I am sure you are aware of the Glock knife already, a military field knife that can be used as a bayonet as well (on the Austrian Steyr AUG for instance). Together with the GLOCK Entrenching tool they are a icons almost like the Glock pistols themselves.
This knife has been around for a while, since 1978 in fact. Therefore Glock has released a limited edition of 780 pieces called the “Glock Knife 78 Olive Plain Jubileum 40th Anniversary.”

The 40th Anniversary serialised Glock Knife is presented in a silver finish Glock Case.
A serialized certificate regarding just this knife is included, with Gaston Glock signature.
Normally a box like this hides a firearm. Except this time it doesn’t.
Inside you will find one of 780 Glock FM78 knives, together with a certificate.
I find no other conclusion that the limited number of 780 comes from 1978.

This is Limited Edition 679 of 780 of the Glock Knife 78 Olive Plain Jubileum 40:th Anniversary.

All pictures by the gunsmith and sportshooter couple JM Works, used with permission. I was only able to find the knife in this Swedish webstore. The price is 895 SEK, which rounds up to about 100 USD.

I have not seen this knife anywhere else, the computer says no when I search. The Swedish dealer (F&K Sport) say they have (had) 30 pieces which would represent about 4% of the global total.

That is quite a premium over the 42 USD I normally see for the FM78 knife, but for a collector this is probably not an issue.

You can find the normal Glock field knives here.
