Tween Challenge - 84 and 85mm SAKs
on: March 13, 2023, 11:04:54 PM
Anyone interested in doing a 30 Day Challenge using the 84 and 85 mm Swiss Army Knives (and Wengers)?

It seem all except the SAK challenges (except the Delemont Challenge) is for the smaller SAKs or the 91+.  I know we have lovers of that  in between SAK size.  So let’s have a challenge  and show them off!

I’m open for what month, so if you’re game let me know and what month(s) you would be interested in.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I could be up for that.
The S557 has become quite a favourite of mine!

I'd be in...especially if I manage to pick up a Cadet.

Culling of the knife and multi herds in progress...

If I pay five figures for something, it better have wings or a foundation!

I have the SwissChamp challenge coming up in April, but I would be game for May or June. I just picked up an 84mm Walker and Tinker Small. I also have a couple of 85mm Wengers, one of which is a locking model that doesn’t appear to be found in the wiki. But I know next to nothing about Wengers.

You could carry a vintage 84/85mm for May. :poke:
Sure you can only get one badge at a time, last I checked, but you can post double the photos. :D
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I may be in as well. I have an S14 on the way and a couple of 84mm already. Any month but April is good for me.

I’m getting excited. I’ve never EDC’d an 84mm or 85mm before, so June will be a whole month of new for me.

Now I have a heavily used Wenger Motorist. :think:
Just needs a transplant of the blade and scales from a Commander to be ready for action. :salute:

How do you measure the 85 - 84 MM?
Blade length, handle length?

What models would be included?   
I have Pocket Pal and a Recruit with smaller main blade.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

https://www.sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php


This would be a good starting point. On the right hand side of the screen you will find the Victorinox 84mm models and just below that is the Wenger 85mm models. There may be others that qualify, but this is a good reference.

That said, both the Pocket Pal and the Recruit are listed in the 84mm section.
