30 Day Discontinued SAK/MT Challenge - March 2024
on: February 20, 2024, 03:29:07 PM
I'm going to start the 30 day Discontinued SAK/MT Challenge on March 1st.  Got a discontinued SAK or Multi Tool and want to earn the badge, join me on March 1st!
I'll be carrying a Marlboro Outdoorsman that I restored.  Got this SAK when I was 13, My mother was a smoker and I saved the Marlboro miles from her packs to get this and other stuff.  Broke the fine flat screwdriver completely off somehow and the scales were scratched, chipped and huge chunks were missing.  Took it completely apart, replaced the broken tool, cleaned it up and replaced the scales with plus scales.

Sounds fun. Great job on the restore.  I have a Marlboro outdoorsman and the PST I’ll use for the challenge.

Looks like it.  I didn’t know the nail clip is discontinued.  Is that a Swiss flame?

I have a couple of the Wenger variety, several Vic, and several leatherman to use in this challenge.

Oops!  You are correct.  The nail clip is still around so we'll just pretend that one sneaked in.  :D

It's a Wenger Spotlight.  Just finished cleaning it up and I got it going with a green LED bulb but I'm waiting on some white ones to make it complete.  I'll make a post on which white LED I used just in case anyone is trying to find a bulb replacement for it.

I almost started today forgetting it’s a leap year. Tomorrow I’ll start with my Weekender. 

Looks like I’ll have the following models that may make an appearance:

Leatherman: PST, PSTII, Kick, Blast, Style PS.  Does the original Wave count here?

Vic: Weekender, Executive. Does the butter blade Spirit count here by the same logic as.m the Weekender?

Wenger: Golfer, Cyclist

I had thought the XLT and Midnite Minichamp were discontinued, but both are still available on the Vic website.

Nice!  Besides the Marlboro Outdoorsman, the only other thing I have that qualifies is a Wenger Microlite Crusader that's pretty beat up.

I forgot about my Outdoorsman.  That one will hopefully see some regular outdoors use. Even if you just use your Outdoorsman that will be a good challenge with the toolset.

It seems most of my favorite SAKs are discontinued, so I’d definitely be in, but I’m already doing the Opinel challenge.

Have fun all.

Day 1

Let's get this party started!  Used the Outdoorsman to free the Spyderco Ladybug gen 2 or 3 that came in, blade will be used in a Spydernox build soon!

Great start to day 1 lazar.  I’ve seen a couple of your spidernox builds (I think those were yours) and others.  How much reprofiling/reshaping goes into fitting to 58mm SAK springs?

Always start a challenge off with a hearty breakfast.

I’ll be using the Weekender for a bit to start. I love the Vic serrated blades. I’ve only had this knife since November and it already has seen a fair share of work.  Never thought I could carry a Spartan in place of my Explorer, but the serrated version has its advantages. It now goes into the rotation with the Explorer as a primary carry.

Still wicked sharp even after slicing many cardboard boxes and a fee plastic bottles for crafts the past few months.

It is a real shame the serrated 91mm models are all discontinued.

Day 1

We're taking the Pocket Tool Chest for a spin over the weekend.

It was busy helping me getting into some new micro cord, then breaking down a box, finally cutting off the packaging strap off some leaf bags.

I don’t think I’ve seen the before and after. Much more material removed than I thought. I think I prefer the SAK size to the original.

Sorry I'm late to the party, folks, but I was a bit under the weather yesterday.

Please allow me to introduce Tom O'Brien.

I picked ol' Tom up during my first Chuck Yeager challenge a couple years ago.  I've kept him in with my EDC carries while Patch has done the Yeager challenges, so he's gonna be doing this discontinued challenge.

Day 2

Weekender again today, and it’s Spartan Saturday!  There’s something to be said about having the corkscrew when you need it for something other than a cork.  Worked out a knot in yo yo string.

This is a safety pillow case for kids that has a tab you need to depress to open. Corkscrew does the job.

The PTC is one of the few Wenger models I legitimately miss. It's my favorite of the "thick" keychain knives, feeling more practical than the Minichamp. I wish Vic had adapted the awl for 58s.

It definitely feels better in the hands.  Just substantial enough without reaching for the next larger size.

Today ol' Tom helped me cut my cigar in half.  (My doctor only lets me have half a day.)   I'm fearing that I'll not be needing the Swiss Army toothpicks much longer as I broke off one today, but that's another story altogether.

Had some Amazonian packaged duty today along with opening up this vial of locktite to stop my shift knob from coming loose.  I'm actually a little surprised the scissors managed to cut it open.

Good use PitCarver.  I usually don’t have time to enjoy a full cigar and have used a SAK  the last couple years to cut in half.  What have you got there?
