EDC a different SAK every day for 30 days #8 - 84mm Victorinox
« on: August 02, 2018, 11:29:35 AM »
For those of you who didn't know already: I've been carrying a different knife every day for the past 7 months, the goal being to do this for a whole year. I will be attacking the last 5 months of the year this Saturday (4th of August).

This month i'll be looking at the Victorinox cousins of last month's 85mm Wengers; the 84mm models. I'll get a good comparison I think.

As far as incentives go for joining me in this month's challenge:
- There's a badge for "EDC a different SAK every day for 30 days" which you could get if you don't have it
- If you only carry thin 84mm knives you could get the Minimalist badge
- You could revel in the fact that you're joining me in this historical event that is "the first person to carry a different SAK every day for a whole year" (and document it?)
- I may decide to do a giveaway if multiple people join me this month (you don't have to do the whole month if you can't)
- I will definitely do a giveaway at the end of the year including everyone that joined in during the year (for at least a whole week) in the draw

I'll keep counting the knives towards my year so 211 to 240.

I'll be once more following the guidelines I set out in month #2 (copy-pasted below). (getting boring but it's a force of habit now :D)

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.

For the record, here's the list of topics for the previous 7 months:

Well... If you have 84mm Alox knives you definitely can use them... Otherwise you are welcome to join in for the 15-20 days :D

Vintage pieces of sizes close to the monthly theme work too... "close enough".

I'll probably do 91mm Vic next month so don't use those :D

By about 210 days I think you started a day after our dear friend and me but I never set a fixed date for everyone :tu:

Also you're both really expanding my view of this category... I've carried these other ones in a more restrictive category earlier in the year so didn't really think the Alox 84mm would fit the description ^^ I was planning to go all cellidor (and nylon if any) this month but I guess I could spice things up... Even though I could last another whole month on just Alox 84mm :D

I have had some spare time... And attempted my first 58mm scales swap.

Watch opener is the precise tool needed for this task. Really useful tool :like:
