EDC a different SAK every day for 30 days #4 - 65mm
« on: April 03, 2018, 11:18:36 PM »
Here's month 4 of my year of different SAK every day...
(month 1 [misc], month 2 [Alox84/85mm] and month 3 [Metal 74mm/Minimalist])

Starting Wednesday 4th of April, I'll be carrying a different 65mm knife every day. They will most likely all be Wengers.

If would really love if someone joined me this month too even though my hopes are not really high in this category  :angel:
Big thanks again (and congratulations!) to Borg and Thunderpants who joined me in completing a minimalist challenge for my month 3!

I'll keep counting the knives towards my year so 91 to 120 :ahhh

Again, I'll be following the same guidelines I set out in month #2 (copy-pasted below). Not planning any breaks for this month either...

Code: (Some ground rules for the challenges:) [Select]
- Carrying/using multiple SAKs simultaneously is ok but we're counting the days and not the knives.
 - Need to carry at least one "not carried in this challenge yet" knife every day. (if you're not doing the whole year with me, feel free to reset your list after each month)
 - Since this will go on for at least a whole year, breaks are allowed but only due to carry restrictions while travelling or because of hospitalization. Just pick up where you left off once you're back.
 - Exact duplicates are allowed but not twice in a row. (do not count as exact duplicates: variations in generations/tool evolution, scale & crest - type & shape & color, wear/damage, inlays/engravings and the likes. Basically, as long as we can tell them apart, it's ok to post them twice in a row). Posting a pic of the duplicates together before carrying them is strongly suggested.

Day 91

Wenger Esquire with what I assume to be nickel-plated brass scales with a Crossair logo. You can see the brass under the slightly worn plating on the left side of the first pic (and on the other identical yet a lot more worn knife on the last pic). Crossair used to be the 2nd airline company In Switzerland before they were absorbed by Swissair shortly before Swissair's untimely demise. I may remember this a bit wrong as I was still quite young when it happened.

I must make amends: I went back through month 1 and dug through my boxes to find and separate the first 30 knives as I knew I used at least 2 65mm knives and wanted to remove them from my pool for this month. As I was doing this I noticed 1 knife that I know I used in month 3. I'll therefore be going back to the month 3 thread and post a different 74mm metal knife tomorrow, as "day 61" because my first instance of day 61 cannot count. I'll be posting day 92 here on Friday. As a way to apologise I'll post a group pic of the first 30 knives in the topic of month 1. :D

That's a beautiful one to start with!

I don't want to know how you store all these treasures... I imagine an old shoe box isn't up to the job!

More like 12 of them :D none of them are shoeboxes... I'll have to find a better solution when I move later this year. For now I lack space so I have to juggle around with categorised boxes.

Day 96

Wenger Esquire in dark green with a rounded bottom shield crest and a Basel taxi company ad. Very unlucky phone number if we believe the chinese. Nothing on the back but light scuffing.

Victorinox Macao Esquire Switzerland's 700 years Jubilee.

Can't shake the feeling that this logo looks somewhat like part of an owl :D

Amazing collection, Syem!
Wasn't that small wooden one made by EKA of Sweden for Wenger? Or have I confused it with something else.

Love the owl!

As I understand it, the knife is Wenger and the scales are EKA. Comes in a Wenger box too...

Thanks :D

I could've called this topic Esquires only but I do have some other ones... I'll have to start taking them out ^^

Day 99

Wenger "Rambler for kids"? I seriously can't find the name for this one. It's just like a 65mm version of Vic's Rambler with an old flathead combotool. No SD tip on the nail file. Both the blade and the nail file have rounded tips just like the kids versions of other knives.

I've dug through the wiki and in multiple catalogs but can't find any knife with this exact tool set (even with non-kids blade & file) nor any other kids version of a 65mm for that matter.

Can someone find the name of this guy somewhere?

It's NiB too! I forgot about that fact until it was time to put it back in last night. Label on the box says 1 564 01 but doesn't have a name. I'll call it a 65mm Junior for the record... As its the only junior of this size I've ever seen. Don't know if anyone noticed but the tip of the scissors are also rounded off.

Day 100

Wenger Esquire/Evo-81 with double color Red/Yellow scales. Back scale says Surf Life Saving.
