    I think a pass around would work better in your interest.

    There's some good conversation going on in this thread, a hell of a lot more than I thought it would draw. Actually I didn't expect anyone to say anything here at all really.

    Sheesh! When I read this thread earlier today on my phone, I was thinking ***? because I had actually never heard the term "shill" before. Okay, thread makes sense now

    What the knife community needs is more focus on getting good knives in the hands of people who don't have any. More toys for us loonies won't do anyone a whole lot of good, though it might keep us entertained.

    It's preferable that the candidate(s) be a prolific poster on every kitchen knife (related) forum on the internet and that they post all videos of my knives in use on all of these forums.

    I want my knives (and products) to be shown and talked about so that tons of people will buy them.

    I'll give this person (or persons) at least a FREE knife with all the trimmings. I think that I can spare 1 gyuto or 1 suji and some maybe some sharpening/honing equipment for each shill.

    So who will step up?
    Now that I'm on my computer and not replying from my phone I have the opportunity to read the whole thread. Way to set me up to be a chump. I thought this was a serious offer for help. Now I see it is a joke, I guess an inside joke. Real classy.

    I have been on my phone all day. Rest assured this was no plot to ridicule you.

    Bottom line. It's a good marketing tool and I think you (Dave) should use it. I hate to say it. I'm Mr. anti marketing but you have to compete, as sour a taste as that might leave.

    I might call it something else though.

    There are ways to compete and use this type of marketing tool without polluting the forums though. But that is just my humble opinion.

    Hey maybe we could do an identify a knife shill thread?
    I always wondered why there is not a knife pic on those t-shirts
    I think this will be a good representative of a suitable pic, from the man's own work



    I was always irritated by those vids, a lot of posturing and little essence.

    Here another one that really baffles me, on a few occasions in the vid I thought he is going to decapitate himself...
