Keeping up with this challenge will be a challenge in and of itself! :like:

I have a selection of 84/85mm SAKs. An Evolution 23 will be on hand should some sawing be necessary, and Alox Bantams will feature prominently. Coincidentally, the SAKs I'm using for the currently running Vintage SAK Challenge awl happen to be 84mm.

Guess I have to jump on the bandwagon here since I just got my Alox Bantam in.
I also have my phone case Cadet that's Always there.
So 22 is me.  😎

Yeah, I own 3 Campers but ended up carrying only one of them for almost the entire challenge.

Similarly, I own quite a few 84/85mm SAKs but... I expect the Tween Challenge is basically going to be the Recruit Challenge for me.  :D
I usually use a couple different knives if I have them.  This one will probably be the same with the custom Voyageur and SwissBuck being the main ones.

  Alright you silver tongued smooth talking small(er) knife enthusiasts, you've talked me into it. Michael Jordan's number it is for me :D

 I've a Bantam , Recruit, Tinker small (which has been my EDC work carry for approx the last year plus) and a Wenger S101 I got for my birthday, so I might actually not do the Ironman style this time and go for variety  instead.  :cheers:

 Time to dust off the photography skills (and image posting for that matter) as I haven't participated in one of these  since pre Covid times  ! :think:
 Hopefully attached are my "4 for the 84"

It's a bit of a long story, but suffice it to say I'm gonna be bowing out. Timing just isn't on my side for a June challenge. We'll have to see if I'll be in for the Dean challenge in July.

I've been wanting a S101 and another Tinker Small so they should be here by the end of the week. I'm kind of thinking I may carry a different 84/85 each week of the challenge. Haven't totally decided if I'll power through with one or switch it up. The S101 will be totally new to me so this would be a good chance to put it through the paces too

That is true Barry!

I was not certain what choices for an 84 /85 mm I would have. Then was surprised I had 4 models that fit the bill.

BUT, then I looking at what other options folkes are discussing.   Thinking a challenge I will not be tempted to buy a knife just because🤪

Wrong, a SAK with a clip point?  S101 arrived early last week, just had to have!  Then learned it is an 85mm. 😄

Of course the Yellow EVO is nice😉, only found with Phillips, want a Cork Screw!
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

That feature is very unique!

I was really leaning toward the yellow EVO.  But, did not need a saw. But with out a cork Screw😔. I then was about to settle for a model with the black grips when I caught a glimpse, and said, “self you gotta get that!”
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!
