Designed for the Gemini and Apollo space programs, Case's Astronaut Knife is intended for use if the capsule comes down in an unexpected location. This commemorative edition is made in the USA to the same high specifications as the originals that traveled into space and reached the Moon itself. At 5col we usually focus on tools made for hard use. Although Case makes the Astronaut Knife in limited numbers for the collector market, it's also a completely viable tool in its own right. And its history makes it too cool for us to pass up.
Each knife is consecutively serialized. Case Cutlery's Astronaut Knife comes in a presentation box with Certificate of Authenticity.
Made from heavy gauge Tru-Sharp™ Stainless Steel with an As-Ground finish.
