Center Drive 30 day challenge
« on: October 29, 2017, 04:18:21 AM »
Hey everyone, just got the go ahead to start a new challenge for the Center Drive. I'll need at least five more people to join in, and we can all do the challenge as a group. I'm planning to start Monday November 6, but I can bump it back if any of you are waiting on one of the new BO models, or are in the middle of a challenge already. Hope to see you guys at the starting line :cheers: :tu:

Would be keen to join in however I don't have a Center Drive nor can I afford one right now.
So I'll be watching from the sidelines.
If anyone is feeling really generous - holler.

No prob Guys. Hopefully this challenge may clear up any doubts or questions you may have regarding whether the CD is worth having or not. I know it had some quality issues in the beginning, and hopefully this will change any doubts about it's ability. I've used mine a lot on the job for many different tasks, and it has become my go to MT for work :like: :like:. Hope to see you guys in the club soon :D  :cheers:

I've been really sucking on challenges, but I want to give my new CD a good workout.  It will be my primary EDC for a good while as I want to get a good feel for it. 

I'd like to be apart of this, but I'm not sure if I'd be up to contributing as much as required. :(

I usually Flip between my Diesel and Centerdrive..Right Now the Centerdrive is residing in my Go Bag Does this Thirty Day Challenge mean No Other Multi or Knife on One's Person?

I don't know what the rules are going to be for this challenge specifically, but I'd like to make it be the CD paired with either a TRAD folder or a SAK, as that's been my combo of choice for some time know

During the challenge I'm going to carry a micra as well so I have some decent scissors. I'm carrying the CD today and needed scissors earlier that it doesn't have, so had to go search for some.

That's fine man. I'm planning on carrying a SAK or a TRAD during the challenge  myself, just as long as the CD is the only mt you carry during the challenge

Mines getting a sharpen and a good cleaning this weekend, it's a bit blunt and gritty from working in the garden with it.

Are we going normal challenge rules? We each post a picture a day for 30 days with each day labelled. Also shall we all use this thread as well to make it easier for a mod to judge that we all completed it. It's worked well in the last few I've joined in on.

That sounds good to me Kev. The only thing I'm doing different is that we are going to be allowed to carry one other knife during the day. So if you want to carry just the CD, or pair it with a SAK, TRAD, or even a micro tool, it's legal for this challenge :D :multi:

I'm pairing it with a Leatherman Micra so I have scissors. The CD should cover everything else I think, especially now I have the blade razor sharp again.

Kevs Day 1

Nice easy start to the challenge. I'm on a training course for the next 3 days so it'll probably be glamour shots for the first few days.

My carry for the 30 day challenge.

Gerber CD, Leatherman Micra so I have scissors, Olight i3E EOS, Fisher bullet space pen, Vic mini driver, and 1/4" drive bits. I've swapped out the No.2 PZ & PH for better quality, and also the imperial hex for metric.

Good luck everyone  :tu:

It's just the standard bullet fisher space pen. http://www.fisherspacepen.co.uk/products.php?Cateogry=2

It's lived in my little pouch for over a year now and has always worked every time I've needed it. It's been great.  I don't like the medium tipped refill it comes with so I swapped mine out for the fine tip and gave the medium away to a member on here.
