    Potential pass around Shun dual core kiritsuke

    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

    I'm curious to see what these knives bring to the table(pun intended) and this is very generous of you to do this. Thank you and I will be watching closely, Gary.

    Thank you. I'd like to be included, if possible. I'm curious to see how it compares to a Devin Thomas.

    I'm in! Very interested in the "dual core" thing as well plus never gotten to try a Kiritsuke before...

    Tiger,*nothing* will ever be as beloved to me as my Devin yo ITK :-) - but my initial impressions are quite good. Really nice OOB experience, cuts like a dream

    Still, given the discounts I put together, it is one of the best $200 knife I can *ever imagine* -

    (Well I do wish it were a 240 and not a 210 and gyuto shaped...)

    Sounds a lot like the Z Kramer Essential line in the "cuts like a dream and nice oob edge" as well as the $200 price point

    Granted this means you have to like the Kramer profile which I admit is pretty unique/hit or miss from people I know that have tried mine

    Also, since it's a Shun I assume the F&F is top notch?

    ITK's are wonderful knives, but the DT I will put it up against is this coreless carbon damascus:
