You are going to need your Thinking Caps on for this one- it gets a bit confusing, but that's no surprise, since it comes from a particular member who hails from a place known for wooden shoes, wind energy (before it was cool) and certain mood altering plant use.



At first it looks like just an ordinary Pioneer, but it's not just any ordinary Pioneer, it's an extraordinary Farmer!  One that has had the saw layer removed.  Which would make it a Pioneer, although the box says Farmer on it, and you will get the box too, as proof that you aren't going out of your mind!

But wait, there's more!  Look closely at the photos!



Look closelier!


Yup, those are Torx screws holding this magnificent doodad together!



That means that this Pioneer/Farmer Hybrid is adjustable for tension, and field strippable if necessary.  And, it is so awesome that I am going to totally pass over the obvious joke about Farmers stripping in the fields!



As far as I know, this is the first and only adjustable, user serviceable Farmer without a saw mod ever done, and it could be yours for as little as ten measly dollars!  Heck, the confusion it causes is well worth that alone!

As usual, if we hit our monthly goal of $275 we will give this beauty away to one lucky member, and to be eligible all you need to do is donate a minimum of $10 to the Forum Operational Fund.  You can do so using the Donations tab at the top of the page, the big orange Make a Donation button on the right (it looks like this: ) or simply by following this link:

https://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=treasury

They all go to the same place- destination, Forum Operations Fund!

If we hit the goal by midnight on the 15th (Forum Offset Time of course!) then we will double the draw with another super cool prize that I have standing by just in case!

Usually at this point I ask if anyone has any questions, but I am guessing that there are a lot of questions this time that I may not be able to answer!  :P

Hey Guys this is a great item up for grabbs not to mention an even better place to hang out.  I'm surprised to see that at 57% of the month already gone we have only funded 14% of the budget.

and if you won't do it for the forum, do it for the SAK!  :D :facepalm:

And if you don't do it for the site or the SAK, do it for the member who put his blood, sweat and tears (thankfully not literally!) into making this beautiful little knife and sending it on to me to offer it to all of you!  If we can't support our members and their efforts, what the heck are we doing this all for?   :pok:

I just made a purchase in the Forums, so I made a donation to support the site, and as a bonus I get entered... Win-Win situation.  :-)

Isn't it a Pioneer 8?

I think there was an issue with the displayed amount... I gave 20€ the other week and the next day it was still showing the same amount as before...

Not to the running total, but you are still entered into the draw:

https://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=treasury

Our actual total so far is $141, which puts us at roughly 52%, much better than the 27% showing.  I'll get Micah to look at what went wrong there when he gets a moment.  Even so, we are barely halfway to the goal, and if we don't hit it then this one doesn't find a new home!   :ahhh
