In order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of landing on the moon, Gillette is taking a moment to honor the moment in a very big way.

The men’s grooming brand unveiled its new Apollo Collection by RazorMaker 3D printer razor, which was inspired by the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Featuring an exclusive moonscape handle design that’s adorned with the historically inspired “one small step,” boot imprint on the front, the limited-edition collection also features the iconic and period-accurate NASA “meatball” insignia on the back.

In addition, the collection comes full circle as Gillette was there during man’s first trip to the moon, the astronauts of Apollo 11 carried personal hygiene kits that contained its Techmatic razor, the company said.

Each Razor Maker handle is printed at the company’s Boston headquarters using stereolithography printed technology from Formlabs.

Available exclusively on Gillette’s website, the razor retails for $55.
