Official MTO 30 Day Modded May SAK Challenge!
« on: April 27, 2017, 11:57:46 AM »
Well forumites we have a Modded May SAK challenge here for you viewing pleasure :salute:

Rules of the challenge

Rules: start a new thread and post a photo of the modified sak (scale swap not included) for thirty (30) consecutive days.
Where: swiss army knights forum or the mod squad.
Why: because we all do
Rules for what is considered a mod

Keyring removal: yes (but only just, and make sure your conscience is ok with claiming it as a mod ;)).
Non-standard grinds, can opener to fine driver mods, sharpened cap lifter to make a wire stripper: yes
Adding a lanyard: no.
Anything you've put together yourself: yes.
Anything built to your spec by someone else: yes.
Limited run production models (eg Yeoman MS): no

To enter just put your name on the list and a photo of you Modded SAK  :like:

I would love to do this but will be gone without Internet access for the last 5 days of May and I don't even have my SAK together yet :facepalm:

I will try and do this challenge later though as it is a very awesome challenge  :like: :like:

Also this challenge will begin May first and run the whole month :tu: If you don't know if your SAK will qualify or not then just post a pic of it and ask here :cheers: We will then let you know if it qualifies :tu:

I might be able to join, though my photo taking opportunities are limited now.  One Q: pick a SAK and stick with it for the month or can we switch between mods?

I will leave that up to the rest of you as I only would only have one mod anyways ::) :D

It might be more fun to stick with one and see if what the person put together or had put together suited them or not :shrug:

For the official may challenge, post in a combined thread or in individual threads?

1 - peeps like one big thread over lots of individual ones
2 - please day number your pics
3 - I vote for one mod, switching is less challenge more every day rotation

I may join with my modded jalox...

Will this be like the minimal challenge where participants only get to carry a single multi tool? I do have a minichamp and style ps on my keychain...

If I got the rules right then my spartan with removed keyring nub and grinded down can opener counts? But my minimalist challenge is going several days in to may, can I have two challenges in the same time?

I will allow plier based tool but if your SAK has the tool that you need to use then you must use it and try to use the mod exclusively if you can but some tasks require larger pliers :tu:

Also going by previous answers to 30 day challenge questions. I think you can be in only 1 challenge at a time of this type :salute: but if you want to join in at the end of the minimal challenge then just keep up with yours days and join in then :salute:

I can't decide what to use for the month.  Do I go for a 91mm mod that will contain pretty much everything that I might need (pliers, phillips, openers, T+T, small blade, scissors, etc.) but is a bit bulky or should I use a slimmer but much more minimal alox knife that I know will cover my day to day work stuff but will need extra tools at the weekends?

Alox is nice :dd: but we carry SAKs and MTs to make life easier so by that I would carry the bigger bulkier one :whistle: :D

Who all do we have in this challenge so far :think:

I think I am your polar opposite.  You seem to continually use your mod and I have no mod.  :)

I will enjoy watching from the sidelines.
