Swisschamp Sunday making lunch for the kids. I’ve made a habit of using pliers for pulling the small pan and rack out of the toaster oven. And my can openers have gotten more work than ever opening canned fruits were doing for the kids school lunches. Opinel #6 for  slicing apples and chicken nuggets.

Where's everyone at on this fine Sunday?!

It's finally Stormy Kromer weather here in Western Montana. Open burn opened up here today, too, so we burned off all of the sticks and limbs that have accumulated over the summer. Roasted some marshmallows with the kids once we had some good coals.

     I don't have a SwissChamp, but I do have two Huntsman Vics that I have rubber-banded together.  Maybe that will be close enough.  I didn't take a picture.  It was just too sad.  Best wishes.  G

If you have some 2, 3, and 4-layer 91mm SAKs, then you may as well bypass knives with 5 to 7 layers and get a Swisschamp.  There actually aren't very many extant in the 5-7 category.  Ranger, Handyman, a few oddball models...  Anything 5 layer and above is getting pretty big to carry in a hip pocket anyway, so might as well get a SwissChamp and get all the tools.

(On the other hand with the Delemonts I find myself stopping at the 5-layer S557.  There are a couple bigger ones but the added tools don't seem worth it to me, particularly since I have a SwissChamp.)

   I will admit that my do-it-yourself  Champion thingy isn't perfect but it is a good interim solution.  The rubber connecting modules do make opening the tools a little difficult, but other the other hand... BOY... can you close them fast. 
   My work on the full-scale model has been put on hold for now.  I am currently mulling over the idea of a homemade Minichamp.  It will utilize three different 58mm models and probably use glue instead of the pesky rubber bands.  Hopefully it will be perfected in time for the November Minichamp challenge that I foolishly signed up for.  Best wishes.

Roasted some marshmallows with the kids once we had some good coals.
How can you roast marshmallows with coals?  The proper way to roast a marshmallow is to place it in a flame, let it catch fire, blow out the fire on the marshmallow, and then eat it.

Luckily my kids don't discriminate when it comes to marshmallows. They will eat them "raw" and burnt to a crisp and everything in between. My wife on the other hand, thinks she is a marshmallow connoisseur and has to have them the perfect shade of golden brown only achieved with a bed of hot coals.

I've got a large rodent problem, and I am not sure how to solve it. Permanent solutions can't be used due to being in city limits and on a reservation with game regulations. I'm thinking wire around the tree, but that won't protect the roots well.

I'm thinking live traps here.  If they come at night, then just put traps out in the dark and don't tell anybody what you are doing.  Pick them back up in the morning.  My second suggestion would be a dog.  Best wishes.  G

I put cayenne pepper all over the tree and dirt where it was coming out of the water. That seemed to keep it away for a night but then was back the next. I may call the tribal game wardens today and see if they have a trapper or someone that can help without getting myself in trouble.

Yes hot peper may work. Peeled cloves of garlic in their homes may make them move. At least no vampire problems- it's that time of year you know!  :whistle:

The only problem is that I assume their lodge and dam is down stream from our place on private property. I don't have access to it or I'd bug them until they left.

Sounds like you probably have a solution already.  If you are on good terms with the tribal authorities, they know someone who will solve your beaver problem.  Beavers chewed up a bunch of bark on trees around the river here, but moved on or died out.  Who knows?   The river was too big to build any lodges on.   They damaged some.  They moved on.  Best wishes.  G

It’s Sunday in Germany, so this is a Picture of mine whit the Swiss Cliq attached to it ..
I had this Clip now a few weeks on, and im quite happy whit it, its stick quite secure to my leg pocket of my Pants, and the only tool that gets harder to pull is the Tweezers, they need the small Glasses Screwdriver to swirls out of the Korkscrew but thanks to the fact, its a Swisschamp, you can get the Packet Hook quite easy out ..

Sure Swisschamp whit Clip might sound strange, but i have clipped it on the side of the Pocket, not on front..

Your SAK is only fully yours, when it bites you, or you opend a Trink of your joice whit it
SAKs i have: Huntsman Light (Red Transparent), Workchamp (Black), Wenger EvoGrip S557 (Red), Swisschamp XLT (Red Transparent)..
