After two weeks using the Executive during this challenge... (choose best answer)

I think I found my grail knife!
0 (0%)
I think the Executive may become my new EDC.
3 (21.4%)
I'll likely carry this great little knife more often!
6 (42.9%)
I've gained some more respect for the 74mm knives and might carry one more regularly.
0 (0%)
Even with some limitations, I think it's a pretty good SAK. It's a keeper and might show up in my EDC when appropriate.
4 (28.6%)
I think it works pretty well, like so many SAK's, but it's not for me.
0 (0%)
It's a small SAK with a limited tool set; fun, but not really an EDC knife for my lifestyle.
1 (7.1%)
I've learned this isn't the SAK for me, I need something bigger/smaller or with more tools.
0 (0%)
I think this is the worst SAK ever. What's wrong with carrying a SwissChamp?

Day 10

Used scissor, another time. It's the most used tool for me, also for 84 - 91 mm sak.

I prefer to cut the plastic bag, because I don't want to break it. Then I closed it with a rubber band.

Day 10 :

More work in the yard today. 33.3ºC today and working in the heat wasn't much fun. 

Executive's orange peeler got used to make a clean cut when replacing a dripper head on an irrigation line.  Worked really well. Those little teeth just dug into the plastic and facilitated a nice cut.  :tu:

Some good play by the Jays.....the Sox....not so much.

Nix, Nova Scotia probably has more Red Sox fans than Jays and I'm one, but I never really got over losing the Expos   :(

Still the same carry, nothing new in terms of use. I remembered I have a Director at home.

It's even slimmer and nicer to show than the Executive. Would it be okay to use it instead of the Executive? Still need to make a smaller caddy/pouch for it, though...

 :think: :think:

Looks like an executive to me  :tu:

***sigh***

I was never an Expos fan, but I deeply regret Montreal's loss. It just made baseball more fun.

If I had my way there would be an MLB team in Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver in addition to that fine Jays club in Toronto.

(But...GO SOX!)

I feel like I've gotten off to a slow start on this challenge. The next few days will be occupied with some yard work and house repairs, but I hope to do a bit more with the Executive after that. I'm glad you guys are getting some decent time with this marvelous little SAK.  :tu:

Not to worry Nix I'm thoroughly enjoying it. But I'm on the hunt for a black scaled Executive now ...

Changing the oil in the bike and I couldn't wiggle the filter out, the Executive stepped in with the nail file  :tu:

Excellent use of the nail file, Greg.

I love having a small tool that can be improvised to do those little niggling jobs.  :tu:

We've been blessed with a phenomenal crop of tomatoes.  The problem in picking them is knocking the unripened ones off.  Executive to the rescue!
The seals on containers give me grief as well.  Here I'm using the orange peeler to take one off a new jar of Ovaltine!
