Favorite Four Layer Challenge June 2022
on: May 09, 2022, 01:04:06 PM
Not too big and not too small, the four layers are just right.  :D  Carry your Fieldmaster, Huntsman, Pioneer X, Explorer, or throw badges to the wind with one of the others, or use an assortment just for the joy of the four layer SAK!

Normal challenge rules apply, void where prohibited.

Point of Order:  The Pioneer X is a three-layer SAK, so I’m going to assume you meant Farmer X.

You are correct, sir.  I was in the process of buying a Pioneer X and had it stuck in my head.

Sounds good, will go for either the Huntsman or FX badge I think :think:

Edit. I’ve already got the FX badge on reflection :twak: so Huntsman it is

Woohoo!!!  My very first challenge. I’m totally up for this. Thinking that I’ll probably use the FX, since I’m on such an alox kick right now. But I also feel a strong pull toward my custom yellow Explorer. But there’s also that Huntsman I modded with homemade Micarta scales. Decision. Decisions. Decisions.

I think my most carried is a Deluxe Tinker, but I've got other models.  No Farmer X though... :think:

I believe I have just the four-layer SAK for what I’m hoping is going to be a pretty epic June.  I’m in!

Use an assortment?
So we can swap from day to day, so long as it's a four-layer?

That option has cool possibilities. Allows a person to try maybe a different knife each for a week, and then make comparisons to how well suited they were. Or a dedicated work week knife, and a different weekend model.

As long as you don't care if you earn a badge.  I plan to use several.  :woohoo: :nanadance:

"Normal challenge rules apply, void where prohibited."

What are the normal rules of a challenge?
I've looked through quite a few threads, but the rules vary quite a bit, with some even permitting swapping out...

I thought the "void where prohibited" made it clear that that part was in jest.  If you want rules, here's the rules:

1-Post a pic of a 4 layer SAK, preferably in use, every day for 30 days.
2-If you use the same 4 layer SAK every day, and there is a badge, you can apply for the badge at the end.
3-If you don't need no stinking badges, use as many different 4 layer SAKs as you own or can afford to buy. 
4-Most importantly, have fun!

Good enough?  :D

I’ve been away from the forum for a few years now, How exactly does one find out if a badge is available for a certain knife?

A shiny badge (or even a tiny icon) could definitely persuade me to use just the FX.

So there isn't a badge for this particular challenge, then?

Correct.

There is a Farmer X badge.  :tu:

I looked through the list of available awards and found these four layer SAKs.  To get the badge, you have to use just one model for the 30 days.
-Huntsman
-Fieldmaster
-Explorer
Farmer X


If you have a modded  or discontinued 4 layer, you could get the modded or discontinued badge.

There is no specific badge for this challenge, for the Deluxe Tinker, Angler, Fisherman, etc.  Badges have been designed for specific challenges, but from the ones I've participated in, they require a certain number of people as well as someone doing the work to design it.  I have not asked a moderator about any of that.

It will be in the list. Badges for challenges are on pages 4-8. Do note that the Farmer X challenge badge, for reasons unknown to me, is under the "site" category.

This is excellent news. I did a dry run today, carrying just my silver FX. I’ve really enjoyed my recent Farmer/MiniChamp combo, but just the FX was so much simpler. A month with the FX will be a snap.

I think I’m going with the FX for the full month. After a few days of carrying the FX, I’m really digging it. I mean, it’s a Farmer, so it’s already awesome. But having that big pair of scissors is just over the top awesome. It’s definitely a dense knife, but it still feels good in the hand, and the weight really isn’t so bad.

I’m even liking the silver alox this time around. I’ve always yawned at the silver in the past, but I’m strangely okay with it now. I guess I’m starting to associate silver as being my official Farmer X color. So no need to pull out one of my more exotic variations for this challenge. Classy silver with red logo is working for me, and I think it looks cool with the spruce colored fob.

The Farmer X is a great choice (not that I'm biased or anything), and the spruce green fob looks great. Mine currently has an FS Navy fob.

Right, but when the originator simply said “normal challenge rules apply”, it prompted some discussion of what exactly that entailed.
