111mm SAK 30 Day Challenge - open to all Feb 1 20252

111mm SAK 30 Day Challenge - open to all Feb 1
« on: January 30, 2018, 06:07:06 PM »
As it has been a while since the last 111mm SAK Challenge, and because I have a new Work Champ arriving tomorrow, I'll be starting a 30 Day 111mm SAK Challenge beginning Thursday February 1.

Anyone is welcomed to join in the Challenge.  Or not.   :pok:  Carry and use your 111mm SAK for 30 days, either solo or in addition to your normal EDC gear.  Switch between 111mm SAKs as often as you like.  And post a daily pic. I know this is short notice, but that's how life works.   :cheers:

So join in on February 1, or watch me suffer by myself.  Good times either way.  Or start later in the month or whenever it works for you.   Maybe include in each post that you are at day 1/30 or 2/30, etc. to help keep track of things.


A 111mm SAK 30 Day Challenge Badge will be awarded to any participant who completes the Challenge.  Nothing gets you a hot babe like a new Challenge Badge.

And as a special bonus, win a big box of nothing - with free international delivery - if you come up with a Challenge motto like One eleven is almost Heaven or No, honey, that's just my Outrider.

I'll have to start a few days late because of the 30 Day SAK Carry Challenge i'm on now, but if that's not a problem, count me in!

They say Sean Connery was a total loser until he did the 111mm challenge. Me, I'd do it again and double my charisma but I am afraid that by doing so I may cause a meltdown on the Multitool mainframe. As with the arrival of the year 2000, the boffins who invented computing never foresaw the possibility of someone doing two 111mm challenges. I'd love to do it again, but for the sake of humanity I'll have to restrain myself and cheer from the sidelines.

My only 111mm SAK is the fan-favorite "Victorinox Cheese Sword"...  :think:
My photos would be focussed on daily instances of cutting cheese. Not a topic for the faint of heart.
.... very tempting...

All I know is that I don't know anything - but I can't prove it!

I'm editing post #1 to allow for each individual to set his own start and finish date.

After discussing with powernoodle, let's pump up the incentive for participating in and completing this challenge.

Obviously the unparalleled experience and merit badge is the prime motivation for completing this challenge. I've had a 111mm challenge on my mind for a while now, so I jumped right on this one whe powernoodle suggested it. But to coax a few extra participants to do (or re-do) this one, let's add a give-away.

Rules:

1. Complete the challenge in the standard manner (carry & use 111m SAK daily for 30-days, posting pictures and stories of said 111mm(s) for those 30 fun-filled days.)
2. All those completing the challenge by Tax Day (17 April in the USA this year) will be entered for a random drawing to win a Mauser GAK.
3. I'll draw the name of the random winner on Tax Day. That might take the sting out of that day for one lucky winner.

17 April was chosen so that guys doing other challenges could complete those challenges and jump in on this one. And it gives those rare and inexplicable individuals who don't already have a 111mm SAK a chance to get one and complete the challenge.

Prize:

This is a Mauser branded Victorinox 108mm GAK-type knife. I bought it new in 1986 or 1987 and it has seen some use, but is still in nice condition (a bit of a mystery how that's possible).  I'll cover shipping.



You can see that there is some wear on the blade etching Oberndorf GmbH), so this ain't mint, it was used. It does still have the saw guard, however.  :D




But you were probably going to do the challenge just for the fun anyway, right?

Wow! That Mauser is so awesome I might have to risk crashing the Multitool supercomputer after all. If this causes power outages, tidal waves and zombie apocalypses throughout the world, I want it to be recorded that it was Nix's fault for putting temptation in my way.

All part of my master-scheme to crash the 'net.

Wish I had 30 different 111mm... I wanna keep my "different SAK every day" streak going.

If you can make an exception and accept "any 100mm or more" I could join in I think.

That decision would lie with powernoodle or one of the mods. Definitely above my pay-grade.

Of course to finish by 17 Apr 18 and qualify for the Mauser drawing you only need to start the challenge by 16 Feb.   :pok:

I wonder if there are genuine SAK hoarders in the world....
Like this except with Spartans instead of beer tins.
You don't want to end up like that, Syem!

I'll wait for his verdict... and go count if I actually have enough :D If I don't and I'm very close I might get a few more but otherwise I wont...

I saw a piece on the Vic website about a chinese collector with about 2000 of them. I'm still far from that.. although my labeling convention could currently accommodate 10'000 Wengers and 10'000 Victorinox/Elsener. Doubt I'll ever reach that :D And lately I've been slowing down on the number of purchases... going for quality rather than quantity.

My personal motto is you can't fail if you don't try.  Or something like that.

You can do whatever you want.  Though the mods may not grant a 111mm Badge.
