Great pic, Douglas! :like:

And, since you brought it up. Thank you for initiating this challenge, Douglas. :cheers:

Not sure why, but I had felt you would get a kick out of the TT. It is one of the top unique designs in MT history. Glad you're enjoying using it for the challenge. :)

And thank you to everyone who is in the challenge and following. It has been a fun and different challenge.  :woohoo:

Day 21

Used the main blade for a little food prep, definitely not my favourite option in the kitchen, but outdoors it would be fine  :cheers:

That looks a funny way of using the knife with those handles  :think:

It is awkward, about the same as a Swisschamp, but I find it worse with the handles opened extending past my wrist  :dunno:

Glad it did work, Greg! :like:

Day 21:

Used the scraper to remove gunk from the sideboard I've been working on, the big driver to remove and reinstall the hardware, and the little driver to open and close the drawers with the hardware off.

Me as well. Great for those jobs when you don't want to chip the blade doing something like scraping paint off.


Nothing again today; although I did test the cutters on a piece of CAT-5E cable that made up an old Ethernet cable that no longer worked; it didn't cut it too cleanly; but then again, hardly anything but actual cutters struggles to cut it.   

I put some stuff in the closet, and decided to photograph it with the 1980s Camillus USA MKII "Kabar" that typically resides on my pack in the Kabar polymer sheath (I still have the orignal leather one, except the original owner of this knife had sharpened the swedge, and it was causing the blade to start wearing through the leather).  It's not a very practical blade for general use (the 3.5" blade on the average Mora is more practical for that), but for heavy jobs, I can't say there's a better knife. I didn't mean to buy it. I was looking for a reasonably sized hunting knife with a leather washer handle. I saw this one for $25, made an offer for $20; and the seller agreed. I've had it for 2 years, treated it rough, and it still comes through.

Interesting thing on this is the knurling/texture on the handle. Haven't seen another like it. Don't know if it was a prototype or a homemade job.

It was one of the few times I remembered there was a scraper on the TT. Like you said, very handy! :cheers:

Daaaaaannnng, Douglas. That's a flippin' dump right there. It looked like a huge EDC, then I saw you added the BOCD. That is Batman level preparedness, my friend! :like:
