OK, Capt. Chris--

Now, people in decades to come will be guessing and arguing "How many were made with such-and-such handle material."

You might have already published the numbers, but I don't recall seeing them.

Never published because I never kept track..."exactly". I do know that brown was the most common at (approx.) 45 made. Jade green (almost a blue) was 2nd at about 20-25. The G-3 (off-white) is the most rare at less than 20, probably 17 or 18 total. Here's a quick pic of some of the incredibly scientific disecting of this unique CW....!!!
Hope this helps, Capt. Chris

This was the plastic tote that I carried to the old RKS meeting, I think in 2007 or 2008?? It was the "1st cut", if you will. Although it appears to contain a lot of white, there were more brown insulator races than the other 2 colors. This was simply to show RKS members what was available at the time.
Hope this helps, Capt. Chris

Fortunately, I was able to deliver it to a gentleman who actually worked on the NASA project. He also secured a brown G-10 Through one of my members in the Florida Randall Knife Collector Club, which you too are a member.

Good luck on your search Sir!

Thanks Tattoo Bill!

The Blue insulation G-3 is the nicest synthetic knife material that I have ever seen. It is too bad, that they don't make it anymore. I see all kind of colors with different patterns, but none of them as nice as this one. Great idea to make knife handles from this stuff Captain. To those who own one, I would absolutely cherish it.

I recall when Capt. Chris announced this Mission Memorial knife at Blade, and I spoke up and said I would buy "Number 1."

I recall that Rhett would number knives sequentially, then draw randomly to give everybody an equal chance at lower numbers.

Then there are folks who have favorite numbers for such things, and ask for their own number--potentially complicating the sellers' bookkeeping and attempts at fairness to all.

The Captain's approach makes sense--everybody got "Number 1!"
