I would like to announce that I am going to do a passaround of one of my 240mm damascus gyutos. For this initail passaround I would like to limit the number of participants to 10.
Partly because of this limited number I would ask that the people that already own one of my gyutos refrain from participating. I would also like to limit this first passaround to our USA members. This is mostly to cut down on the amount of the time the knife is abroad. I may do another passaround in the future for our international members. Please keep in mind that I do this for a living and this will be one knife that will not be available for sale until the end of the passaround. Speaking of which, the knife will be first offered for sale to those participating in the passaround. I would like to start the pass around at the ECG, and the knife will be available for tryout at the ECG. I would ask that all members that sign up for the passaround please post your comments about the knife in this thread. I would like to limit the time of each trial to 7 days from the day of reciept of the knife. I would also like to request that usps prioity mail be used for shipping with delivery conformation and the appropriate amount of insurance.
I'm working on the knife now and will post pics when I can
