I'm awlso enjoying it. The electronics have many more functions than those on my Altimeter!

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

Thanks Jazz & Farmer X, Day 23 -  Timer - toggle Victorinox emblem (button) 5 times past  the time screen and the timer screen is displayed. Press and hold button 2 seconds to start timer. Press button 2 seconds while it is running to stop timer or an additional 2 seconds to reset. Not ideal as a stop watch since it only goes to the nearest second and takes 2 seconds to stop, but works as a timer nonetheless.

Day 25 - Toothpick -  Victorinox has made several versions through the years and four colors to choose from now. I have used RIT dye with success as well. This is an older version I like. Works for teeth cleaning or any crevice, open other tools on knife with head of toothpick, open zip ties and survival fishing hook.

Wish you luck with that mission Farmer X. Curious how many you will find? Day 26 - Tweezers -  use them to pull or remove small things such as splinters, thorns or ticks, nail guide (prevent trauma to fingers with hammer), bookmark, radio antenna for a cell phone, magnify to make compass, or as a security pin.

Of 20 toothpicks I've gone through (18 in knives and two old ones used for cleaning and light scraping), two have been the hooked type.

I never thought of such uses for the tweezers. The nail guide is a particularly good idea.

Day 27 - Ink Pen - Blue pressurized ink pen, use under universal hook for better grip, while under universal hook open main blade to create a caliper-compass, use with fish scaler to mark off distances, security pin or even a “promotion” tool to toggle small electronic switches.
