Day 30

For nostalgic reasons I opened a parcel with the small blade.  It's my favorite and most used tool on the Champ.  Normally none of the SAKs that I carry - Compact, PioneerX, Soldier - don't have a small blade.  I've had a few traditional folders, and the small blade on those always felt right to me. Even before, and well after those days, I have found the small blade on the 91mm models to be the right tool for a lot of jobs. 

 :SAKnight:

Over the last month, I have been keeping track of how many times I use the Phillips or the Corkscrew - to try to answer the age-old question.  Which is more useful.
This was a bit of an unusual month, to say the least.  I didn't go outdoors, or do the things I normally would.  That said, I expected to use the corkscrew more - and indeed I did.  I use the corkscrew for non-cork related things in general.  this month I opened two jars, and a bottle of wine.  Opening jars was a recent discovery for me, courtesy of MTo, and it's worked great.  I'll have wine with the appropriate sort of meal on occasion, usually with friends in unexpected places, and so it does come in handy for that too.  If I'm honest though, the corkscrew frustrates me since it doesn't have a lever arm like "modern" or dedicated ones do. I've considered getting a LM Juice or a Gerber Armbar Cork for that reason, but the trade off doesn't seem worth it.  For now I'll just grunt and sweat, and stabilize the bottle between my knees, pulling with all my might.  The scene usually turns my friends off to the idea of sharing the wine, and there's plenty more for me

How many times did you use the Corkscrew (CS) or the Phillips Screwdriver (PSD) during the challenge?

I hope I listed everyone in the challenge here.  I filled in a few tallies when I was able to see them easily, and will try to update slowly as I can go through all the posts.  If you'd like, please fill yours in

Corkscrew twice, by only in deployment of the fine screwdriver stored onboard.  Phillips, twice. The big slotted driver, can opener SSD and back technician driver, once each.

Sorry Cody....   :oops:

I'd definitely count the small SD as a Corkscrew use.  It's an excellent reason to have the Corkscrew on board.... if you know you're more likely to use the small SD instead of the Phillips,

I didn't keep track of exactly how many times I used each, but I'm guessing I used the corkscrew once maybe twice, but the Phillips was used quite a bit on battery doors, electronic equipment, etc...  They both have their place and time when I'm glad I have 'em.   Although - I'm now waiting on the Champion to be repaired where I broke off the tip of the corkscrew.   :-\

@ElevenBlade  Thank you for the write up!  SC was a generous gift to me since young, and it too has been everywhere with me for most of my life.  Though my days for camping is far and few in between, I would love to bring it along next time to experience the joy of using it once again. :like:

For myself, here is the usage during the challenge:
corkscrew: /
phillips: / / /

No better way to end a challenge, cheers! :drink:

That's an interesting conclusion, a new found love for 91mm pliers? :climber:

Especially now that I'm back into model trains, big time. Regular MT pliers don't work too well; most keychain pliers (aside from the LM Squirt EL; which I'm also finding handy with this job due to having small electrical strippers instead of pliers) have undersized tools, but the SAK pliers are robust for harder pulling, and are small and long enough to fit anywhere I need them to. The CT34's driver doesn't really fit anything Marklin has, so I figure shaving that layer off will make it a bit easier to just have a Deluxe Tinker in my pocket. The CT41  I've wanted for ages. Seems Marklin isn't of much interest to US enthusiasts, so for about the price of a starter set ($125 or so, by my math), I have two locomotives (one works fine, other screams like a banshee; not sure what's going on), 3 coaches, 3 boxcars (including one for beer; which I use as an example to my folks that trains aren't necessarily a kid's thing; and Marklin loves to do beer cars), a flat car, a gondola, a wreck crane, a huge amount of track, and some other accessories (my last lot included some trees, as well as some lights I learned I can't wire to my existing transformer),  . But that doesn't include the transformer I bought years ago, and now I'm bidding on a more powerful transformer that can support a big layout, switches, decouplers, and basically anything I need.

I didn't use the pliers on the SAK for the challenge...  But thinking about it during the month,  I can certainly see them coming in handy where you just need a little extra grip to unfasten or pull where your fingertips just aren't cutting it.   It actually made me re-think my keychain carry - maybe swap out the LM Micra for a Gerber Dime since the SAK scissors on my main carry are better than either one of those.

I have a high school friend long, long time ago who was into railroad modeling, and I did recall Marklin was one of the brands he would go to.  The attention to details is absolutely amazing, and with that much tracks, trees, lights and even the crane, I bet you probably could build a set that could rival most toy store display.


@ElevenBlade, my prediction of of phillips vs corkscrew is that--most folks will probably see more use for inline phillips, if both are presented in the same chassis. 
But if given the choice to choose between the two, the past surveys did show more people would favor corkscrew.  It is an interesting phenomenon, and even I used more phillips in this challenge, I too would probably still favor corkscrew.  Because I might be able to get by with a can opener for impromptu phillips job 50% of the time, but without the corkscrew, it's a total party pooping situation.

Indeed it's a bit of a false equivalence, because we have the in-line Phillips, which folks like better than the backspring varietal.   But like you, I'm a sucker for data and this seemed like a good opportunity.   :drink:
