Day 16 continued:


Needed to take down a satellite dish but the poor wrench on the Wenger just wasn’t up to the task, so out came the PST!

Today was an easy day for my tools. Scully only cut, filed and cleaned my finger nails. No pictures of it. I spare you the details  :D

Day 17:

While it’s “officially”  Day 17, I am still up from the 16th. Haha

But I went digging thru my box of SAKs and found this gorgeous girl!  A 4 layer Wenger Handyman.






I’ll be carrying this all day today (Sunday). Not much planned. Maybe a run to Lowe’s for supplies. I bought two ceiling fan/light units to install in two bedrooms. Hopefully the Handyman can help me!!





I should stop binge watching Star Trek: Enterprise on Netflix and get some sleep!

Day 17.

Had to travel today because I am on a business trip (educational purpose) the whole next week.

Hard to see, but there is a MT (Pulse) on one pic  :whistle:

At least I got a nice view.

Good luck in Berlin Shuya!

Nice tool Poncho, would be interested in one of those too  :cheers:

Day 17

Mulder and Scully unpacked and assembled a new office chair today. Well at least half way. To mount the armrests i had to get a larger screwdriver. Not because Mulder or Scully could not handle the job. But whoever designed those stupid armrests was a smurfing idiot. The screws for that area had slits large enough to use two screwdrivers on them. At the same time....  :rant: Also the threads were not aligned properly with the holes and covered with fabric. Anyway, after a lot of smurfing the chair was assembled.

So guys, we are over and a half weeks into this now :cheers: how are the discontinued tools handling your tasks :think: are they doing as good as the newer, improved versions or are they dated and you can tell that they need updating  :think: :tu: I have used mine a bit here and there and have always found that some of the older designs are just as good now as they were when they were in production  :like: I am sure there are problems with some of them but on the flip side, some of the ones that aren't discontinued have problems that need updating as well ;) :D Love to hear everyone's thought :salute:

Regarding SAKs I dont see much difference. They are just different unless you step really far back to the old Soldiers.

The MTs are just the opposite. While SAKs evolved for more than 100years, MTs are just little more than 30years old, and the big steps in handling happened in the last 15...20 years. Compare a OST or PST to a Rebar or Charge or Swisstool.
Cant imagine doing hard work with my PST. Maybe because I didnt grow up with the the first one.

Day 18:

Have my normal daily work carry. My PST and SI.


When not working, they reside in the front pocket of my lunchbox.



While the PST will be with me at my work station, the SI will stay in my lunchbox tonight. Instead my Handyman will be in my pocket.



I don’t get many action shots at work as I’m technically not supposed to have my phone out during production time. But I never was great at following the rules!  Haha!!!

Day 18:

Took my Small Climber out today. Used the scissors on a loose thread on my pants. Bout it.

Not much of an opinion on changes for SAKs over the years other than missing new versions of the 84mm scissors.

I also like the old smooth Wenger scissors much much much more than the serrated kind, I know they are supposedly self sharpening but if you use them to trim finger nails like I often do you have to spend a lot more time with the nail file to keep them from snagging on things afterwards. This is one of the biggest reasons I prefer to carry a Vic over a Wenger even though I love the Wenger wrench and pliers.

I have no problems with the old tools, as a matter of fact i like some of them better than the new ones. This is especially true for the PST II. I have a Skeletool that i consider far inferior to the PST. Both have almost the same size and form factor, but the PST has way more tools packed. Even the pliers on the PST are slightly larger. The only point for the skeletool would be the exchangeable bits, but they are not even the good ones, but this half size thin bullsmurf.
They even had to make holes everywhere in the frame to reduce weight i guess.  :facepalm: It just feels like that Tim Leatherman spent years on improving and designing the PST, while the Skeletool was probably smurfed out in half a year. Sorry for the rant, i guess it is just the times we live in.


Back to the challenge:

Mulder and Scully did not have too much work today. Besides opening letters and packages i used Mulders pliers to remove a stubborn screw from the desk top i am assembling.

Poncho, one thing came into my mind last night about the old tools is the way better space usage, not only regarding the number of tools but the size for example of the mainblade.
compare a Blast blade to a Rebar one. not only is it larger but thicker and less flexible (feels better).
Bad example in that point are the swisstools where the blades are so short compared to the handle lenght.
Thats why I still love the Pulse and Blast, awesome tool size for the bulk.
In the newer Juice they shortened the blade even more...

That is a good point and I even noticed how big the Wenger blade is in the pic you had above :like: I always did like the shape of the main blade on Wenger better than Vic :salute: I have an S18 (I think it is but always forget ::) ) with Evo scales like yours and love that knife :tu:

Day 19 of 30

I have with me a LM Blast today :tu: This was my second LM (it replaced my PST) The choice was made for this MT when I first joined MTO :tu: It actually beat out the Wave for me back then :o I bought it in a gift tin that I still have, with a LM clip watch :cheers: I really loved the watch and it lasted a couple years as my EDC work watch before finally dying :salute: I carried the Blast for a while and it was replaced by an OG Supertool but I still carried the Blast off and on for several years and even recently I have carried it :tu: A great tool that has a really nice toolset (same tools as a Wave except it doesn't have a serrated blade) it is part of the Zytel line of tools that were discontinued around the time the Rebar was released :cheers: and as you saw earlier in the challenge, it also came in BO :like:
