Title: Swisschamp Sunday!
Post by: Barry Rowland on April 23, 2016, 04:27:33 PM
I looked but I didn't see anything like this, so on the heels of Spartan Saturday, here comes Swisschamp Sunday!  The longer I'm around this knife, the more I like it!!

I got a Swisschamp in the 1980s... last saw it in the 1990s... found the pouch the other day but no Swisschamp... I'd post a picture but it's just too sad. A crumpled old pouch with nothing in it...

I really should get a new one!

I've got one on the must have list too Thunderpants....the one pictured is my son's knife.  For as big as they seem, they balance out pretty nicely.  My list of lost tools brings tears to my eyes.....'84 PST, SOG Powerlock,....nothing lonelier than an empty pouch.

There's a Swiss Champ owners club, but what the heck - any chance to show off the knives.

Since my Swisschamp is almost always in my pocket, I approve of SCS!

Can I play if I bring my Champion ?

I have carried it most days for the last 30 odd years, unless I am booted and suited. Since I joined this forum you lot have corrupted me into carrying other models and to be honest I feel like I'm cheating on her, it will be nice to have an excuse to drop her in my pocket.

I used to be a Swisschamp guy, but since I carry the Compact or Deluxe Tinker, I feel the Swisschamp was too thick to carry.

But in the end of April I'm going to travel with my family to celebrates my grandma's birthday. I need one SAK to take care almost anything. So since last week I picked the Swisschamp again from my drawer. The first day I still thought it was too thick, but after a week I'm in love again with my Swisschamp.

For me it's Swisschamp everyday!

When I started reading your post I thought to myself.

"Self, it looks like you might be picking up a nice used SC cheap."

Glad you are getting along with it though. The SC is one of the best SAKs imo.

Yes I'm so happy to carry the SC again after a long time which I always carry another SAK.

For this family trip, at the first place I was confused about which SAK to carry and I have an idea to carry SAK combo such as (Spirit + Compact) or (Deluxe Tinker + Farmer) or (Spirit + Manager). But suddenly I remembered my SC, the SAK that I always carry for several years since 2001 and went to the drawer since I became acquainted with Compact and Deluxe Tinker in 2013.

Btw this time I carry the newer SC, my old SC which my father bought in 1987 was my first SAK and I have no intention to use it again. I keep it for memories purpose.

My Champs. The black one has been my EDC for the better part of two decades, replacing a Champion I donated to my parents. I'm trying to get my wife to carry this in her purse, after she complained to me people in her office were always looking to her for small tools, eyeglass screwdrivers and such.  :pok:

I recently bought a new red celidor one to be my latest EDC, engraved with my nickname "DaddyCat".

Whoo hoo. This is my first time getting to post in this thread. I finally took the plunge this week when I found this Swiss Champ in a local shop just waiting for me to adopt it and bring it home. I always thought the SC would be difficult to tote around and the tools would be awkward to use with its thick size, however, I found all this to just be myth. It carries easy on my belt clip and handles well. I'm impressed and wish that I had one back in my BSA days.

They're awesome edc'rs Batosai!  I was always under the same impression, but they really do carry well, and everything is easy to access.  Honestly, they really don't feel that much bigger than carrying a 4 layer SAK IMO.  Great pic and good to see one on duty!

I was regularly carrying a Ranger and switching with a Deluxe Tinker (both 4 layers) and they carried about the same now that you mention it. I had just started carrying my craftsman (a blend of the ranger and deluxe) when I found the Swiss Champ. Good timing

As an add on to this thread, has anyone else seen the turtle video on the interwebs in which some Vic pliers are being used? I took two screen shots and it looks like a Swiss Champ The pliers were used to successfully pull a plastic straw out from the turtles nose.

I never had one. I've always doubted that it could actually be a usable tool considering the width of the SAK. Do you actually use it on a regular basis or is this more a symbolic model for you ?

I love SwissChamps. Around 1980-something I had a fake one I bought out of Boys Life magazine once I had earned my Totin' Chip in Cub Scouts.  But I dared not dream that one day I could own the real thing. I've had 2 real ones. One was a USA flag one I bought for parts. Technically I still have it, fully disassembled. I'll probably make a Deluxe Explorer out of it.

This is my main one, I got it for $39 new in the package, one of those plastic bubble packages, not a gift box. Package is marked 2007. It has an older style metal file, long phillips/gray mag and it has the hook on back.  One of my favorites.  It mainly stays on my desk but does get used all the time for repairs. I have one of these cases for it:

https://www.rei.com/product/409212/rainbow-of-california-swiss-army-knife-case

It fits a Champ very snugly, but it does fit. I trust it not to fall out during adventure type activities. Can be worn horizontal or vertical.

Looking at the Cybertool 41/L as an alternative to the Swisschamp (not that I need an alternative, but I DO need to collect more SAKs)

I've been in mourning the last two weeks over my Swiss Champ. Two weeks ago at work I was pulling the Swiss champ out of my front pocket and I dropped it from my pocket to the ground. From that short of a fall the liner between the flathead opener and the scale dented in so bad I can't fully open the flathead.  I was devastated when this happened. My beloved Swiss champ has been retired until I can put money aside for a new one. Until then I've been switching EDC's between the Pioneer X and my Ruby Deluxe Tinker.

My favorite one, a replica of the one I carried for years, vtg. '91-'94. Got my original in '92, now partially disassembled waiting for a refit. This one is a user, but with the Spirit in the same kit and the Pioneer X in my pocket all the time, mostly the scale tools see any regular use now. I really prefer the clean look of the earlier pliers and the old mag. glass, but it might just be because that's how I remember them when I got my first one. The SC is also the only pocket knife I ever carried to inspire blasphemous comments!  :D

Its hexagonal grid (gets rid of time/distance problem with diagonal movement on basic grid). And the map is accurate (on 8km scale) as one hex describes 8000 meters of distance.
These maps are usually used on strategic or operational wargames as this one too. This being one of those monster games that takes whole human life to play through (thousands of hours from ten to twelve players).
Kind of an never ending hobby that changes to an project after few years of playing. The map itself is ten feet (around 3 meters) long.

Aha, that explains a lot. I thought it was a real world map. I understand about the distance problem (looked it up on Wikipedia). As I said, impressive!

SwissChamp stag (1985/1986), Champion (early 80's), and another SwissChamp (late 90's).

The Champion is one of my oldest SAKs. I bought it NIB and have carried it for over 20 years. It's been my desktop SAK after I retired it and replaced it with the black SwissChamp. The latter has been EDC'd for a few office years only, it looks and feels brand new. The stag SwissChamp is a shelf queen.

I thought that I would honor "SwissChamp Sunday" by displaying my 1985/86 SwissChamp on our entertainment center.  Note: normally it is a (cotton) snow-covered scene with dozens of little figures playing in the snow.  This year we ramped way back on decorations after my wife fell and suffered a compression fracture.

Thanks for your kind thought!  It's been 4 1/2 months and she is much better.  Hopefully, she will be good as new in a few more months!

With five years of Latin in my younger days, I noticed your tag line.  I get the John the Baptist reference (Voice crying in the desert) and the Virgil's Aeneid reference but am puzzled by the PS3 reference.

Sony Playstation!  While aware of game stations, I've never used them or seen them in action.  Now you know how not plugged into current culture I am.  It's a good thing that you didn't make any references to sitcoms from the last 30 years or so because they would have sailed over my head.   :rofl:

I ended last Swiss Champ Sunday with the purchase of another Swiss Champ.  I have the original model that replaced the Champion in 1985 (this original model ran for two years 1985-86).  I also have two modern Swiss Champs.  I really like the Swiss Champ but sincerely hope I end this day with three Swiss Champs and don't succumb to another SC purchase.  :)

There are lots I don't have.  Assuming we are only talking about the plain Swiss Champ and not the XLT, XXLT & XAVT, I have only the original replacement model and the 5th variation (2005 to the present).  I have two samples of the 5th variation, one with black scales and the other with red scales.

Here is a reference that contains some information on the variations from the original Swiss Champ:

Agree, but the newest magnifier (2012 onwards) is two piece - clear plastic frame with a glass lens - and it's better than the other two.  Bigger field of view than the grey one, higher magnification than the previous one-piece design.

I really like the white scales!  One of my Swisschamps is the original model that replaced the Champion.  I had intended to see if I could sand/polish the existing scales but they turned out to not be original.  My plan is to equip this Swisschamp with white scales that I got from Folderbeholder (thanks FB!). 

Looking at your SC is great motivation to get on the stick!

The grey frame glass magnifiers have been my clear preference and a strong consideration in my multiple Explorer purchases.  I thought that my first two Explorer purchases with clear magnifiers were plastic and I quickly put them back in their boxes.  Amazon pictured the grey-frame magnifier but the clear magnifiers show up.  Since I purchased them for Christmas, they were stored for months and past the return date.  When I learned about the newest glass magnifier with clear plastic frame, I had a closer look at the clear framed magnifiers and could see that there were glass with a clear frame. This helped me feel much better about the Amazon purchase.  Encouraged by the performance of the clear magnifiers, I picked up an Explorer with a clear magnifier but it turned out to be plastic.  I wish I knew how to tell the difference between the plastic and clear framed glass magnifiers from photos.  Since I don't, I lean heavily toward the grey-framed magnifier for my purchases.  My last two Swisschamp purchases have clear magnifiers and I need to have a closer look to see if they are the clear framed glass magnifiers.

Okay, this is interesting. Especially what NorCalJim said, it's hard to tell the difference.
As far as I know now, there are three versions:
- Grey, glass lens, 8x magnification (1973-2004)
- Transparent, plastic (one piece?), 5x magnification (2004-2012)
- Transparent, glass lens, 6x magnification (2012-now)

As it turns out, I was just talking to my dad about getting a SwissChamp and he gave me his!  :tu:
This does make things a little difficult though, I was planning to get a second hand SwissChamp and replace the scales with green plus scales (if available).
He has changed the red scales for a red and a black one. So I don't really want to change them as it took him years to get a SwissChamp and it really is his SwissChamp.

To bad I missed SwissChamp Sunday.
Yesterday late at night I got my dads SwissChamp.
It's a great SAK, tough too heavy for pocket carry, so I'll keep it in my backpack.

The second knife I ever bought for myself, the SwissChamp with SOS kit.  Total cost with tax, $107.61, purchased 6/7/93 with check #105....barely had a checking account, but buying a SAK was top priority even back then!

That's really nice Robert. Does the clock actually work and is it set to Swiss Rail time ?

I have to  confess that I've abandoned my SC today in favour of my Ti Yeoman egged on by the "Why I don't like Alox" thread. What a dilemma ....  :think:

My replacement SC should be in my mailbox today.

Trying to decide on which plus scales for this one.

Well that or just sending it to Robert for some Ti scales.

So if somome were to have it made in to a Syph style Ti but lose the corkscrew would it still be a Swisschamp?

Happy Swiss Champ Sunday!

I had recently watched this National Geographic Megafactories video about Victorinox on YouTube.  Most of us are familiar with Victorinox's history and have seen videos on the manufacturing process.  I especially like this one (it's over 40 minutes long) and since it has multiple Swiss Champ appearances in the video, I thought it would be an appropriate tribute for Swiss Champ Sunday.

Put my Swisschamp chisel to work today.  It's not finished, but it should look like the one my son made with his soon (on the right).  I don't know if there's a badge, but I'm strongly considering a 30 day challenge with this awesome knife!

This photo had previously convinced me that I needed to get some emerald scales for one of my Swiss Champs.  I spent some time last week planning some cosmetic changes for some of my Swiss Champs.  I was originally planning to put some white scales on my original Swiss Champ (the first edition that replaced the Champion). My thought was that because the scales were not original that I might as well put a white replacement set on it.  Eventually, I decided that a red replacement scale set would be more appropriate for the original SC model.  The white set will be matched with a newer SC.  I am also planning to replace to other SC scale sets with Sapphire and Emerald. 

I had seen some photos of an assortment of SC SAKs in different colors and it planted the seed of wanting my own SC color assortment.

This photo had previously convinced me that I needed to get some emerald scales for one of my Swiss Champs.  I spent some time last week planning some cosmetic changes for some of my Swiss Champs.  I was originally planning to put some white scales on my original Swiss Champ (the first edition that replaced the Champion). My thought was that because the scales were not original that I might as well put a white replacement set on it.  Eventually, I decided that a red replacement scale set would be more appropriate for the original SC model.  The white set will be matched with a newer SC.  I am also planning to replace to other SC scale sets with Sapphire and Emerald. 

I had seen some photos of an assortment of SC SAKs in different colors and it planted the seed of wanting my own SC color assortment.

 :climber:

 :cheers: Thx Jim!  The Emerald scales render well for me!  :salute:

..... WOW!!!! How did I live without a work sharp all these years. For the size and price ( about $25 shipped) you can't go wrong. The guides won't work on all grinds (don't use them on Scandinavian grind like say a Mora or Tops BOB or Chisle grind like a Trekker) but for most knives on the market it definitely a go. The serations on my Soldier have never been sharper and then they are now.

I have an fold flat wood based stove now.

I now have 6 Swiss Champs after a recent purchase of two with 8x magnifiers.  Two need cleaning and one just a little sprucing up.  I will be changing out scales on at least three and maybe four.  Given my current commitments, that may get done sometime between now and May.  The Swiss Champ in this group photo is sitting on a small table where I am sitting and is in easy reach...

Very kind SG if only I could understand why they thought a carrot should have a curved handle not unlike an umbrella. Beats me but I won't let that get in the way of a small snack  :hatsoff:

I thought it was just a bit British humor (of which I am a fan of).  :D  :salute:

As Lindt is Swiss I can only scratch my head in wonder. I'm sure I can come up with a humorous explanation .... leave it with me :whistle:

 :rofl: :salute:

Actually I'm not sure I can. I say this because I'm a fan of Assos cycling gear which is also Swiss. And their product naming convention seems bonkers ....

Gotta be targeted demographic marketing...the Swiss are clever, I'm sure they have a chocolate Jackalope in the planning stages to go after the Texas market....

I should have pulled the wrappings down to reveal the actual food, but I was too eager to take a pic and stuff them in my mouth. Still, I do think you can find those in America.

It's traditional Greek fast food (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souvlaki). Those in the pic are Greek wraps, round pitta bread, chicken chunks on a stick (which is removed for the wrap), tzatziki, tomato, onion, and fries, with fries on the side.  :drool:

It is an amazing variety of Swiss Champ and I am going to need some new photos before June is over.

I took my new ruby Swiss Champ out in the wild today. I generally have the right tool for the job (and with the Swiss Champ how could you not!) but I decided to give the saw a little test run. Wow- sharp and capable! I can easily see where using the SAK saw will be a huge complement to my bushcraft knives. Love the Swiss Champ!

I am using one of the last Swiss Champ models with the grey framed magnifier (pliers have crimp).  I updated the scales with Plus white scales and added a mini screw driver and straight pin.  My photos will be delayed until I can figure out an alternative to Photobucket and their new premium upgrade to do what I have been doing for free.  I have a Flickr account and hope that I can use it instead.

Meanwhile, I purchased a Sapphire scale Swiss Champ this morning for my ninth SC.  Here is one of the seller's photos that I don't have to resize:

But the question is, what other blades/saws were you sporting?
Title: Re: Swisschamp Sunday!
Post by: Barry Rowland on July 17, 2017, 04:47:51 AM
The only other blade I had was a Bear Grylls folder.  The thing that saved me was a ton of smaller dead wood and some great tinder.  Last year on the Appalachian trail, my son saved the day with his Hiker.  I always said I'd not go into the woods again without a saw, but knew the area and the availability of small wood.  I wanted to get the creative juices flowing, and have neglected my Climber lately, so I figured this would be a good time.

Haha, yeah, I guess it does depend :), thank you for the idea and caveats noted. The pouch does look good.

Black Sunday. And for the record it travels in a Swiss red Vic pouch. Can't be beaten.

As my champ is red, I was actually thinking of the red case!!

Been using it all week at work and it is awesome, found many uses, including just as a fidget spinner at times :D even found a use for the parcel hook. Have it on a suspension clip.

This knife has been with me for almost 30 years, but I think this is the first time it has posed for a photo.

The Swisschamp joined me down at the allotment this Sunday to survey our crops. Picked a load of white, black and redcurrants, and looking forward to the apples, pears and plums!

Thanks for all of the SC photos.  I like the use of the hook to attach to a coffee cup. :)

It's the Camo SC for me today...

Bill, that's a Small Mouth Bass that he used a rooster tail to catch.  My other son used his fly rod and a small black fly to get his fish with.  He wound up getting 3 Perch and a Crappy himself.  I was there in the support role  :D

I like both Wenger and Vic but most of the time prefer Vic. Until you compare the 58mm line vs the 65mm. When I discovered the PTC it quickly became my most used SAK. Don't get me wrong the 58mm line as well made as any other SAK it's just a less usefull tool set.

It's good to see such enthusiasm for the Swiss Champ!  I look forward to Swiss Champ Sundays and enjoy seeing the variety of SCs.

My SAK weakness is the Explorer and the purchases got way out of hand (probably more than 20...I am thinking of getting a count before the month is over). Well, my SC admiration has also fanned the purchase flames and I have lost track of the SC number (think it's more than 10). It is really hard to resist these great SAKs!

Given the amount of SC enthusiasts, I am surprised to see only three photo posts. Well, there is plenty of Sunday left for more SC Sunday folks.

Yeah quite fun. I have a little Grundig portable as well that was my first set. Needed something with full 150-30000khz coverage + SSB and more sensitivity so I got the Sony last year. Shame Radio Australia isn't on anymore. That was my favorite to listen too.

By the way, what model is your Samsung tablet? I've had a think for Samsung's Notes (Note 2, Note 3, Note 4, Note 8 tablet, Note 10.1 2014 tablet and Note 12.2 Pro).  The phone Notes are long gone now but I still have all three tablets.

Perfect!!! Richard Dean Anderson gave us 7 great seasons with the help of his trusty SAK(s).

By the way, what model is your Samsung tablet? I've had a think for Samsung's Notes (Note 2, Note 3, Note 4, Note 8 tablet, Note 10.1 2014 tablet and Note 12.2 Pro).  The phone Notes are long gone now but I still have all three tablets.

How dare you edit an hour after posting  ;) It's just an old Galaxy tab 4. The 10 inch one.

Caught me! I inserted the question about the tablet since it had been featured multiple times and considering my attachment to the Note series. :)

Looks like it could use some cleaning up.

I'm always amazed how well the various SAKs I put through the spa treatment do clean up.  I usually start with the liberal application of dishwashing liquid and soaking in very hot water for at least 2 hours before going over all crevices with a tooth brush and pipe cleaners.  One some occasions where I had popped the scales, I added a run through the dishwasher. The simple spa treatment seems to work well for a spruce-up. I did leave out the hair dryer and lube portion. :)

Just like dedicated tools...we have the tools we might need spread out near the job and grab the ones we need.  In your case the SC was one of those tools.

I am assuming that your photos are of your everyday carry and am curious about the three tactical knives that seem somewhat redundant. Since many people work on minimizing EDC carry weight, the three tactical knives would seem to add weight for similar function.

For some people, maximizing carry is much more fun than minimizing weight. I´m one of them and so, I suspect, is The Peacent. It has been noticed that both TP and I are gardeners.

I did think of the fun factor. :)

All three of the dedicated knives (non-multi-tools) were biased toward cutting or sawing, which would make sense for gardening.  The largest one would fit my idea of a tactical knife. I probably understood maximum carry fun best as a teenager. I had started collecting knives as a young teenager and used to strap a 3 tier ankle sheath for three throwing knives while also carrying a hunting knife in a belt sheath and if I was in one of the large fields near where I lived, I would also be carrying my bow and a quiver full of arrows.  If it was cool enough for a jacket, I would probably have another 6 throwing knives at hand. :)

These days, I go for minimum carry with more close at hand (either at home or in the car). With so much emphasis on YouTube and elsewhere on minimizing weight, ThePeacent's EDC made me curious. :)

Happy Swiss Champ Sunday!

that's mostly from the Prepping Fad hipsters who spend all their time online talking about EDC instead of actually EDCing. Le Minimalism teehee ;) Most people just carry whatever they want, that's what makes the pics interesting. Something new everyday.

I was too busy cleaning all day Saturday, past the point of exhaustion at the half of the day but kept going for the other half. I slept 12 hours and laid around most of the day. Everything looks good though and the SwissChamp got a lot of use around the house.

Got my first SwissChamp in '92, this is it. Plans are to rebuild it soon. Had to disassemble 3 of my mods to retrieve the missing tools, and a couple are beyond repair. I EDC'd it until '97 or 8  ??? until I snapped an ear off the Phillips. I have enough SwissChamps now, time to get back to my original.  :salute:

Sorry for posting on Friday, but I don't have the time to contribute on coming Sunday.

Here is my revised Champ. A very long time ago one of the scales plus the under laying liner were badly damaged, so a few month ago I sent my 1987 Champ (2nd model) for a revision to Victorinox. Last week I it finally returned to me, after paying € 21,50 for P&H.

Victorinox had the liner repaired, the scales replaced by modern scales (with pinhole!), put in the pin, the new type mini-screwdriver (luckily I saved the original one), new T&T, new pen, and they replaced the old type pliers with the new pliers type!
So now I have a 1987 Swiss Champ with 2017 details. Should I be happy or not?? I don't know...

Here is my revised Champ. A very long time ago one of the scales plus the under laying liner were badly damaged, so a few month ago I sent my 1987 Champ (2nd model) for a revision to Victorinox. Last week I it finally returned to me, after paying € 21,50 for P&H.

Victorinox had the liner repaired, the scales replaced by modern scales (with pinhole!), put in the pin, the new type mini-screwdriver (luckily I saved the original one), new T&T, new pen, and they replaced the old type pliers with the new pliers type!
So now I have a 1987 Swiss Champ with 2017 details. Should I be happy or not?? I don't know...

 :like:

A very early Swiss Champ Sunday to you!

Considering that the underlying liner was damaged, I would think you would be ecstatic to have a reconditioned and current Swiss Champ. I have the original model of Swiss Champ that replaced the Champion. I am happy to have it but I have a much higher regard and pride of ownership towards my other  Swiss Champs with grey-framed magnifier and thick pliers with wire crimper. If you really want to have an older model like the one you had, they are out there!

Of all the Swiss Champs, I have the highest regard for the Super Timer.  My most treasured Swiss Champ is a mint NOS Super Timer.

I think your story had a very happy ending.

The rock'em sock'em robots have been around from sometime in the early to mid 1960s. I remember seeing them in stores around that time period but don't remember exactly when.  I do remember that these were in stores before the first Ford Mustang (1964 1/2).

Very creative to tie the Swiss Champ to the "Champ" of the robot contest!

They are available online.  I like it because it is a clip-on that I can easily put on and off my belt.  Also snap closure instead of Velcro.  It has elastic sides.  They come in various sizes.  The one pictures is the large size, and it fits the Swisschamp perfectly.  Cost around $9

Well it has to happen to us all at some point i guess, 30 years late to the party but i just got my first Champ so this will be my first ever Swisschamp Sunday  :salute:
Fluted corkscrew, thin pliers with no crimper, scissor screw and no hook so by all accounts one of the earlier ones, really happy with it although its smaller than i imagined, i got it into my head they were big unwieldy beasts but not so, in reality its not much bigger than my normal edc Explorer, will add it to the rotation and see how i get on with it.
The scales are new, i put them on along with new pen, t and t, i kept the original scales though for purist reasons, in case i ever want it back to original  :tu:
So, for the first time ever..Happy Swisschamp Sunday everyone  :cheers:

Thanks everyone, carried it today and used it a couple of times, i am having second thoughts about the scales though, i'm thinking to reinstall the original ones although they will have to be glued this time as they were hanging off anyway, i just removed them to clean them and decided to go with the jelly..manufacture date for them is '86 so its safe to say they are originals, i think they should go back on after a polish, will probably do that after i played with the champ for a few weeks :tu:

My Stayglow Swisschamp helped me out with some projects around the house this morning.  Now it’s riding shotgun at the office while I catch up on some work I missed being out with a sick 2-year-old last week.

I know Peacent carries other m/t's  with his Swisschamp, but does anyone else?  I'm in the Buck 110 Challenge, and have to switch my 110 to my back pocket when  belt carry the Swisschamp or another multitool.  I'm sure this has made the topic list before, but I was thinking about it today.

Forgot this one...it's thinner, I thought it was a Champion, it's just that the pliers are narrower:

First start in months, with a new carb and after sorting out the timing which was 180 degrees out. other than that. good result!

Bear in mind it's road legal and is running around 200bhp at the rear wheel, before it was made road legal it would run a 1/4 at around 8.6. She's pretty highly strung lol (a lot like my ex)

I never change on Sundays, it's always the Swisschamp. I hold it dear to my heart because it was the SAK I inherited from my Grandpa  :salute:

Happy Swisschamp Sunday!  It just occurred to me that the majority of Swisschamp Sunday participants are doing the Challenge at the other extreme of the SAK scale!
