    Description

    Buzz Aldrin: Albacete, Spain, Presentation Knife and Custom-Carved Box Originally from His Personal Collection. A large, wood-handled folding knife with a ratchet mechanism, blade length 6.5", overall length 13.25". Engraved on the blade is "Soy Del Sr. Aldrin" (I am Mr. Aldrin's) on one side and "Albacete" on the other. It is housed in an extremely decorative wooden book-style box, 8" x 9.5" x 3.5", with a leather-covered carved scene of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza on the top. Not surprisingly, this comes from Albacete which is located in the Castile-La Mancha area of Spain; Albacete is known for making some of the finest knives and daggers in Europe. Excellent condition.
