 :D. Actually, I like the idea of doing it with one knife.  I'm suffering from Puukko fever so this will be a good stand in for now.

I don't think the challenges are intended to encourage members to do anything illegal or hazardous. While hospital rooms may have internet connections, prison cells are less reliable when it comes to MTo access.

Remember: the challenge rule is one picture of your fixed blade every day. I don't interpret that to mean that you have have it with you 24/7 or shower with it or try to smuggle your fixie into a courthouse.

Use and carry the fixie when you can. Post at least one picture of your fixie every day showing how it was used, or not used.

I'm fortunate in that I can carry a fixed blade knife all-day, every day. For this challenge, just do what you can do. Hopefully you will learn some of the joys and benefits of having/using a fixed blade knife. Worst case: you will learn that fixies just are't your thing and are not sufficiently practical for you. That would be a result right there.  :tu:

But what the hell would I use it for in an IT environment?


 :dunno:

The only tool I'd ever use in an IT deparment is a 10# hammer. So I do see your point.

now the thing that will be the defining part of my crazy process - can you live with 30 days of food prep with Moras and a leuku?

If I can start late, the Tough Tool Challenge has a 7 day option
Of note, I'd be doing 7 days with a vintage Schrade multi, then 30 days with a vintage Schrade fixed blade

I'm preparing the little guy for the challenge.
I started taking it with me once in a while, in anticipation, and realized it would be even easier to carry on an office environment, if it was smaller.

So, it's now down to 12cm (about 3.5cm smaller). Just need to put a proper edge in it, and I'm good to go!
I'll post a pic, once it's finished!
