    Well I'm new to doing pass arounds and not sure what you guys have as far as criteria but I'm willing to give it a shot. Please keep me up to date.

    Beauty!
    This sign up is CLOSED!
    that went fast...talk about a nice turn out!
    I'm being 100% serious, if anybody here wants to take part and lives in Windsor, Ont, you're included!
    I need to get my boy Caddy in on this and we will save HUGE potential headaches at customs if someone happens to meet up in Detroit or Windsor!
    I'll get back to everyone soon, just to verify whether or not you're in! Don't worry, I'm a pretty nice guy , but as I said before, this is an awful lot of trust on the part of Thomas, so we need to make sure this all goes smoothly.
    If you haven't sent me your info on pm, I need it soon so I can figure out routing, etc.
    Thanks for the turn out everyone!

    *UPDATE*:

    I got the measurements from Thomas via email. These are approximate, because the knife isn't finished yet.
    The blade is 8" (in my experience, it might be a good thing for shipping reasons, even though most were hoping for 10")
    OAL is 13"
    Thickness is 0.09" or 2.3mm (at the thickest point)

    Here is a representative picture, as the knife we will be getting is an updated version of his "New Generation" line.



    You can get a better feel for his knives at www.haslinger-culinary.com, if you want to take a closer look.

    What's the word on this one? Close to done, perhaps?

    I'm pretty excited to check this out, his work is very distinctive.

    Me, too. I have admired his work for a long time.

    Dunno how I missed this thread first time around. Always liked the looks of Haslingers. Didn't know why they werent more popular. Hopefully this will be good for him and get him some fans in our crowd. Looking forward to hearing how this goes.

    Just spoke with Thomas and the knife is DONE! He's sending it to me on Thursday. I'll post the order in the next day or two (it will be A LOT like the Pierre one). If anyone has changed their minds about joining in, let me know so we can make substitutions where we can.
    Thanks guys!
