EDC a different SAK every day for 30 days #5 - 58mm
« on: May 06, 2018, 02:34:32 AM »
Here we go for month 5 of carrying different SAKs every single day for a whole year!

(month 1 [misc], month 2 [Alox84/85mm] and month 3 [Metal 74mm/Minimalist], month 4 [65mm])

Starting today, Saturday the 5th of May, I'll be carrying a different 58mm knife every day. They will then of course all be Victorinox.

I'll keep counting the knives towards my year so 121 to 150. Can't believe it's already that many!

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.

So, I didn't exactly count them but I feel like I could go for 3 months with 58mm knives... SURELY one of you could join me for just 1 month, right?

Here goes day 1 of this month with an old EDC that was on my keychain for a while before I replaced it with a MiniChamp with similar scales...

Day 121

Victorinox Classic SD in silver Alox scales.

Nobody likes my mountain shots? I had to drive all the way there and back on the same day. It started raining a bit later so I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to take these pics.

I heard Borg likes the Macao bordeaux so here goes today...

Day 124

Victorinox "De Luxe" - Bordeaux Red

I've put it next to the Wenger Macao Bordeaux for comparison. (and for Borg)

Thanks Syem,   I presume 5 microns is the thickness of the gold..i would wear that off in no time polishing those beauties, they are both stunning  :drool:
It's just a shame they didn't do them in 91mm...

Similar things happened to me... It was more often a budget issue but still pretty frustrating.

Yup, that's 5 micron gold plating on the Macao. I think my "700" one says 2 micros in the box so 5 is not bad, considering :D

I haven't found any info regarding the golden rim on the De Luxe... Not even sure it's actually gold but it does seems like it.

I would last only 18 days in this.
That's already a lot of knives... At least you've stayed reasonable! I'm having trouble picking one every morning because there's so many in the box... And I know I have a couple more Alox LE someplace else because their boxes don't fit in with the rest of my 58mm. :D

BTW thanks for taking the time to take the beautiful picture! Really nice pieces! I have some of the same and will have to try and hold back on getting the others!

I don't.

It is just like brand new tho. Blade and scales were in very bad shape. Vic made it brand new for CHF 10.- then sent me back the old parts.

Make sure to always ask them to return the old parts. Just mention what you'd like them to do and what they should absolutely not do for example if your blade has an old tang-stamp or something you can ask them to restore the blade but swap the scales...

I'll have to bring them some other ones now that I think of it... I've got an 84mm Sentry with green Alox scales in pretty bad shape. I know they have the red OC 84mm scales still in stock but I gotta try the rarer ones...
