Early on in the discussion of having a MiniChamp challenge, in November, I made the comment about a MiniChamp carving the Thanksgiving turkey.  As we were going to my in-laws today, my MiniChamp wasn't invited to do the carving.

I did have it on standby though in case it became necessary to lend a helping hand.

Day 24:

Grilling a Thanksgiving turkey today.

Nice setup Buzzbait looks delicious!!
 :drool: :drool: :drool:


Day 25(Image removed from quote.)

Wow cool plant  :tu:


Not tried whittling with the MC - but then I’m no expert whittler either!

Day 23

Used the wharncliffe blade to open the latest purchase - sterling silver Parker Sonnet fountain pen and mechanical pencil set for a very low price so I couldn’t resist! I had wondered whether they might not be the real thing as the price was so low, but they are - the nib is a nice fine nib in 18k. The only slight oddity is that they were both made in the same year, but the pencil is a Mk 1 and the fountain pen a Mk 2 in terms of style, but both are in excellent condition and work well so I’m not complaining, specially not at the price!  :D

Very classy writing implements Rizio  :salute:

Thanks - it’s almost becoming a problem! :facepalm:

Day 24

Found a new use for the spatula! It makes a good coin substitute for opening the battery hatch on a trackpad when swapping rechargeable batteries. Apologies for poor lighting, but it’s Stygian dark out there today!

It really does make a great flat head

Day 24: Happy 🦃 Thanksgiving Day for all Americans present!  My dogs woke me up this morning to a frost.  I used the mighty Minichamp cuticle pusher to help open a box of Milk Bones for them.

Awesome use Barry  :cheers:

DAY 24
Happy Thanksgiving to those across the pond (or celebrating elsewhere)  :salute:  :drink:
Mrs Surge decided that with awl the miserable weather we've been having here that Xmas should start early  :twak:

Here's the MC hanging off the "upstairs" tree (the "downstairs" tree will be up next weekend, probably  :dunno:)

Nice shot surge  :salute:

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

Day 24

I opened a new can of nicotine pouches, and used the pen blade to cut the plastic seal off.

I'd have to keep the bone for me to make beads and such from.  The Boss Lady wears a ring that I made from one.
It actually isn’t a bone, it is a segment of bison tail.

Some tasty looking food on here!  :drool:

Day 25

Back to the mundane - opening a box containing sacks of sunflower hearts for the feathered visitors to the garden. I have to say I prefer the awl on the pioneer for this job, but the main blade on the midnite minichamp gets the job done and had surprisingly little goo from the tape on it after opening the box up.

That sauce looks hot, Sos24! Nice work, everyone!

Day 26

Needed to open up a new bag of coffee beans first thing for this morning’s cappuccinos and egg and bacon muffin for breakfast! The scissors on the alox minichamp did the honours - should have let the beans defrost first, but I’d forgotten to take them out of the freezer last night…. :facepalm: Never mind, they ground fine and the coffee tastes as nice as ever!
