At the beginning of this post I would like to say «Thank you!» to one good fellow, without his help probably I never didn’t find this knife (and several others by the way).
Jason, thanks! 🙂
A long time ago
in a galaxy far far away when I just started my journey to the wonderfull world of SAKs, I’ve heard a legend about some group of collectors (maybe better call them «Secret orden»?) — Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Collectors Society, or VSAKCS. Every year, starting from 2000, this society released a new anniversary knife specially for members of this group. Sometimes these knives were a regular models, but sometimes… not. Every knife was produced in small quanities and has a special emblem on scales.
Very long introduction, sorry. Lets look at «Astronaut» model which was released for VSAKCS in 2006. First thing, that we can see — it’s not an original «Astronaut» model. Technically — it’s a Grand Prix model, with inlaid logo of Shuttle on its scales.
P.S. Some announce: several future posts will be related to the knives from the same series — VSAKCS!
