Awesome use.
That type of humor just adds a great element
The Rebar battles a bit with too much liquid  so I have to help often .  There can be a bit of rust or stickiness so it is better I solve the  problem. It stops my throat getting too dusty as well .

Day 30!



The Raptor has been the MVP this challenge. I’m glad to move back to using blades.

Day 30 of 30

Last day and today my Rebar was used fully, all tools was today needed, everything else except eyeglass was used while installing furnitures and eyeglass driver was used to tighten my eyeglasses.



This was probably most hardest challenge so far cause i couldnt use blades, needed to improvise most cases where i normally use blades. Now abused my work scissors more than ever also my SwissChamps awl and scissors was used but probably used my work scissors so much that i may need new pair. 
I have Fiskars PowerArc as my work scissors, on this challenge i used scissors more than ever, only  downside on is scissors is that it cannot yet fully replace blades while cutting felt-covered roof cause cannot cut it when it is in place.

Day 30
I just realized it is the last of the challenge. 
The YeoCho continued to prove valuable.

The YeoCho scissors helped cut open a plastic mail bag.  The scissors also helped to cut some velcro to create a patch panel on one of my old bags so I could display some of my patches.

I used the YeoCho mini-driver for tightening the nose piece on my sunglasses.

I did need to use the saw of the Farmer X to cut some twigs, but the blade was not used.


It has been a fun challenge, but definitely challenging.  As much as I like the YeoCho and its toolset,I will enjoy getting back to using and carrying my knives.  Yes, knives plural.  Some may think no one needs a knife, and I agree because everyone should have multiple for various purposes.

This is a good response. I was going to try to photoshop a GIF of a Leatherman guzzling beer, but it sounds like too much work.

Okay, this will do, and it was more fun anyway. Consider this the missing picture from my post yesterday, too.

The Zip Hex doing it's thing, and helping me swap out my computer mount with this computer mount I've superglued a bell under (bells are required by law here, so I may as well stick it under the mount instead of cluttering up my bars.).


One of the best Gerber tools. That isn't a snark — I like the Zip Hex about as much as the Shard, which is quite a bit.

I went into this challenge thinking it would be simple, and, for the most part, easy.

Honestly, I was right.

I'm quite used to carrying a clasp knife (sometimes a Wenger or Ruike, but usually a Victorinox), and there were definitely many, many things I could have done faster with a knife in my pocket, but necessity is the mother of invention. I can 100% see how a person could just not bother carrying a bladed tool on them — if you're unlikely to need it, why bother?

That said, I'm going right back to carrying one, though it may sometimes be a more diminutive model than before (depending on my activity, obviously.)


The sheet on which I drew all my silly headings.

So, challenge accepted, and challenge conquered. Good job, everyone here. We were all likely outside of our comfort zone for a whole thirty days, and we're probably better people for it.

Hello day 30.
Last day of a bit of a hard month. The blade was missed but we survived.
Thanks to the team for interesting pics.
My last pic has a blade  in it but not used today.  This will be my EDC for the next month I think.
Well done the Rebar.
 :cheers:

I have a very high opinion of the Rebar, so I'm not at all surprised the knifeless one did well by you this month.

How do we go about requesting our badge? I don’t see the Bladeless badge in the Available Awards.

I'm carrying a Pioneer X today, and it feels weird being able to just cut stuff again. It's kind if surreal
