MP 30 Day Challenge
« on: September 04, 2020, 08:54:51 PM »
I recently got the bladeless MP600 and so far I am really liking it. I am also in the mood for a challenge, so why not do one with it. Also helps that there is a nice, pretty badge to be earned  :D

If someone else would join me, I‘d love to have company  :cheers:

Here is the MP600 I will be using throughout the challenge:

I have a MP400 which I really like, and I've been wanting to do a 30 day challenge with it. I am doing the Nessmuk challenge now, so I can't join. Good luck and enjoy! :cheers:

Day 1

We went to a near state park this morning. Very nice area, but some people just can‘t take their trash to the trash can  >:(
So the MP600 helped clean up some of the mess:



I have to admit, with Covid and all i like to have pliers on me for picking up stuff you don‘t want to touch.

I don’t have an MP, but I’ll be watching for your opinions because I have been thinking about getting a bladeless MP600 since I got one for my nephew.

Sounds good! I am curious as well and looking forward to test it. I already used the saw exchanger the last couple days, I hope it will see some more use  :tu:

Day 1 Update


Large screwdriver and bottle opener tip to do vacuum maintenance.


Scissors to open a package. Normally I would use a blade, but since this doesn‘t have one I used what I had on hand.


Pliers to disassemble a squeeze bottle

Only used the scissors today to open some packages while cooking. Boring day for the tool I am afraid  ;)

Another pic of it outside  :hatsoff:

Day 3

Walking the dogs again. Used the scissors to cut some loose threads on my backpack. Carried the US-1 for the blade.



Came across this guy today:

Day 3 Update

Used the wire cutters to trim the stems of artificial flowers my wife wanted to use for a wreath. The stems are made of wire, coated with plastic. The MP600 got the job done.  :tu:

A word on the inside tools. I was worried that it would drive me crazy that I have to open the pliers every time I need one of those tools. Surprisingly that is not the case at all yet.

The flick of the wrist, sliding the pliers into position, is a very satisfying experience. I tried to come up with a way to describe it. It is like working in a shop, and you just drove a nice Oldtimer to your workstation. You look at it, admiring it and then you open your toolbox and get to work. Similar to that. And yes, I know I am weird  :P
The flipping handles on a Spirit or a Rebar just don‘t give me the same satisfaction  :dunno: Anyone else have a similar experience?

I also think it could come in handy. For example, have a screwdriver deployed on one end, and the pliers on the other end. You can go back and forth between the two without having to adjust the tool.

I enjoy the fidget factor of my multi-tools. I do not care about the Rebar's or MP400's tools being on the inside. I enjoy opening the handles, I do not mind the clumping, I like the snap, and the tools work properly once opened.  :cheers:

I'm a fan of Gerber's one hand openning tools.
The "fidgetiest" IMHO is the Gerber Flik.
My MP400 is nice too. Like the size/weight of the tool.

Unfortunately Gerbers are pretty hard to find in my country.

Yes, I can share your experience; as a matter of fact, I flick the pliers as if they were a fidget!!!
I also do not have a problem with inside tools; in fact, I prefer them like that as it protects the tools, channel, and pivot from debris when carried in pocket or when they fall off to sand, mud, and from ground metal when left on worktable ( although not as good as the PST's  at this!). I also like that's an intermediate size between MP400/Wave and the likes of the Super Tool 300. With this particular model, I really enjoy that I can use any blade that I like/need, and still be able to carry it into buildings/places where knives or blades are frowned upon.

Good luck on your challenge; I'm enjoying your thoughts, opinions and pictures!!! :tu:

Day 4

Another picture from our regular morning walk:



We also continued work on the wreath we started last night. My wife actually grabbed the MP herself to do the cutting. Normally she just rolls her eyes when I hand her a MT. This time she even grabbed it herself. Strange times we live in  :D :think:
Also used the scissors to trim some of the smaller stuff.

I used the Phillips to tighten the handles of a nightstand:

Day 5

Did some wood working today and needed to sharpen my pencil. Since the MP600 is bladeless I switched to the US1 to get the job done. Sorry for the poor focus  :facepalm:



I used the Phillips of the MP600 to replace a sanding disc:
