I think I'm getting ahead of myself. Blame Friday. Or Kirky. Either way, an important test...

Good luck to all participating in this challenge.  I will be watching from the sidelines this time because I already have the Spirit badge. As someone who's been carrying a Spirit everyday for a long time already, I can tell you you're all going to very quickly appreciate everything this MT can do, and the usefulness of its tool set in a size that's comfortable to pocket carry.  My only issue is having a hard time opening the tools because my nails are too short, but I'm carrying it with a sailor's rigging knife so I use the marlin spike on the rigging knife to open the tools on the Spirit.  :cheers:

I might suggest trying this way to carry it. It makes it a joy IMO.



Here is a video explaining the attachment method.

I’ve been carrying the spirit every day for a few months. Some times I really hated it because it would sit on its side in my pocket. Now with Victorinox belt clip... I feel like voltron has come together. It’s literally perfect. I would consider carrying other Vic’s for a challenge.... but the spirit is now my no compromise tool.

Cheers,
H.G.

No worries! Styx has set out the challenge rules in his first post:




This challenge will be run using standard challenge rules, enriched for goodness:

1.  Carry a Spirit for 30-days. It doesn’t have to be the same Spirit everyday, but it has to be a real Victorinox Spirit. Modded Spirits welcome.  Cheap copies, not so much.

2.  Try to use every tool in the Spirit’s ample tool set at least once.

3.  Post a fresh photo of your Spirit every day. Action photos appreciated.

4.  Post up insights, memories, and Spirit stories as you are able.

5.  A final summary at the end of the challenge is always appreciated. How does the Spirit stack up against your beloved Wave or Rebar or MP600 or…… paper clip? Give the MTo community an honest and frank assessment. Did the Spirit live up to it’s popular reputation?


The challenge starts 01 October 2018, local time, and will wrap up 31 October 2018.


And I am asking everyone to carve a Jack O'lantern during the challenge as well!

Wow, my wife is going to give me the biggest look if I try and use my Spirit X to carve a pumpkin :climber:. Will do it anyway though.

I wish I had my tools to make the Mods to my spirit that I have been mulling over. For now I'll keep standard configuration. I wish the tools were a bit easier to open. After a shower I can't easily open them with soft fingernails. I know how to fix it, but it requires some serious tools and some nail biting control...

Cheers,
H.G.

Seriously the Spirit has the "Best looking" Multi-tool award.

Double points to the person that finds a way to use all the individual tools while doing the pumpkin! Can opener looks like a perfect inner wall scraper!

That Dark Spirit...no tool should look that good...  :drool:


I wish they made a black version of the Victorinox belt clip so that It would match perfectly with that tool. At least they have 4” black cables for the attachment method. There should be some black belt carriers to attach the tool. At worst you can use one of these:

oh, trust me, the Spirit's blade is no ordinary butter knife, it'll cut thick flooring mat with ease, try that with a butter knife, or a sharp plain edge for that matter, and see how far you get  :whistle:
