Needed to open a new can of tobacco today...
What blend?

Really enjoying seeing everyone’s pictures and posts  :clap:
Same here!

Day 2

Used the pen blade to free a pillowcase from its plastic bag. It went through that plastic so easily that I tested it on some receipt paper. Yup, it'll shave.

As there’s enough of us I’ve been thinking we should try and get a minichamp challenge badge :think:

I’m definitely no artist but having a little spare time over lunch and the paint app on my laptop, thought I’d have a play :D

Love to see some designs from you all

Day 2
Cut some dog treats.  The Mini Champ blade is smaller than I normally use, so it took longer but still worked

I gotta ask, what is up with that scale? Is one glued on top of another to provide another slot for tools? What am I seeing there exactly?

Day 2

Used the main blade to cut open more boxes today. I tried the cut and picker tool, but it would bind on the tape, so back to the main blade.

I also used the cuticle pusher to pop open the pump filter cover on my washing machine.

Day 2: Used the cuticle pusher for a prying tool.  This tool is a good straight edge screwdriver too!
:iagree:
Have used the cuticle pusher as a screwdriver many times.

In all fairness, the Rambler has the best tools from the MiniChamp. I keep a couple in various places where I simply don't want to leave a MiniChamp.

 :iagree:
It's always fun to have the extra tools, and the nail on the MC is better being pointy not having to do double duty as a flathead, but IMO the rambler/manager is the most pocketable 58mm SAK out there

Well, as I started the day out, alone, I thought I'd start it with a smoke.
I do tend to have a lot of these pics during these challenges as it's something I do with my MiniChamp frequently.

DAY 03

Little pepper jack cheese to go with the English muffin I toasted.

I will admit that I would prefer a longer blade than this pen knife but it worked just fine.

Shame that they never did 74mm Minichamp

Nice work, y’awl!

Day 3

Used the main blade on the midnite minichamp to open some post after a long day in an office on the Isle of Dogs - got a good drenching on the way out, though it was thankfully dry on the way home!

DAY 3  I got stuff delivered today, and the MC2 sliced tape, but I ended up using a razor knife to cut the boxes to fit in the recycle bin.   :facepalm:  These boxes were tough, not the lightweight kind from Amazon.

Though the cut and picker blade doesn't do so well on tape, it's great for clam packs.

i fitted a lanyard to my MC,i'm concerned about losing or misplacing it  :facepalm:
Looks good! :tu:

Got a good drenching on the way out...
Sounds about right for Great Britain!

Thankfully I took a pic' of my other MC with this mornings coffee...
Black coffee! :tu: Your Nespresso Pioneer would have fit in that photo so well.

Day 3

Just a quick photo of the MiniChamp on its neck lanyard...no exciting usage today.
