    Well I'll be doing one (the written kind. No vids, sorry.) I'm just waiting for your original edge to give out so I can put a new one on. Still waiting by the way. Stupid thing responds too well to stropping by half and just refuses to quit! Of course, my mother in law IS coming this weekend. If we really wanted to stress test your edge, I'd have HER use your knife

    Oh SNAP!



    Someone keep him out of the YouTube "Knucklehead of the Day" thread, or things are about to get really awkward.

    You like rust? That's what I get on my knives when the in laws are here. I'm thankful for that though - could be worse.

    I'm sure it is no coincidence, and frankly, I will be quite impressed if he steps up and starts contributing. That takes balls.

I'm going about it a little different because I'm doing it out in the open, versus under the table, so it comes off as weird and confusing I guess.

    Anyway, the offer still stands for the right person. I'd like someone who is respected in the community, a prolific multi-knife forum poster, with exceptional knife skills, someone who likes to be in front of the camera, who wants to pimp my knives and maybe even some other products all over the interwebs specifically the other knife forums, YouTube, blogs, Twitter, and Facebook pages of everyone known to us. I'm just looking for the same type of product shill that I see being used by other people.

    No inside joke here at all.
    I think AJ's confusion came about because in the same post you are asking for a shill yet mocking the use of a shill. To be honest I find it confusing too. I understand wanting to get your name out there to a wider audience but I think you are going about it the wrong way. I do commend you for being honest about the way you are going about it but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I can only imagine how difficult it is to grow your business and can't think of any other way but to basically hire a spokesman to "review" your knives? Seems like the snake-oil salesman with the stooge planted in the crowd that swears it will cure any ailment.

    Sorry. Missed that one. The battery went out on my sarcasm module leaving me completely unprepared for real life.

    I'm nearly 100% certain that I'll never have someone doing this type of stuff for me (and I knew that before posting - hence the mocking) but it sure would be nice. I can certainly see the confusion with this - I'm confused myself.
