     I was going to post a photo of my homemade Swiss Champ substitute, but one of the rubber bands broke and I didn't have a spare.  Maybe next Sunday?  Best wishes Gary

For years I resisted the SwissChamp.  They were too heavy, too thick, they were more of a show piece than a working knife, etc.  Then I got one and discovered that they are a Rosetta Stone for the 91mm SAKs.  Nearly every other model is a subset of this one.  With this you get a view of the entire line.  A marvelous knife for a shoulder bag or belt pouch and even occasionally in a pocket.

We are thinking on parallel lines here, BT.  Maybe I will acquire one of these someday.  Pocket carry is the only game in town for me though.  I wear a belt pack when I am outside working or making a trip to the mail box (which is rather a long way off).  Naturally I could plunk a big SAK into that pack.  I am trying to carry a Leatherman with the pack.  Just experimenting.  We will see.
Best wishes.  G

They are actually pretty inexpensive for what they are.  I got mine off the big site for $67 or something.  A lot of tools/buck.  Do I carry it around in my pocket?  No but I love having it on my desk. I like carrying an Executive or some other lightweight model like the Cadet, Evo 10, etc. in my pocket most of the time. When next I go on a road trip the SwissChamp will definitely be in my shoulder bag.

I have 2, one of which is always in my car.  When I travel I take the Swisschamp.  It's legal everywhere a knife is, and there's no end to what you can do with it.  Like the old saying goes: if you can't fix it with a Swisschamp, you can make the tool to fix it with a Swisschamp!

A day late with this post, but my Swiss Champ rode in my Lochby Venture pouch this weekend for a visit at my parents and deer hunting.

that's funny about the subset thing because I've always thought of the SwissChamp as just an Explorer but with more tools.

The Explorer Grande!  :rofl:

I'm not ready for this nonsense. We were only supposed to get 2-3 inches from Tuesday-Wednesday evening, but it started Tuesday night and snowed steady until Friday afternoon. We ended up with about 6 inches total. Yesterday morning was 2°F and this morning, when we left for church, it was 11°F which is typical January/February weather. Thankfully, we are supposed to back into the 40s this week so the kids won't freeze when we go trick or treating.

    Nice snow photo.  You need to get your knife out of it however.  That moisture is bad for it.  Very careless.  I still don't have a Champion so I can only join in full of hope and with empty pocket. 
    One of the fellas had a nice reconditioned Champion for sale in the Trade section.  Unfortunately he wanted to sell about a dozen knives along with it.  And upteen scales also.  Some day I will come into one.  A nice used one would be just fine.  Until then I will have to use my simulated SwissChamp.  The one I made. 
    Enjoy the snow (and the rain in NY).  It is warm and dry as a bone here.  Water restrictions in town actually.  I think I could walk across the Cullasaja River now without getting my knees wet.  You can see the old Cherokee fishing weirs when the water gets low enough.  Best wishes.  Gary

We picked up about an inch of rain here.  I was out in it for about 4 hours, and it wasn't hard but steady.  I definitely could live with 65 degrees F and sunny for the next few months  :rofl:  If you don't need the pliers, you can sometimes find deals on Champions.  With pliers, Swiss Champs are out there.  I love mine!

    Dry as powder here.  Woods have quite a fuel load.  People still burn leaves.  Yeow!  It was almost 80F today.  Lots of turkeys piddling around.  If I find someone with a Champion, then I might pull the string on one, Barry.  I have been enjoying the Spirit challenge posts.  Doing a good job there.  Still sick folks.  One member with all the kids sick.  I feel for the parents sitting up with sick kids.  Lots of nice photos.  Best wishes.  G

That sounds perfect to me Gary.  I always loved the climate in your neck of the woods.  I'm a big Swiss Champ fan.  It has pretty much everything I use day to day.  The Spirit is a great tool, just a different animal.  I have EDC's a Swiss Tool RS at work for years now.
 It's exactly what I need day to day in my job, although the ruler and the scissors probably see more use than anything else!

Love those turkeys!

Great thing about Fall.  I agree with those suffering under the flu bug or any ailments.  It's a rough time of the year for it.  It ran through our house too.

I had mine in my pocket this afternoon while I was mulching leaves. Never took a picture though. Was trying to beat the sun going down to get itndone before we get more rain and snow.
