Happy Chuck Yeager Challenge II Day 19!

I was setting up for a Swiss Champ "Family" photo and decided that my Cobalt blue Swiss Champ needed a lanyard for a future Swiss Champ Sunday photo feature.  Once again, my Executive easily handled this task...



Great pics Jim! :like: :tu: :tu:

Nice Swiss Champ family and good use of the scissors! :cheers:

It is ironic that in this thread about the Executive challenge I posted a picture yesterday of a box being opened followed by a picture of the 2 new Executives I just got and not one person commented on them.

If I was a betting man I would have thought that of all the pictures I have posted that one would have got at least one notice.

Now we know why I don't gamble. :D

So here is a picture of my red executive with the 2 new ones.

Click on picture for best picture.

If only I could find white and blue this side of the pond! Hard enough finding Black here. Lucky you Vm  :like: :cheers:

Strictly I've been out cycling most of today without SAK but I've carried the Executive when I got home. So here's a pencil case pic just because I like pencils

Day 19

Used the small blade for cutting the plastic wrap of two chupa - chups, for my son and his friend. No pic, but it worked perfectly, of course.

Pencils are wonderful implements. They don't dry up, they don't leak in a pocket, they write on almost any surface from cardboard boxes to a brick wall or smooth rock, and they even go through the washing machine with no damage when you forget them in your pocket. And they work in freezing cold.

If you take a sharp blade and scrape the point, you get powdered graphite, one of the finest dry lubricants in the world.

If the point breaks,  you use your SAK to whittle a new point.

Chuck Yeager Challenge, Day 19 (continued):


Used last night's chicken and a few veggies from the refrigerator to make up a chicken salad for dinner:




The Executive did a great job of carving the chicken off the bone. It was a little bit on the small side for veggie prep-work, but did just fine with a bit of attention and patience:





Mine is the one with the extra red-pepper flakes.  :D

The leather pouch with the Red Executive is actually a pouch for a DMT Pocket Diamond Stone and the other 2 leather pouches are pouches for EZE-LAP Pocket Diamond Stones.
