Wondering how everyone else carries theirs?

In my pocket on a suspension clip. The clip also has a Photon Micro Light and a SeberTool M2 on it.

For some reason I always carry my MiniChamps in a pouch, whether on my keyring, or in my pocket.

Wondering how everyone else carries theirs?

If I decide to participate, I'd probably carry it like I carry my Cadet. 5th. pocket with a little lanyard sticking out so it's easier to get out when I need it


Super shallow 5th pocket on these jeans, so not the best example. Would probably be the best pants for MC carry though :)

I'll figure it out. I also have a black Cadet that I carry loose in the bottom of my pocket when I dress up, as well as a blue one on a dangler. I've found that the lanyard and 5th-/watch pocket carry works best for normal EDC though.

Great combo Steve :like:

Very nice aicolainen. That is how I carry my multitools as well, unless I am at work where I use a sheath. I like that lanyard :tu:

Thanks, nakken!
I have a weak spot for leather and brass :)
The lanyard gets a little bit in the way when using the tools on that side, but not more than it makes up for in making retrieval easier, so all in all I prefer to have it there.

While I'm gonna still carry my MiniChamp with me every day,  there's still some jobs that it definitely can't tackle.
Just sayin'.

The “Official Rules” for the MiniChamp November to Remember Challenge are as follows:

🔹Carry exclusively any variety of MiniChamp (or MiniChamps) for the entire month of November.

🔹Post a photo of your MiniChamp each day.

Endeavor to use only the MiniChamp to achieve success in whatever tasks, situations or predicaments that may arise. If the use of a tool other than the MiniChamp is needed, be sure to post a darn good reason... PUNK!!  :pok:

But we all understand because a person needs to know their limitations   8)




Halloween is just around the corner and this challenge starts on Tuesday so the time to join is now!

Here we go!

Day 0

A little pre-game with the MiniChamp. I'll be carrying this one, either on the pictured lanyard or a black one. My other original MiniChamp may show up in a glamour photo.

Day 00
I don't mind an early start either.
While not wholly seen , my Alox EDC MiniChamp is resting safely in my combination Neck/Pocket pouch;  though most of the time it's around my neck.

Day 01

Coco: So you’ve come off the Buck 112 challenge followed by the fixie challenge and now you’re using that little thing for 30 days :think: hmmm :rofl:



Put the old style MC on my keychain replacing the normal Rambler. Still nice and slim and unnoticeable BUT no combo tool opener and philips layer :ahhh

New style MC kept close by, does have the combo tool of course but now a fair bit thicker…..opened some mail

Day 1

Used the spatula on a midnite minichamp to prise batteries out of their holders for recharging - they belong to my head torch  which will certainly come in handy now the clocks have gone back! In theory, you should be able to winkle the batteries out with a fingernail, but mine are so short that’s not an option…. :facepalm: However the spatula tool is just the thing!

Day 1:
MC got off to an easy start. Woke up with a terrible headache today, so I settled for home office duty


While I’m not convinced about the MC’s usefulness, it did a lot better than the Cadet in rounding out the titanium “theme”

Day 1:

I'm expecting big uses today. But so far this morning, I'll have to settle for just cutting an absurdly long piece of thread off the front of my puffer vest.

DAY 01

I have to admit that I'm feeling a little under prepared today with only this tool for the month.

Curious about how this will pan out.

This may not be so bad.
