Gesshin Ittetsu 27cm
Knife from this thread is offered for passaround.
Europe first, then world-tournee is fine.
10 participants x 10 days max.
Wait for next few days and then I should choose [if theres enough interest]
When passaround is rolling participants contact eachother for details, not me.
I dont care how you send it [you might as well just throw it], but you take the responsibility for it to get delivered to the next person safe and sound.
Sharpening and abusing within reason are allowed and suggested.
Patina of whatever kind OK.
Preferably pros or at least busy home cook. I dont want to hear in review "In a week i just did few onions and a potato to check and it cuts OK".
Reviews needed, and please keep it smooth.
Knife will be delivered with the edge Ive put on it few months ago. Used a little.
Most interested would be in Jons response or someones who seen new Ittetsu.
are you sending it to me too in the passaround? ;)
I was in the Gesshin Heiji pass around. Would love to try this one out to see if there is a difference (noticible).
I'll pass but this is an interesting idea. I had a conversation recently about whether or not a Shig, Heiji, etc. that's been around the block a few times should really be considered a Shig or a Heiji. At some point, a knife's performance is really more a reflection of the owner's skill and preferences than the knifemaker's idea of great knife.
I'm interested. i'll be using it at work everyday so you will get a real review :)
I'm interested, so count me in if you'll have me. I was actually thinking about this one as on my possible futures list.
If you want to, sure. Why not? You already have too many beautiful items around you :whistling: but you are the one who could evaluate for me as you have the comparison with a new blade.

Please count me in Mike! I'd love to see how the old girl is holding up:D
I would like to try it but knowing which will be my working situation in the next few months I'll won't have the time to try it in the right way (busy home cook). I want just to thank's Bieniek for the opportunity he is giving to the European customer.
