EDC a different SAK every day for 30 days #6 - 93mm Alox
« on: June 04, 2018, 10:05:32 PM »
Here goes month 6... oh how time flies  :ahhh

Been carrying 150 knives for the past 5 months: (month 1 [misc], month 2 [Alox84/85mm] , month 3 [Metal 74mm/Minimalist], month 4 [65mm], month 5 [58mm]), time for another 30 to complete this first half of the year.

Starting today, Monday the 4th of June, I'll be carrying a different 93mm Alox knife every day. I thought I might do 30 soldiers knives, and I could, but that would be a little bit boring so I'll mix them up for the enjoyment of us all.

I'm sorry to make this thread on the first day of my challenge... but I'm sure some of you could join me starting tomorrow, we all want to see your beauties!  :cheers:

I'll keep counting the knives towards my year so 151 to 180 (!!!).

Again, I'll be following the same guidelines I set out in month #2 (copy-pasted below). Again, I'm 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.

It's still a bit pointy... And the awl sure is menacing...

I like the idea though! They need to do a kinder Messer Alox (cue in someone with a link of this already existing). I'm against the whole kid soldier idea though :D

Thanks guys!

Day 153

Victorinox Soldier 91
It's like new but was actually restored at the spa a few weeks ago. It was given a new awl, new set of original soldier scales and an actual new 91 blade!!! You probably saw it in the "latest sak" thread but I wanted to carry it today and it felt great!

Great one, Syem!  :o

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Small knives can do what big knives do, just slower.

Nobody noticed the Victorinox crest on the button in the "background"? That's my Vic jacket :D I quite liked the dark aspect to those pics...

Anyways...

Are you talking about the Pioneer Rancher?
I have yet to see an unmodified 93mm Alox with a Phillips screwdriver :D

Mmh that is something I've heard many times before but I never tried it... Before this challenge I've been EDC-ing a CT34 for at least 15 years and an Alox MiniChamp for a shorter while.

I'll have to try that soon then :D

Day 157

Victorinox Farmer in Red OC Alox scales.
Came out shining new from the spa at the cost of having a newer blade... The old one was just too bad compared to the rest of the knife.
