Although not officially part of the challenge, I've been carrying an Executive longer than many of you have probably been alive.

At the diner this morning, my wife needed scissors to cut out coupons for our trip to the supermarket.

Of course, my Executive was there to handle this task.

The Executive and my, quite heavily modded, Exskelibur ll.

Feeling a lot better today after having a cold so I'm eager to get outside.

A day of walking with Freja ( ) and so far during the challenge I've mostly used the peeler and the scissors for fruits and every day tasks. The extra knife I bring do the cutting, not because I need to or even prefer to buy because I love small handy knives

Day 18.

Pretty much as Yeager intended the Executive came for a trip out to the Norfolk Broads after a little mail opening. Hardly a day in the wild but being prepared can come to us all in the unlikeliest of places

Nice pic Bill! :like: :tu: :tu:

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.

Chuck Yeager Challenge, Day 19 :

You know how it is.... It's dark in the pre-dawn light and I'm not fully awake. Bleary-eyed I struggle to make a cup of coffee and get the day going. Patience, patience, let it brew. I get that first cup poured and reach for a fresh carton of cream (yeah, I'm a cream, no sugar, guy.).

***snap***

The ring pull on the mouth of the pour spout has torn away, leaving the spout closed. A moment of frustration because I really want this cup of coffee.

But I have the Executive and it's orange peeler in my pocket. In no time the seal is carved out and the cream is flowing.

Thank you, Executive.

Like many who have come before me, the smaller blade scraped opened and scraped away a foil seal, for some slime gun toy for my boy. Fingernails weren't quite up to the task. Unfortunately, my seven year old doesn't quite have the finger strength to cock the slime gun and pull the trigger, so it will be going back to the store. Maybe that's why there were a bunch on clearance. The scissors also removed a couple plastic tags from some random socks, yesterday.

Hmmm...Organic Valley...that's the brand that we buy (2% Milk).  The pull ring has broken on me at times and I end up opening the carton the way we used to before the spouts appeared.  I never thought of using the orange peeler to open the spout.  Very well done!

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...
