Official 31-Day SKELETOOL* Challenge!
« on: November 04, 2014, 05:30:43 PM »

Should you dare to enter, you agree to spend the entire December of 2014 equipping with a stylish Skeletool* as your SOLE Multi-Tool / Knife and nothing more.
So put away your SAK, folder and keychain tools, etc for hibernation.

* Any one MT from the Skeletool family would be accepted, that include : MUT, Skeletool, Freestyle, Style CS/PS & Style.
You should not switch tool between above selection during the challenge, so choose wisely before the challenge began.

A) You can bring as many exchangeable bits as you like / need.
B) Hacked Skeletool are welcome to enter.
Here is an excellent write up on Skeletool Faimly by Chako.

To be eligible for the giveaway (relying on the honor system):

1) This challenge runs from December 1st through December 31st. You must participate all 31 days.

2) You must have posts count of 31 or more by December 31st, 2014.

3) Reply to this thread with a photo of your Skeletool you will be participating the challenge with, you are encouraged to express (praise or criticize) your experience with the Skeletool during the challenge.

4) If you need a dedicated tool for a task, please do so. No one is asking you to cut down a tree or trim your finger nails with a Skeletool…  Please use common sense. If you gave up and going back to a bigger multi-tool, shout out, no one will laugh at you.

5) Obey your local laws, regulations and work place, school polices, etc.

6) Be safe and be prepared.

Should you survive and completed the challenge, you get a shot at winning the new in box Super Tool 300 + Micra combo pack.
One of the admins will draw a winner on January 1st, 2015.

I would enter this, but traded off my Skeletools a while back. Should be a interesting thread though. Sweet idea Kampfer.  :tu:

Great idea and thanks for doing the GAW  :tu:

unfortunately, much as I love the Skeletool I can't manage with it on a day to day basis at work and I can't really carry it off work either   :(

I don't like either the ST or the Micra enough to be worth the aggravation, but thanks for the opportunity and best of luck, guys...

I'm definitely in! my Skeletool CX was my primary EDC for 3-4 years before I got into modding. :D here's a pic of my trusty CX after it saved my bacon one day while riding my bike to work.



very generous of you, Kampfer... thanks for the chance! :cheers:

I understand, I too normally team up with a hacked Micra to makeup for what Skeletool doesn't have.

Hmm...I don't have a skeletool, so I wonder if I can justify buying one for this  :think:

I was all like "I don't know if I want to buy a Skeletool for the challenge" in Kampfers do you want a challenge thread.

Really though who am I kidding. I am SO in.  :tu:

One caveat though. If the slow mail system here does not deliver my Skelly in time can I go with no tool till it shows and still be in? That really hurt my heart to type by the way.

Nice!

Will have to wait until the PX opens tomorrow to order it.

Stupid bank decided that since I was buying stuff from Afghanistan my debt card must have been hacked. Which is kinda stupid since it is a bank that serves the armed forces almost exclusively.

No Skeletool or MUT here so I won't be taking part.

Given that December is wood and hay month I would only want to do the challenge with the MUT.

Hats off to Kampfer though for a great idea and prize.

Kampfer... thanks for the chance and the Giveaway is very generous:tu:
I`ve ordered a Skeletool CX yesterday morning because of this Thread: http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,53792.0.html :D

Normaly I EDC a Surge daily but I think this Challenge is a change to see if the Skeletool is tough enough for my job :)

So, if I can join I would be happy :)

So far we have:
01-Kampfer, Skeletool X
02-Powernoodle, Skeletool
03-Breezy12, Skeletool CX
04-HarleyXJGuy, Skeletool
05-GPS12, SKeletool CX

I have reserved the right to sweeten the deal a bit if we have more challengers.
For every 20 challengers enter, I will throw in another combo pack as prize.
That mean each of you will at least 5% chance to win.

I have a Skeletool and used it for months as my only knife/tool, but it has been delegated to light carry only these days. I like to switch between knives/tools to much to enter any monthly challenge - probably exactly why it is called a challenge.  :facepalm:
To all entrants: enjoy it!
(and be careful for the Skeletool pinch - don't say I did not warn you) :salute:

Didn't I win this by default a number of years ago?  And still have the record today? :whistle:

I won't enter right now, as I need to think about this.  :think:  If I do though, it'll be with my MUT.

The Skeletool and I certainly didn't get along.  I traded it within two weeks.  :(

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D
