Description

U2aq is the new 2020 U2 collectible version with the Aquarius constellation laser engraved on the blade. Having sold thousands and thousands pieces of the U2, we understand that this lightweight, extremely sharp cutting tool is among our most appreciated knives. Being the first folding knife in the world to offer a blade in laminate powder steel, it has really been proven to work very well whenever a cutting quality is required. We intend to offer a limited edition of U2 folding knives featuring well known constellations. In 2012 we started with Cassiopeia, 2013 U2 Gemini, 2014 U2 Orion, 2015 U2 Scorpio, 2016 U2 Leo, in 2017 it was the Taurus constellation, in 2018 it was the Ursa Minor constellation, during 2019 it was the Pegasus constellation and now, during 2020, we are presenting the U2aq Aquarius constellation – be sure to get your sample! Divers, swimmers, boat people, fishermen, everyone with a hobby or work related to water, should consider buying a sample of this cute folding knife.

Aquarius constellation is located in the southern hemisphere. The constellation’s name means “the water-bearer” (or cup-bearer) in Latin and its symbol is two waves, representing water. Aquarius is found in the region of the sky which is sometimes referred to as the Sea. Aquarius was catalogued by Greek astronoms 1800 years ago. Aquarius, also named Ganymede, is known as the most beautiful of mortals, and in one version of the myths, Zeus falls in love with this good looking young man and snatch him in the form of an eagle to serve as cup-bearer to the gods in Olympus.

Aquarius contains the famous supergiant star Sadalsuud (Beta Aquarii). Aquarius is the 10th largest constellation in the sky. It is located in the fourth quadrant of the southern hemisphere.

Those of you who were youngsters during the 1960s and became part of the revolutionary counterculture might remember the Beatles, the Civil Rights Movement, experimentation with psychoactive drugs like LSD, the Flower Power Movement and much more. Maybe you danced to the monster hit Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In (from the musical Hair) with the Fifth Dimension in 1968?

Our nearest star is our own sun, maybe you haven’t thought of that? When the light from the sun reaches us it has been on the road for eight minutes. So, when looking at the sun you’re looking eight minutes back in time.
