We've had Man on the Moon, Pug on the Moon scales. Now how about we celebrate the 50th Anniv. of  Apollo 11 with
Astrocat SAK scales. He is a member of the National Space Cat Administration.

Both SKS LE SAKs I ordered came today. Quite lovely knives for sure. Not too sure the finishing would hold up well in pocket, but I've got plenty of user SAKs, so these babies are Shelf Astronauts.  :D

The second the countdown was over it looked like a million people had hit refresh on their page. Site was down intermittently for more than 3 hours. Impossible to go through the steps to pay for the knife.
Their IT guys must've been thanking the marketing department for creating this situation on a Saturday night.

:iagree:

And even though the knife does look good and the price is ok-ish for a SE, I feel as if they could have done much more for this release.

A Black Ice Master Craftsman with these scales would have sold out in the same time for 4x the price me thinks.

Buy now or regret later

I agree.  The Tinker?  I would have thought the Japanese market Master Craftsman would have been the one, since it has the NASA connection.  Either way, a beautiful knife and congratulations to everyone that got one!

Well... I got 3... But I can say the same about a few family members who are not very much into SAKs :D

I must say I don't understand why they put a 3 per person limit for 1969 pieces when they put a 1 per person limit for 6000 pieces...

I watched the timer time out, and then the site crashing. Was curious about this model and maybe ordering one or two.

Don’t mean to speak ill of Victorinox but this knife is nothing really special. Why a tinker? I think they should have done something with the Master Craftsman/Astronaut tool configuration and an inlaid Apollo Lunar Module, something like that.

What they produced now with the printed scales looks cheap.

Definitely not worthy of all the fuzz with the countdown clock revealing if you ask me  :dunno:


By the way I would be surprised if the site crashed because of massive ordering of this knife. 2000 people ordering a knife should not crash a big website like victorinox.com and I don’t expect millions of people were looking at it, the market for special edition SAKs is not that big I think. When I woke up this morning they were not yet sold out, I could still place them in the virtual shopping basket. I just couldn’t bring myself to ordering one..

But of course to those who did get one, and are happy with how it looks: congrats!  :cheers:

Don’t let my negative opinion ruin your fun! I simply had other expectations about this SAK  :)

Glennfiddich1983,

Which SAK are you talking about?
This one?
https://www.swissarmy.com/us/en/Products/Swiss-Army-Knives/Medium-Pocket-Knives/Tinker-Man-on-the-Moon-Special-Edition-2019/p/1.4603.3PL19


The Swiss Knife Shop version was good enough for me at $28(or whatever it was). But, that said, I am definitely not a serious Vic collector and probably wouldn't feel right if I had one, since there are so many dedicated Vic collectors who put their awl into the hobby.

This morning the US site still had it in stock.
The mothership, however, ran out.

I just couldn't help myself. I ordered the 1969 LE from Vic for $99 after tax just now. :facepalm:

Saved $341 by not buying from that "generous and kind" eBay seller.  :whistle:

It was calling to me all morning. I waited long enough for the serious collectors to get their orders in I think. :ahhh

 :woohoo:
Will it be as special as the MT.o Pioneer X? Don't know yet. :)

It does seem a bit odd yes, however..congrats with your purchases, hope you get nice numbers  :cheers:

At least we'll never have to pay a ridiculous markup to get one, which has already started looking at the listing FB posted.  :cheers:

And if you ordered and don’t like it you’ll probably be able to sell it with some profit  :P
