I started a thread about the Shun Dual core (http://shun.kaiusaltd.com/knives/kni...-in.-kiritsuke) and I just today ordered one at quite a bargain. It's on sale for 239 at Williams and Sonoma and then I bought a "gift card" from giftcardrescue.com for Williams Sonoma that got me another 10% or so off. IT is really sharp OOB and rather pretty for a Shun with a nice Saya :-)
I would be willing to do a pass around in the US if there is enough interest for say 5-10 people. Pretty standard rules I guess:
Must be a member with KKF in good standing, say a minimum of 50 posts.
- You may sharpen the knife if you know what you are doing. Of course, part of the idea of my doing the pass around is to see if people will think the dual core means less sharpening then knives given the same use :-)
- Use it for a week or less and PM the next person for shipping address.
- Insure the package for $250
- Agree to give some impressions in this thread
