483. Master Craftsman

Technically it’s the same model as Ranger with corkscrew replaced by Phillips screwdriver, but Master Craftsman is much more rare knife.

As probably you know, Master Craftsman has several variations related to the Space program – Astronaut / Shuttle (Space Shuttle) models. All these models had inlaid logo of Space Shuttle on top scale.

My knife is an old one – it has old-style small blade, squared Phillips on the back and there are no hook / chisel / fine screwdriver at all.
