Moon machete.

Neil Armstrong Museum

The museum has been renovated -- it no longer deals with the history of flight from the Wright Brothers on, but focuses only on the Cold War, with "Armstrong's life woven in." They have added a space shuttle simulator and a trophy room. Alas, I discovered the "moon machete" was used only in training, and did not accompany Neil to the moon.
