535. Astronaut (Grand Prix) – VSAKCS-2006

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 wonderful 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 model, but sometimes… not. Every knife was produced in small quantities and has a special emblem on scales.

Exceptionally long introduction, sorry. Let’s look at the “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 the logo of the Shuttle inlaid on its scales.

P.S. Some announce: several future posts will be related to the knives from the same series – VSAKCS!
