    I'll say this, after my experience with the blade I purchased one of my own.

    I returned it to Pitonboy, as the knife had become very thick over the pass around period, and it needed work.

    I hope this pass around is back on!

    Thanks for the update, J.

    I too would like to see the pass around continued, as I would really like to to see a Hide in person. But I completely understand if Pitonboy wants to not continue as it will probably get beat up again.

    Just sayin' - whenever I use some one else's gear - what ever it is - I always treat it with far more care and respect than I do even my own. If someone is gracious enough to lend me one of their own valued possessions, it's the least I can do to return it it's original condition. Now I'm not trying to say anyone is at fault, or to try and convince Pitonboy to continue the pass around, like I said, I'm just sayin'.

    Peace and good karma to all! -

    Rick - which one did you get, and what's the profile like?

    I got one second hand with an ebony handle. I think it was the original profile but Jon would have to confirm. It was a bit thicker than most so I thinned it down to under 110 grams. Cuts really well but doesn't look OG.

    What do you mean when you say the knife, "Cuts really well but doesn't look Original Gangster?"

    Well, it cuts super nice and all but the finish is now a scotch brite satin as opposed to the original gangster kasumi finish. In addition the kanji is all goodbye and stuff.

    i recently got my own passaround knife back and it was thick as hell too, been sharpened plenty of times but nobody bothered to thin along the way. that's kind of expected though wouldn't you say? i mean, you're going to want to test out the steel and thinning can be intimidating to most i'd imagine especially on a knife that costs a lot.
