Day 21

Used the Huntsman’s scissors to trim my mustache, but rather than treat you all to a close up of that activity, here’s another landscape shot…

Thank you for your discretion!  :rofl:

DAY 22

Ended up with some history near by. Huntsman with an old cistern from late 1800's not far from the Santa Cruz River. Old ranch and stage stop before rubber and exhaust rules the planet.

Huntsman served my nail duties again for an interview. Scissors and that fine Awl/Punch.

DAY 22  I was trimming and weeding today, so no real work for the SAK.  This Huntsman has my favorite light  blue scales.  The GITD Fireant got charged up in the sun.

SteveP - Day 22

Scissor use today. No action shot as the Explorer was in one hand, the loose thread on my pants in the other, and I don't have a third hand for the camera.

Later I used the scissors again to free a moth trapped in a spider web.

DAY 22
Had a bunch of fun testing the Firebox nano twig stove I picked up recently.
Thanks to SOS24 :cheers: this is exactly the piece of kit I’ve been looking for :salute:

Used the explorer main blade to butterfly a stick and slice shavings from some cedar.
Scissors to cut the wax paper I used for a fire starter (its my favorite fire starter actually)
Fiddling with this awesome little stove made me feel like a Boy Scout again  :D good times

There are lots of Chewy boxes in this thread.  Its just too convenient to pay someone to bring a 40 pound bag of dog food to your front door so you don't have to go do it, especially when the Chewy price is often equal to what you pay at a bricks-n-mortar store.  I buy kitty litter the same way.  Sunflower seed for the birdfeeder is twice as expensive on Chewy.com, though, so you gotta keep an eyeball on what you are doing.

Showing some support  ;)

You've awl done amazingly well so far this month  :tu:

Today I added a Vic' lanyard and pin to the DT that was sent by Fx  :salute:

I then closed the Phillips straight onto the pin and bent it  :facepalm:

The Surge stepped up and straightend the pin (mostly  :think:)

Day 30

Putting this in a little early today so I can focus on homework tonight. Used the hook to tighten the laces on a pair of boat shoes (decided I needed slip ons that were more substantial than sandals for camp, etc.) This is my personal favorite use for the hook, my sneakers have fit much better since I started doing it last summer. Unfortunately, they're too big. I blame the lack of socks, since I wear pretty thick ones with an extra liner normally. Will return and swap for a half size down.

Overall thoughts on the Hunstman (plus) compared to the Champ/Swiss Champ I carried for two months on the last challenge:

I didn't miss the front side Phillips as much as I expected. While I didn't do a lot of screwing, the can opener was always comfortably up to the task.

Scissors, as expected, were probably my most used tool.

I missed the scale pin surprisingly often on the non-cellidor knives, but only used the pen once or twice. Which is the opposite of how other challenges have gone.

The saw, more than anything, stood in for the fish scaler as a pokey/proddy/measuring tool. It saw a few uses at camp, but isn't that valuable on an office knife. I will probably track down a Fisherman/Angler of some kind to carry for a while once I'm done with this wave of challenges.

I missed the plyers once or twice, but never critically.

Overall, the Huntsman performed about as well as I expected. It's the thinnest knife Vic makes that comfortably handles almost everything thrown at it, up to light fix-it/outdoors tasks. Also, the four layer size is a lot more comfortable in hand (mostly due to more centered blade) than the Champs. It is often the knife I recommend to people as an "only" (ha!) SAK if they think they want one for day to day carry and light car camping, and I think that's exactly where it's best.

Good luck finishing out, awl! See most of you in the Spartan thread.
