From its inception in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was devoted to research, educating and enhancing life here on earth. NASA has impacted the lives of millions, not just by providing research about space, but also sharing their pioneering inventions in which we use and see in our everyday lives. NASA has often reached out to di erent organizations during projects to help create and invent custom-made tools for unique tasks and environments. Case is extremely honored to have been a part of NASA’s history. When military knives did not meet NASA’s criteria, the organization commissioned Case to create a knife to their exact speci cations that would equip every manned US space ight of the Gemini and Apollo missions. This Astronaut Knife was lightweight with a sharp cutting edge and saw teeth on the back side. The knife’s blunt base of the blade had the abilities to pry and gather specimens (such as moon rocks) from the Celestial terrains. The handle was made of polypropylene, the lightest known plastic at the time. This material was able to withstand an impact similar to being struck by a forty- ve caliber bullet without shattering it. Another vital component of this synthetic material was that it did not emit any fumes, which was necessary in trying to ensure the purity of the air in the spacecraft. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon with the Case® Astronaut Knife on board. Case is commemorating this stride in NASA history with a reproduction of the M-1 that was on every manned spacecraft during the Gemini and Apollo missions. Case has always stood by and supported organizations that go above and beyond. NASA fueled our imagination and our beliefs that there will always be new inventions, new places and new discoveries for man to uncover. Made in the USA.
