Very nice Captain.....I think some of that NASA Brown would also be very "fitting".

I have posted this one in a few places, but maybe not here. This is one of my Astros so far. I remain convinced that there is somewhere a space-flown sheath besides the "slot" in the very early Mercury survival kits. I do not believe that the leather sheath would ever have been flown due to flammability issues. I have a very good selection of period MILSPEC aerospace fabrics and webbing, but need a starting point. This image does not show the screwdriver.

Yes, I have a Bren Ten. It slices and dices nicely.
Don't ask: NEVER will be for sale or trade. It is my Holy Grail.

I came across the information by accident when looking for a model 17.

Quote:
This is Slayton's Randall knife on display at the Astronaut Hall of Fame.


Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is located in Central Florida, just one small step from Orlando and Daytona Beach.

Many of you live in Florida.
How about to go out there and do some quality photos for the forum? smile
Unless, of course, it's not burdensome.

I am currently working on the Kennedy Space Center project and that knife is one of the objects I got to handle. It is truly beautiful. If you'd like, i can get some pictures once it has been installed.

My new Model 17. It has a nickel silver hilt with a carbon blade. Riveted Johnson Sheath. Interestingly the original owner not only had their name etched but also had the exact time and date Neil Armstrong first stepped on the Moon. Question, does anyone know when the RMK shop stop using stainless hilts and started using nickel silver on the Astro?

I'm guessing this knife was made around 1975?
