Alan Shepard's survival knife aboard Mercury Freedom 7

Post by koimaster » January 30th 2018, 9:33am

Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. was the first American to be in space in 1961. He was also known as the first lunar golf player (his bullets stayed there), as well as the one who took three rosaries to the moon. He will keep one for him, the 2nd was given to Pope Paul VI while the 3rd is secretly kept in the abbey of Mont Saint Michel. Of all these objects of space, none will be accessible to the common people that we are. All? Except one. Here is a hero item that you can easily acquire for a handful of dollars and whose state of services gives it a legitimacy worthy of being placed next to your favorite Speedmaster. Notice to all the Geeks of the Speedmaster, we will talk about the survival knife "Camillus Demo knife" known also as the first knife (American) to have been in space ...

Shepard’s launch pad prayer, “Please, dear God, don't let me fuck up” is one I have uttered many a time caring for patients in ICU.

No chance, thats his EDC.



As a matter of fact, Conjurer's table leg has become such a forum icon that I suggest we adopt a watch rating system based on cabriole table legs up the bung - 1 through 5 with 5 being the worst. For instance - MB&F would get at the very least a 4. The mighty Hydromax? The full five cabrioles (with a Chippendale chair spindle thrown in for good measure).
