We've always had a work clause with these types of challenges.
Meaning what you use for work doesn't count against you.
I would actually be interested in why one fits that role better...
Anyways the challenge is posting that daily pic so just do that yeah.
Of course if you don't care about getting a badge then do whatever for the fun of it, no need to miss out.

Looks like I'm back in then :tu: (with the orignal plan  :think: )

To answer one of your questions Zoid;

I need a heavy duty tool at work & the OG SwissTool is just that. I'd carry it for work EDC if it was OHO (like the new MXBS version*)

Obviously, I will post my trials & tribulations at the end of the challenge  ;)

* I'll probably get one anyway but they're out of stock (in the UK) at the moment and it's £205
  :o

So, these are my only options (so far  :whistle:)

The SwissTool will be for work (Bigger, Heavy Duty)

The MXBS will be for home (Smaller, Light Duty)

The Bit-Kit will have to be used at home/off duty as carrying to/from work will be more hassle than it's worth  ::)

Just ordered the "Big Boy" (SwissTool MXBS) to join the Spirit version as it was looking lonely  :whistle:

It should be here in time for the challenge  :dunno:

I don't forsee any large projects, so it might be cutting-food kind of challenge, but I am in. Love the Spirit  :cheers:

I ordered it on the 8th & it arrived on the 13th (at the office of Mrs Surge)

It took a bit longer than stated but not bad  :think:

Surge that's nice!!  I agree with you on the scissors.  I love the Spirit, but it would be a tough choice for me if I had to pick only one  :think:

Clear winner for me is the Spirit despite the scissors. The Swisstool is too heavy for EDC and the pliers are uncomfortable to use. But that's only me  :D

Well I read about those scissors all the time and yep they do feel kinda different and not as impressive at a first glance, but seem to do the job just as good at least. Since I only finally got my Spirit recently I’m really looking forward to give it’s scissors a decent assessment during our challenge

One thing that I'll definitely say for the Spirit is that it's every bit as rugged as its big brother.  The scissors are different but they're serviceable.  It's almost like Vic had a heavier duty purpose in mind for them.

Heck Barry I'm tempted but I'd want to rotate between my Spirit and my SwissTool. Oh gosh what a dilemma ! :facepalm:

I'd love to have you Phil!  Initially, that's what I had in mind for this challenge, but I couldn't make it work badge wise and still play by the rules.  Come aboard!

Great to have you my friend!!  I'm in the same boat.  If you want, since the majority of the people who are participating so far are using the Spirit, I'll use the Swisstool with you.
