Challenges are being penciled in fast and I’m pretty keen on all of them, currently it’s looking something like

June - 84/85mm SAK
July - Dean trad
August - Alox
September - 100/108mm SAK (TBC)
October/November - 60 day Spirit

July would suit me best but appreciate the Dean traditional folder is always run then so not good for everyone

December?

:cheers:

December?
Running an Opinel challenge in December could possibly conflict with the Yeager Memorial challenge. I still plan on letting the poll run its course, but it's looking like the Opinel challenge might take place in early 2024. That will give me time to grow my Opinel collection and increase the likelihood of offering up a prize or five. ;)

I'm thinking this challenge will be for January of 2024. That'll give everyone a good long heads-up and should minimize conflicts with other challenges.

Mrs. Stitchy requested a No.8 for her gardening and stuff so I took the chance and included a No.8 with polished blade and Padouk handle into the order for myself  :D They arrived today  :mail:

The red Padouk hardwood handle is very nice and the open/closing action is smooth and solid (no nail breaker)  :tu:

The blade though had no edge or visible grind.
It looked like they polished it away completely  (...apart from a few visible scratches)  :facepalm:

There was nothing that cold be "restored" with a few strokes on a stone. I had to get my Lansky sharpening system out to put an actual grind on it (chose 20°).

It was fun though and I like it  :2tu:

When did yee say the challenge starts?   :D

I just finished my meal with the picnic set, a No. 8 with fork and spoon.  It's definitely a fun way to eat!

I am looking to get one over the holiday season this year. But I misvoted as anytime :facepalm: but meant anytime in 2024.

I am on for August alox and September 100/108, maybe I could do 4 quarter of 2023 and grab one sooner than expected. I am thinking about getting a No 10

The challenge is looking like it'll be in 2024. That will give everyone ample time to clear their schedules and ensure their desired Opinel(s) is/are ready to go.
