So I have been thinking about doing a pass around for the last few days and was wondering what every one thinks about it. I am thinking a 240mm gyoto or possibly a 270mm suji it will be 52100 and on the thin side <3mm. nothing fancy, plain handle. what do yall think?

I think you should do the gyuto, people have more to reference it to.

I would be interested in either knife, but I think my name is coming up on your list sometime in the near future, so feel free to give the opportunity to someone else.

I'm in still but put me at the end of the pass around. That way I can see how well it holds up compared to the ones I have.

P.s Dave or jonny the title "super moderator" must be banned!! Or I will find a way to hack the sight and replace it with " Mike Stward jr"

I'm in if there is still room! I certainly would like to try out one of your knives and see how it stacks up to the ones I have, (DT, Del, Butch and others) :knife:

I really want to handle a Burke knife! Gyuto unless Colin is passing around his Suji! :)

Figures that something like this happens when I'm not around to sign-up! I'd like a turn, if possible. :)

Wow, not shortage of interest here.
If there's still room, please count me in. Either suji or gyuto would be of interest to me, but for comparison sake, I certainly have more gyutos.

so I have been thinking about a semi custom/midtech type line of knives. water jet cut blanks triple quench etc.. premade wa handles so I would do the grinding and heat treat and then assemble them. I was thinking that I could maybe do about 25 knife batches three or for times a year all the same style/size per batch. considering a prototype mid tech for the pass around. what do y'all think?

Why would you do that and what would it cost a piece?

Hi Bill,

I think that is a winning idea!! What type of steel do you think you would use?? Please put my name down on the list for the first batch!! :knife:

I'm in. 13 is my lucky number so is love to get #13!

Guess a 52100 core san mai would be impossible for a mid tech, lol. Great idea. I don't think you would have any problems selling them all.

Depends. If it's AWESOME, please do. I'd rather buy AWESOME without the fancy.:2cents:

The knives would be 52100 with a slightly modified(for ease of production) triple quench triple temper heat treat. Tinking about holding #s 1 and 25 out of each bath and doing a set at the end of the year with matching handles and block

I think that this is a really good example of how to best use the passaround concept.

Why waterjet? Pierre wrote this in his mid tech knife thread:

They will be cut out by lasers, tighter tollerance than water jet. Same end result, knife blanks. They will be heat treated in salts, in my opinion, a more consistant process. They will also be cryo treated.

Why waterjet? Cost? Easier to find a place to get it done? Does it matter? Will be hand-ground to final profile, so will a couple hundredths of a mm here or there when rough cut really make a difference?

Not sure if you are just curious as to Bill's fellings about laser vs water (if he even has any), or if you are asking him to defend his position. I suspect it is the former, but your post reads like the latter.

Hi Oivind,

Waterjet because there is a good one locally that likes knives and is a nice guy that is very easy to work with.
