  2. The GSG9 knife was not the official issue knife for the German Border Police. The official knife was the BGS, a variation which replaced the corkscrew with a Phillips screwdriver, had green nylon scales with a different emblem, and ‘BUND‘ laser etched on the main blade.
  3. In some markets the Rucksack was available with a 3/4 serrated blade.
  4. There is a Swiss market model with special scales having several white crosses.

History
