 :climber: I agree Pablo!  This knife looks like a Classic on steroids but has a completely different feel.  It feels so solid, almost like it was cut from solid stock.

I was wanting to do some in-action shots, but my new NEC Terrain (I've had it since July) kept dismounting the SD card. I swapped SIMs, and it's back to my old Samsung Rugby 4 flip, a bulletproof, idiotproof phone I wish Samsung hadn't axed.

Day 2.

I have to peel some carrots, and I tried to use the serrated blade for scrapping them, instead the dedicated kitchen tool.

It works, but I prefer the linear cut that dedicated tool offer. Next time I will try with the blades.

Love those scales Mini!!  It's cold here in central Pennsylvania on Day 2, so I used the small blade to open a bag of wood pellets.  After that, we had a nice cuppa to take the chill off!

Busy morning for the Exec today of October 2

This ‘minimalist’ SAK sure does pack a lot of options  :climber:

Well done, Barry. Looks like you've got our first official entry!  :salute:

Fast Bill, the Ambassador is great, and it won't spoil. Jump on into this challenge!

Ok Nix, had a day in the office with my Ambassador. Can't say either of us broke a sweat with that with a little light nail filing. The Executive would've been even better for that.

Yes, I was amazed when I received my new one. My next question is, how can I get my older one back to that sharpness?

I love reading your posts. Everybody is doing great!

October 2nd

It's the second day nd I'm slowly forgetting about my Handyman.
...
Haha, no, I'm not  I had a couple of Holy smurfake! I've lost my SAK moments.
The Executive rides silently in my pocket.

Today I've mostly used the scissors.
I did a visual field test with a patient that had a lof of defects. I had to colour a lot of black. My black marker quickly stopped working, as did the one at work.
I used the Executive scissors to make a paper pen with wide nib and coloured the entire area with black stamp ink.


Executive scissors

I spend most of my day in the dark, next to another visual field sting machine. Itbwas pretty uneventful for the Exec.


Executive and Böker Cal .45 pen

After work we went for a drink and I cut the teabag foils.


Executive scissors and tea

The end of the day I also used the nailfile. It's very agressive, but leaves a very smooth result.
That's a wrap for day 2. Now to bed and tomorrow...

Thus far, the scissors snipped a bit of the tab that caught and broke on the lid of my 711 coffee this morning. Nothing more since this morning.

Day 2, with an early '70s Tonka Mighty Crane. It came with a clamshell bucket (shown to the left), but it's heavy and sharp, so for display purposes, I use a hook from an old battery powered plastic Tonka from the early '00s I had as a kid.

Day 2
I'm dabbling in making wood chips from perfectly good boards. Small blade worked very well.

You guys have more guts than I do. I hate to say it but we're in the first couple of days and there are already tasks posted that the Executive wasn't up to. I hope it gets easier as you all get adapted to the tools in this SAK. As for me, I'll just sit here and continue to watch as I cuddle my Swiss Champ and binge on popcorn.
Good luck, fellas!

Thanks. I am not a whittler, but would like to learn. I can say the small blade worked well for most cuts, but isn't a gouge. I never felt that I had to be gentle on the blade, but it is fairly sharp, which helps.

Impressive...
I'm about to finish up a challenge with the Leatherman Surge (I know BAD WORDS) and can't wait to get back to my faithful Swisstool.  I can't imagine only having an Executive.
Again I say
IMPRESSIVE!!
