Man on the Moon LE
« on: July 06, 2019, 05:34:03 PM »
So... Anyone has any pics? Any info? Size? Tool config? Scales? Packaging?

Victorinox just posted a teaser video on FB but the SAK they used in the animation looked like a plain Spartan.

I'm honestly surprised they didn't use the Japanese market Master Craftsman.  I'll take the Tinker though... I wonder how painful the price will be?

I confess I'm uninspired by this.  I wish they had brought back the Apollo astronaut inlay.

And on black scales...

  :iagree: That is strange.  Not sure where black scales came into it. :dunno:

Thanks. Apparently there were more pics and vids posted in some of the FB groups.
Looks like the knife has an image of the lunar module on the back. Nice!

I'm a huge Space Race fan, so this is definitely on my wish list (providing the price clears thru my approving authority :facepalm:).

I've got one on order from the Swiss Knife Shop. They are lovely knives (Astronaut space suit scales) with "Earth rise" on reverse.. Hope it arrives this week sometime.  The Tinker is my EDC, so I'm happy with the Moon landing Tinker. Also I'm an Apollo 11 collector, so this is great. Here is their link ;

Although quite cool, I think that's a different knife isn't it?  That one looks like Swiss Knife Shop's own commemorative SAK to celebrate the same occasion.

I don't know of any others (don't do FB). I'm quite happy with Swissknifeshop's version. Beside, I really dislike black bladed knives of any kind.

I  received my Man on the Moon Tinker from the Swiss Knife Shop yesterday. A standard Tinker with the scales as linked to above. Very nicely done colored scales. I'm very pleased with it; of course I'm an Apollo 11 collector. I do wish they had included something about it being the 50th anniversary of  the moon landing. I guess my string tag will have to do for that. Overall a nice piece -glad I got it.

Thank you for the link, Rich! :salute:

I do not have a Tinker in the collection(have no idea why), so $28 seemed like a great price on one with those awesome scales. :)

That's about £105 UK, probably plus costs & tax - maybe £150?
Still too steep for a tight-wad like me.

No space pugs for me. Although the SKS has a Man on the Moon Classic that I might get. Not really fond of Classics, but do have a couple in my meager collection. I might consider a space cat.  I'm really happy with the Man on Moon Tinker.

No space pugs? :pok:
J/K of course.

I'm not a big classic guy either, but having a pug makes the space pugs sentimental(well. more memory inducing I guess) in a way. My last one who was with me for 15.5 years was a fawn pug who looked like the one in scale art.

Space cat sounds cool too.  :like:
