Picked up a Cadet recently- only carried it a few times so far. I'm thinking it sure would be interesting to carry it exclusively for 30 days  :think:

Count me in as well  :cheers:

Reacquainted myself with terminology and how SAKs are measured, not the blade BUT, by the closed length of the knife (covers)!

I apparently own 3, a Cadet (Alox), a Pocket Pal and a Recruit. There maybe a fourth but not certain it pattern name.


Leads to this question?

Since it appears June for this Challenge, will there be a new thread created that includes a sign up list for members to make their commitment, and from which the challenge will be hosted? 
Or, will it continue as an extension of this thread?

I appreciate any clarification!  👍 :hatsoff:
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

I forgot I have a basically new Cadet in my box.  This might be a good chance to put it to work.

One of my favorite SAK's to EDC. I was also considering using it for the Tween Challenge.

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.

sounds good
Carry a Victorinox SAK folks,  because you dont know what life is about to throw at you.

I'm in. I'll be on vacation for a week in June, possibly without any internet or mobile connection, but I'll be involved the rest of the month.

I looked about and knew I had some in this size range and found them. I'm that guy who never bought a walker until they were discontinued, so I have one on the way.

Sign me up. I might even finish a challenge this time.

I was curious about this also.

Isn’t part of the Challenge carrying the one tool all month.

Would be fun to do a “multi” tool Challenge. See what I did there?
