Day 16
I used the classic to cut some paracord and some shockcord to make a bungee extension for Fishers leash.  I think the shockcord was really pushing the limits on the classic.  The scissors wouldn’t cut it so I used the blade, but it still was difficult, so after the first cut, I did switch to a 91mm that I normally use.

I also used the classic to cut some fatwood for my twig stove.  The classic did ok, but I was only able to get small shavings.  To get bigger shavings like what I usually use, I think a bigger blade would do better.

Cut some fresh peppermint for tea with the Classic.  Slow going, almost like grooming a Bonsai...

Uh...perhaps we should just be eating the standard, 58mm compatible, Banana Nut muffins?   :think:

If your mid-day snack requires a Chef's knife.....well.....what do your pants tell you....?   :think:
Isn’t part of the point of challenges to push the limits (within safety limits) of the tool.  Although, I can say there has been a couple instances where I have wondered if I was going to break my new classic before its pretty scales even get scuffed.

Day 16:


Used the nail file to open a jar of instant. A simple task, but one where a nice pocket knife that is quick to hand is something I appreciate. And this Esquire is a very nice little pocket knife.





A bit later I used the nail tool again, this time to open the top of a tin of alcohol (fuel).

At lunch, the Esquire's scissors came in handy when I needed to snip a bit of cilantro for my guacamole.





I used the chef's knife in the background to split open up the avocados used in the guacamole. I was annoyed with myself because I just grabbed the chef's knife to quickly slice them open. I didn't think to use the Esquire, which I am sure is perfectly capable of doing the job. I just wish I'd thought of it at the time. Time permitting, I'll try to use the Esquire to prep another avocado on another day.   :tu:

Your point is well taken.   :tu:

Which just begs the question..... Why was Barry shirking his challenge obligations and not pushing that Classic to its limits?   :rant:

And, if the muffin in question was capable of breaking his classic.... Well.... I'd suggest the smaller muffins at a different muffin shop!   :rofl:

Both the Classic and the extension look good!   :tu:
