Here is an absolute beauty, we have a vintage Randall Model 17 Astro. This knife was designed with the help of Major Gordon Cooper in the 1950’s for the Mercury astronauts to use while on the first manned space missions. In 1959, astronaut Gus Grissom carried his Randall Astro on a NASA mission in the Liberty Bell 7 capsule and despite spending 40 years at 15,000 feet underwater the knife was still serviceable after a good cleaning. Just goes to show Randall Made Knives are one of the best companies in the industry.

This knife features Randall’s famous German 440 stainless steel with black micarta handles. Randall knives have a lot of history behind them but this model has a lot more history than most do having ties with the NASA program, so don’t miss your chance to own a piece of cutlery and American history.
