I don't even think it was ever available in the Netherlands.

I like the SKS graphic better, but got the 1969 version. Use one, keep one, sell one.  Maybe that *bayer wants to recoup cost for all three with one sale?  ::) :facepalm:

I should put mine up for $299 BIN.  :whistle:  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Still available for the US...I wonder what the allocations were?

I read on Facebook that due tot their server troubles they somehow accidentally sold more knives than there where available. So even if you ordered one, there's a chance that it will be cancelled and refunded.

Thanks for the info, but I looked and didn't see that post. Admittedly I am not very active or savvy with facebook.  :ahhh
Do you happen to have a link to it?

They also still show in stock in the US, and I wouldn't expect a server issue to be left unchecked for such a large company going on two days. Hopefully we'll all get our MOTM LE we ordered. :ahhh

Their server failed to update quantities so they sold way more than were available. Logistics are still trying to sort this mess out... They probably love their IT at the moment... And their IT must love the marketing department.

I should have some but not as many as was planned... Still better than none though!

Yes, they do show in stock and they allow you to put it in your cart to purchase, but I see now that it says sold out where they talk about limited quantity of 1969.  :think:

I just called Victorinox customer support and the lady told me that my order is shipping and that she didn't know anything about orders getting cancelled in the US that were placed yesterday.
I had also ordered one for a friend and she(CS rep) said it is also shipping today.

The way they handled this is absolutely horrendous. They are on limited staff also because they're officially on holiday.

It’s mostly on the German facebook group as I see it

My only wish is that they would have put an astronaut on the scale, even if it was just a partial view of a helmet or something.

Did you order the Swiss Knife Shop exclusive version as well?

The SKS version looks more like a "Man on the Moon" graphic than Vic's. Though Vic's is still very nice looking.

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

Yep, the ones I ordered are going to be Shelf Astronauts too.  I ordered the Tinker (like you), and I ordered the Classic with the same scale.  I didn't opt for the pug...at least not yet.  Now, if it had a pitbull, that'd be hard to resist.

Imagine, they had 50 years of time to design a nice "Space/Apollo Program/Apollo 11 Commemorative" knife! But time was too short. I think Victorinox missed a big opportunity.

Slightly off topic, but related. Has anyone gotten the UPSP Moon stamps or envelopes yet?  I tried to order off the USPS website and it was a nightmare. You have to set up an account with USPS (a long process) and then set up a separate VISApay account (a real nightmare that would not work. I finally backtracted and cancelled out my order. I'll never even think about buying anything off the USPS site again.

I called my local PO today and the stamps and envelopes aren't available locally yet :-(
