Huntsman Challenge
« on: October 05, 2018, 04:36:21 PM »
For over 30 years my faithful Huntsman was my edc.  Once I started collecting, though, it's pretty much sat on the bench.  I'd like to change that!  I'm putting the call out to all Huntsman to don theirs and join me from 1 November to 30 November on the mighty Huntsman Challenge!  Modded Huntsman are welcome, as is carrying another mt, but the idea is to use the Huntsman primarily.

Mind you Barry I'm going to need persuading that the Navy Camouflage Huntsman that Vic have just brought out should have a wood saw. A harpoon surely? :rofl:

I'm getting ready to buy a secondhand inlaid logo BSA model Huntsman (which is really a Fieldmaster) to replace the standard Fieldmaster I trashed during my teen years. Does the BSA "Huntsman" and Fieldmasters count?

Maybe the new aircraft carriers are being fitted with a wooden hull to compensate for some of the other rising costs?

The participants will have to work to live up to the legacy of a certain 30 Day Victorinox Huntsman Challenge.

I do have a Huntsman... :D

I had a Huntsman clone growing up. A very decent clone. Not like those cheap sak-a-likes. One day my brother got a cheap silver one, you know those, so I gave him my Huntsman clone, and got a SwissChamp, then a Fieldmaster, and then a lot more. I settled for a D. Tinker, and gave my brother one as well.

But I do have a Huntsman...  :ahhh

Good challenge, Barry.

I have a Huntsman that I got this past spring during a buying frenzy. I keep it in my top drawer at work along with an old PST II in case any other technicians dkneed it. Huntsman and the Fieldmaster are really the best, simple Swiss Army knives. All the basic tools plus scissors and a saw. Everything else is extraneous and exotic, really.

The Huntsman and Fieldmaster put the "scissors vs saw" debate to bed.

Now, if only they would replace that hook with a Philips on some future model,  and they could put the Philips vs corkscrew debate to bed as well.

That’s what I am thinking...my two favorite tools on one knife. That’s why I’m doing the challenge. The sissors and saw.  :tu:

Good idea Barry, I'm not sure if I'm in just yet, it'll depend how things go in the next month with some obligations I have. 
I'll be watching and rooting from the sidelines no matter what.  :tu:
I always thought that if I could only have one knife, a Huntsman (or an Explorer), either would suit me fine.

Huntsman has been ordered and will be here sometime before Friday at the latest. Got a good deal on it with the pouch for under $30.00 brand new.  :woohoo:

30 days with a Huntsman or Fieldmaster?  Gee, you could have at least made it something challenging.  I'm in. How about  including the Mountaineer as well, in case anyone thinks they need a file more than a saw?

So is the fieldmaster allowed? I don't have a huntsman since I have a fieldmaster, but much rather carry my Mountaineer. Can a mountaineer slide in? To me its no debate, a saw is pretty much useless to me.

I'd like to limit it to the Huntsman since the badge in the works is going to be a Huntsman badge.
