Took care of some chores earlier, so now it's time to play. With the weather forecast to cool off a bit with a chance of some rain, I'm hoping the smoke will abate and the fishing pick up. So, I figured I'd make up a couple extra lures....

(Image removed from quote.)

The PX does a nice job with this. The cap lifter works to bend out the edges of the bottle cap and crease a fold. I use a kitchen towel under the cap so there is room to flex the cap and protect the point of the awl when drilling hole for the hook and swivel.

Ok, so you're thinking these look pretty bush-league. They are, but they're deadly. The asymmetric design makes them jerk and flutter like a wounded bait fish, and I think the rough edges create some turbulence in the water. Obviously you want to choose your beer and caps with an eye toward color and flash. Plus, they're free; so I have more money to spend on SAK's. (Image removed from quote.)
Neat idea!   :tu:

Thanks, guys!  :salute:

This challenge was a lot of fun.

Yes there were times when I wish I could slip a Tinker small into my pocket, but over all, it was a fairly easy challenge to do. At first the PX seemed a bit large, but with in a few days it magically 'shrank' to EDC size.  I'm completely impressed with the knife, it's design, it's functionality, and it's quality. It really is a great SAK (hey, and Alox climber, what's not to like?).

Thanks for the support and encouragement along the way. I hope some more people will give the Pioneer X challenge a shot!  :salute:

Its because of this challenge and other feedback here and outside that I decided to plan for and will soon get my own PX.


This has been a pleasant journey with excellent photos and notes  :salute: :tu: :like:

Same here. I picked up my PX after watching the start of this challenge. I loved my SI but felt like I needed a bit more. Add a nail file to the PX and I'd be in heaven!!
