I don't participate in pass arounds mainly because I can't be trusted when it comes to shipping. So, if I start a knife out all I should have to worry about is the first shipment. So with that being said, I would like to pass around a knife. I'm going to keep this as simple as possible.
Limited to five forum members in good standing. P.M. me if interested. The window will be open for 24 hrs after this post. The five will be chosen by a very unscientific method.
I'll ship the knife to the first person and provide a list of who get's it next. Each person is asked to use it for a week. All I know is I expect it back in five weeks. No hassles.
Mizuno Tanrenjo 240 Blue DX Honyaki gyuto. Once upon a time mirror finished.
I've been using it for a bit and is already wearing battle scars.
Put an edge on it but don't rape my steel.
Any other rules I will make up as I go.
I may send it out agian or do another if this goes well.
Please count me in and let me be first. I would absolutely love to feel the edge of a knife that you personally sharpened.
No no, I want it first, so Pabloz can repair all the damage I do to it!
Omg wow I would love to try out a Mizuno Honyaki. Owning a Tanrenjo reg gyuto, I would love to see the difference.
Thx for a very cool P.A.
Would love to be in on this. Thanks for considering me! Thanks, Scott.
Scott--Please count me in if you have room.
I'm working in Madison, always been curious about that one.
If you ever come through town looking for sushi you wouldn't even have to worry about the initial shipping. :)
Would be very interested if possible, please
After a fairly long hiatus from cooking I decided not to pick the usual gyuto back up and decided to pick out one of the twin Mizunos in the back of the drawer. I've been reminded how the knife is different than others. It's an example of a thick Japanese gyuto. You might be surprised by it's characteristics.
Would love to try it and I am local, but it looks like there are more than five in front. Have fun with it guys.
