Very cool craft.  Many backpackers use trekking poles even on up hills climbs to help with balance and stepping up, so the walking stick good be of some use.  Unfortunately, walking sticks are probably heavier than a lot of modern trekking poles and do not collapse.  But walking sticks look so much cooler

I agree, but the walking stick is actually not as heavy as it seems. I will give it a try and if I really like it, I might get a modern trekking poles. I really like a wooden, handmade stick though, so not sure if I would bring them, even though they would perform better. Some things just have to be a certain way, if it makes sense or not  :D

Here are 2 photos. Like I said, nothing fancy, but I like it  :cheers:

DAY 20

Today the SwissTool helped to replace a battery in a piece of equipment needed to run an operation today  :tu:

The operation was a success, in-so-far as I didn't have to do anything else.

Delegation is the key (it rolls downhill :whistle:)

Nice work. 

I also like the aesthetics wood, especially when handmade of more modern materials. 

The reference to trekking poles use was more to highlight that the walking stick may also be beneficial on the uphill.

Day 21/31

G'Day,

An easy day for the Spirit today. It started with a watchful eye on knife sharpening. A mate gave me one of his Ozzie made Damascus knifes to sharpen after some serious abuse in the kitchen. Man this blade is hard. It is going to take a few hours to get a decent edge!!! Spirit work included lunch a muffin duties only. No real work today, maybe tomorrow...

Pete
Nice knife but shame it is being difficult to sharpen.  I hate dull knives, but some, especially “super steels” can be so difficult to sharpen.

Day 20
The Spirit helped do a little trimming of a holly bush, so I can hopefully cut it out this weekend.  It also opened a dog chew for Fisher.  But one of the best tasks it did was open a package of Magnets from Comis via Nix

I am going to order up a Lansky Turnbox of my own. Some kitchen knives will be taken to it, as my tri-hone has awlready been slopped with oil that isn't food grade.

And stops in the middle! :D

More great work from awl! :tu:

Day 20

No real tasks, but here is a pic with all the implements opened up. So far I have used everything except the file, saw, wire cutters and the screwdriver tip on the can opener (did not take pics of using the can opener, but I did open two cans with it). It has been interesting so far - in some ways I like the size and heft of this tool and in others, I prefer the Spirit model. The flat head/bottle opener is probably the implement I prefer over the SwissTool - it is beefy and just as thick as the large screwdriver/pry tool on the SwissTool. I also prefer the awl on the Spirit over the SwissTool and the chisel/package opener tool. I like the bigger knife blade of the SwissTool and the pliers. I also like the curved handles of the Spirit a little more - it is sleeker and fits in the pocket a little better in my opinion. It is not to saw I dislike the SwissTool at all - far from it - and I would be perfectly happy if that is the only MT I had. Looking forward to using the Spirit more after this challenge and I will see if I still feel the same way in a month.

Busy week, so forgot to post again yesterday.

Anyway, not much happened really

Day 20

For some reason the power outlets in the kitchen stopped working so Spirit was taken to investigate the issue. Nothing serious - a flock of the switch brought the power back
Dream. Wish. Leave nothing undone. Repeat.
