Nice. I think they make some beautiful traditionals.

They do. Mentally I've spent a fortune browsing their trads on that site!

Day 5

It was an exciting day as the Huntsman and 2021 Limited Edition Classic I bought last week arrived today. The PX awl came in handy once again to open up the packaging. The Huntsman is going into my hiking bag, but I'm not quite sold on the Alox Classic. The orange is a beautiful color and I'm amazed at how thin it is, but since the PX is with me, I plan on keeping my cellidor Classic on my keychain to have the tweezer and toothpick handy. I'm not much of a collector of limited editions, so I'll most likely sell the Alox Classic if my opinion doesn't change in the next few days.

I know what you mean about keeping the classic on the keychain. But you are right about that orange - I think it’s my favourite of the LE yearly colours so far

Day 6


I have a cat with a heart condition.  She takes two medications, one of which is 1/4 of a human Atenolol tablet.
She happily takes her medicine if I pack it into something called a Pill Pocket, basically a kitty treat.
For those with sharp eyes/curious, that's an Opinel #6 in the photo.  I usually do the pill cutting with the Opinel.  It's a little better at the task given the thinner blade, but it can't do all the other tasks that a SAK is capable of doing.

Opened up a new SAK case that arrived earlier. That will probably be it for the day, not a lot going on away from the work laptop.



*Also showing off a fancy new paracord pendant

DAY 7
Back to work and one of my first face to face meetings in a year.

Not a lot for the PX to do but I reckon I can use the inline awl as reminder of how to get to the point. Hah! No? Jeepers, tough crowd, although even I have to admit my material needs work... I haven’t been out in a year, give me a break!

Not a lot happening today but always handy to have a pair of scissors when the dog thinks he needs a reward ...

Day 8

Low use today - was working most of the day. But tonight have an online beer or two arranged with my local micro brewery via zoom... so all the PX has done today is open a crate of new beer ready for most to go in the fridge ...

No uses during the day. At night, helping save my fingernails opening the beer for the last virtual pub session before actually being able to go back to the pub...
