yeah, that's the large badge and the serrations are barely visible. I'll work on it at a later date. Too bad I will not be getting it myself. :-\

Here I am!

I was thinking that the challenge could involve any knife or multitool that has a Combo edge blade.  One or more tools would be at the participant's discretion.  If you want to use one or a combo of more than one it's up to you.  If you want to make one aspect of the challenge an initial choice of which tool would work best for you for the whole month, in the spirit of the Jack of All Trades and Master of None purpose of the combo edge blade, that's fine.  If you want to put several of your combo edge knives and multitools through their paces, thats fine too. 

I also envision that if you wanted to choose a multitool that has a combo edge blade (E.g. Signal or Skeletool) you wouldn't be required to use the blade itself for all 30 days.  Using a screwdriver or pliers would count as a daily usage of the tool you chose that has a combo edge blade.  It's just that if you needed to use a blade, you would have to make do with the combo edge, with all it's pros and cons. If you choose a knife with a combo edge, like a Spyderco, you'd have no option but to post a picture of that combo edge blade in use each day - which should be fine for you if you are going in with a folding knife.  One of the things we like to do is think about which tool would work best for us in most (or all) scenarios.  The same can be done here, as long is the tool has a partially serrated blade.   

I think I will be doing the Challenge with a Skeletool KBx, so I will have only a knife and a bottle opener.  I also have a regular Skeletool and a 111mm Vic, and I might use the Victorinox for part of the challenge. But it's quite likely I'll be doing the whole month with the KBx.  For me - my EDC almost always has scissors.  Since I don't have a tool with a combo edge and scissors, the scissors are out of the picture for me.  This leaves me with the three aforementioned choices.  Without scissors, I think I will lean towards the smaller knife that is on the Skeletool, but since I still have little to no use of pliers, I'll probably go for the KBx instead of the fully functional one.  I might go with a Victorinox Nomad, but I'm leaning toward the Skeletool KBx due to half the tools at less than half the size... still just a thought though. 

I'm very excited that we're able to get enough participants to have our own badge - this way everyone can get to choose if they stick with one tool, or switch between tools - since either way, you'll get the badge. 

 :cheers:

Excellent. You're back  :drink:  :woohoo: and thanks for the clarification  :tu:

I'll be using the MP600 for work based stuff and the others for non-work stuff  :think:

As for badge design..... :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh (good work RP  :salute:)

How about a minimalist design?
A subtle combo edge.
I had a similar idea. Nicely done. :cheers:

I just realized my old Benchmade 940 has a combo edge.  I think this will be the perfect reason to dig it out.

The 940 is an iconic knife.  That would be great.

Hi all  :salute:

I'm back from much-needed break, gearing up for this challenge.  Thank you all for keeping it alive in my absence.  And thank you SurgeUK for the message - I did receive it, but it took me until today to get logged back in because somehow the server wouldn't send me the necessary email to recover my password.  Anyway.  We're here now.

I'll be joining you awl in the challenge, but I will be away from my computer for almost a week in the middle fo February. In case I can't post in real-time, I will catch up as soon as I can for the 30 days. 

Looking forward to the Combo Edge Challenge!

Sorry EB I have no idea how I missed this response  :dunno:  ::)

Day 01
Today I selected a first gen Myerchin Titanium rigging knife model 377P.  It is 3/4 serrated with the non-serrated portion towards the tip of the blade.  I used it to open a box of cat litter.

Powernoodle Day 1


Spyderco Resilience Lightweight.  4.2" (107mm) 8Cr13MoV blade, 4.4 oz (125 grams).  The relatively large expanse of plain edge is good for push cutting envelopes, peeling apples, etc., while the serrated portion rips through packing straps, tape, rope, etc.

The Signal is one of the best Leatherman Tools these days, I think.  I can think of a thousand times in the past that I could have used the hammer on the end, instead of the frame of my Leatherman Wave.  :facepalm:

Nice!  I was really hoping to see the BuckTool in the mix.  A friend of mine still has this as his only pliers based MT

Glad to see the dedicated folder in the fray - seems to be more common in the wild, and nearly all the new stuff at ShotShow and BladeShow is a folder. 

Day 01
Today I selected a first gen Myerchin Titanium rigging knife model 377P.  It is 3/4 serrated with the non-serrated portion towards the tip of the blade.  I used it to open a box of cat litter.

Rigging knives are a great shape for EDC... sheepfoot blades in general.  The tip of the blade is directed at a forward angle, which makes it great for piercing into boxes and such


Off to a great start!

I'll post mine in about 10 hours from now, still within Day1 for me.

Day 1

The knife that got it all started.  Its been about 20 years that I've had this knife.  It was the first one that I bought that I put a lot of thought behind.  I thought that this would be a great all-rounder, good for cutting and scraping, and ....  :dwts: ... even tightening some screws in a pinch.  Turns out, it's rubbish for tightening screws... who'd've thunk it?  But it's excellent at tearing thought things, and it's tough as nails. 

I'll be using this for the first 10 days of the challenge.

Today's use was to put a nick in an orange peel, to get it going.  That's about it so far.

Day 2 of  :dunno:

I chose the Stanley FatMax today and used the combo blade to cut a nylon rope. It did okay, but I did need to make a second pass due to the shortness of the blade:



You can find more pictures of the Stanley FatMax and its sibling, the Dewalt MT16, in this thread from Chako:
