Add me to the list!  I'm not man enough for the Soldier Challenge, so I have nothing but time.

OK, voting is closed.

The majority of you said that you're Champions every month, with March being a distant second. January and February got only 1 vote each.

So March it is for the Challenge of Champions!

One addition to the challenge rules: If you have multiple Champions, you're welcome to rotate through them during the challenge.

This gives you 6 months to train and plan your strategies for the challenge.   :D

If any of you have the original six-layer Champion, I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Thank you all for participating. This will be fun!

It's just weird how things work out some times...

I posted the comment above on Thursday, September 2nd.

On the very next morning, I went into a junk shop I'd never been into before and what did they have for sale? A six-layer Champion "a". You can see a few photos and read some about it in this thread:
Requesting help with dating a vintage SAK - Champion "a"
https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,88047.0.html

I'm excited to have both an "a" and a "c" now!   :D

I get the feeling that I used up all of my SAK-finding luck for this month.   :(

Once I replace the missing scissors spring, it will be ready for use during the challenge!

This sounds like a good one. I'd be in if I thought I could have a Champion in my hands by the start date.

As we get ready for the challenge next month, how about some Champion stories?

For me, a Champion was my first SAK, received as a gift from my parents in 1983. This was before MacGyver premiered so I don't remember now why I wanted a SAK. But want one I did and it had to be the biggest one.

I still have it, though I don't use it regularly because of the sentimental value. But I'm bringing it out of retirement for the challenge. It will feel good using it again.

I've spent the last 3 weeks fighting off a well known virus. Plenty of time between coughing fits to get the champions cleaned up and sharpened. I believe I'm ready! :woohoo:
