These Ultra-Limited Knives Honor 50 Years Of NASA’s Apollo Program

Jul 9, 2019

At its peak, NASA’s Apollo program employed a whopping 400,000 people. And while so many of those folks are partially responsible for putting humans on the moon, only 12 people ever actually put boots on the lunar surface. To celebrate those American heroes, as well as 50 years of the Apollo Program itself, Cut Throat Knives and WRKMN have collaborated on an ultra-limited run of their Moon Landing Knives.

Limited to just 12 pairs, these knife sets are comprised of an 8-inch, harpoon-tipped, ceramic-coated 52100 high-carbon steel chef knife and a smaller, everyday carry-friendly friction folder with a cerakote-finished AEBL steel blade. While their purposes are vastly different, they do share some features in common — including resin handles embedded with imagery taken from actual scans of the lunar surface. The chef knife also features special engraving tributing astronauts Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Ed White, and Roger B. Chaffee — the three men who lost their lives aboard the first crewed Apollo mission. Set for a July 20th release, these ultra-limited knives will sell for $770 and $350, respectively.

Purchase: $350+
