I will pass around a a knife in a second half of September. I haven't worked out details, but there will be ten people, 5 pro users and 5 home users. Each will be allowed to keep the knife for a week. Sharpening is OK, as long as people know know what they are doing (borrowing the line from pitonboy). I will also include a stropping felt with 1M diamond spray to be passed around with the knife.
After the pass around the knife will be returned to me for thinning and refinishing and it will be sold at a discount.
I can make either 260mm or 240mm on the edge. Which would majority prefer to try? Just reply with the number and I will go with what majority chooses.
