Nice!  It's a good thing I can't gain weight from the pictures of food in these threads.  :rofl:

Day 6.
Had some 95 paracord that needed cutting.  The Executive scissors did a good job, but I actually like using 58mm scissors.

Day 7

I've used these shorts in a few reviews, to test scissors, serrated blades and cord cutters. I had purposefully left the side pockets intact, and today, I thought I'd make something.
I trimmed the excess fabric and folded it behind the pocket, to make a big pocket.


The pocket was made with three pieces of fabric, so I used the preexisting seams as guides to divide the pocket into three narrow pockets. Perfect for three long tools. :cheers:


I also sewed two belt loops on the back, but I forgot to take a picture of those.
RangerGrip for illustration purposes only.
So now I have a small homemade dump pouch, which has pockets for a few tools.

I forgot all about Mora knives, probably because I collect them and don't use them.  I should buy a set specifically to use.
:iagree: I have a Mora that's a user, and it's excellent. Sadly, it doesn't get used much, as it's too big a hassle (if not outright illegal) to carry in the city.

Why not go all the way and put on full chain mail armor? This way you will be protected against all eventualities, including a bunch of Swiss army knights raiding your home :rofl:
Can't say it did never cross my mind, but not for the purpose of carving.  That's another story entirely. :whistle:


:oops: I forgot all about Mora knives, probably because I collect them and don't use them.  I should buy a set specifically to use.

And thank you all who have admired my first spoon, I appreciate it.  :cheers:
:cheers:
Just another friendly suggestion, I think it depends on where you are and whether it cost effective too.  If Flexcut is a US company, it may cost more to get them in Europe(look at the crazy pricing of LM tools in Europe) or vice versa.


I'm a honey man.
That's a good call too! :D


Day 6
Opening some fresh coffee for breakfast at the campsite.  :salute:
Always admire campers that do take their coffee seriously.   :hatsoff:

Time to open up another bag of coffee beans for breakfast, the scissors doing the honours….. they really are great to use!

Rules:
 
➢  On 7 December, please post a shot of your Executive along with a “parting glass”. ( Does not have to be alcohol, but it shouldn’t be empty. )
