Day 15

The Mini Champ opened some post and the Classic opened dinner. I'm looking at some of the other uses and thinking I need to find something a bit more innovative over the second half of the challenge!

Day 15:

Sorry for the blurry shot.....although, given the subject matter, there is some ironic humor to be seen....





The Esquire has been rather busy this morning, but my camera has not. Aside from opening an envelope with some replacement Fresnel lens ( the one in my wallet tends to get grimy and worn. ), the Esquire's nail file tool was used to pop open the drain cover in the garage. The scissors were used to snip a wayward tendril from a pea plant. And the knife was used to breakdown a box that Mrs Nix no longer needed.

Can't wait to see what the afternoon brings......  :rofl:

Day 15. Received an unexpected parcel from an old friend I'd lost touch with. Executive helped open the package.
Sweet.  I've got one of those, in red.  It was actually my first SAK.  My wife bought it for me many, many years ago.

Day 15.
Half way marker.
Had to give the canine fur babies their flea/tick meds, today.  Their meds cost almost as much as me. Oh well, MC to the rescue.

So far today the Executive has been unhelpful in removing a rusted on gate from my parent's house. In its stead:

-Angle grinder

-hacksaw

-Screrw driver

-Claw hammer

And the most important tool of all, blunt force and a disregard for personal safety  :salute:

Swapped keychains out for the Space Vacuum Classic and ran some errands.  We had to replenish the salt in the water softener system, so Classic to the rescue!  To be honest, I'm finding that the Classic is doing everything I need keychain tool wise, without the extra bulk.  I do love that ballpoint pen in the mighty Minichamp!
I did have to resort to the Opinel No. 9 to cut a banana mega muffin in half.  The Classic just didn't have the reach.  That being said, the 58's are still more than enough for 95% of my daily jobs.

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

That reminds me I have to replenish my supply of salt for our water softener; just one bag left!

Sweet.  I've got one of those, in red.  It was actually my first SAK.  My wife bought it for me many, many years ago.

I’ve never seen one in the flesh and this really is a very kind gesture from a childhood friend I got back in contact with recently. He happened to mention he’d picked up a few SAKs in some trading and asked me about them. I’m really touched tbh. Now all I need is some Champ challenge or some such to get involved in …

Day 15

Opened a bag of mandarins for me and a case of dog food for Louie, the Cocker Spaniel you all met yesterday.

We'll both be quite happy later.

For Day 15, I swapped out for the mighty Minichamp.  For illustrative purposes, I wanted to show the different ways that the cuticle pusher would come in handy.  One way is as a fine straight edge screwdriver.
I agree with Barry about using the cuticle pusher for slot-head screws. I've been doing that for a long time. The screws holding the handles on to Mrs. P's cooking pots work loose occasionally and the Mini Champ is perfect for tightening them up. And it's always in my pocket!

This appears to be a helpful corollary to the advice of never needing a can opener on a backpacking trip by avoiding canned goods entirely.

I wonder if I should continue to get full use out of the Classic SD by switching my ... err... beverages.... to cans instead of bottles....   :whistle:

This challenge just got a lot harder, because this one is just begging to be carried and used.

The SD classic handles bottles just fine. You just have to have faith. (And a little technique helps.)

Don't get too serious, just enough will do.
