Thread: Pass-Around Sign Up

  1. #41
    Folks! Here is an update on a pass-around.

    Two people have tried and reviewed the knife. I implemented the changes recommended, however, I ground this knife some months ago and I made an adjustment to my grind since - I decided to grind a little thicker on the spine so it almost completely eliminates flex. This came from pro kitchen feedback, a little extra weight (more than stiffness at the spine) would be beneficial for doing a lot of prep work. I started grinding with leaving some more metal on the spine and haven't seen much of a drop in performance, so this grind will be my standard grind and thinner knives will be available as an option.

    So I decided to pull this knife out of the pass-around and replace it with another. Same goes for a handle - I too made some changes to the D to include recommendations, so it is a bit different handle now.

    I think it would be appropriate for a pass-around knife to be as close to my current work as possible, but the catch is I need to make the new knife and that adds to the waiting time. However, you guys are patient bunch and for me it is a never ending learning experience, so I hope you will accommodate me on this change. The bottom line, I want to keep improving my knives and one way to do it is to implement marginal changes as they are recommended, and to send out an "updated" knife.

    Thanks Marko, I would much prefer to wait and receive the current offering. I love the fact that you are ready to implement changes so readily if they will improve the product. That being said--I can't wait to try it!

    Cheers!

    The number of participants in the current pass-around is fixed.

    It is not going fast to begin with, and adding more participants will just add to the waiting time and more work to manage it. Plus, I want to have the knife back after maximum of 5-10 participants, to make sure it is in the shape I want it to be. Typically, correcting profile, thinning and refinishing adds 2 hours every time I do it.

    I think reviews (many on the pass-around list are pros) will give folks an idea about my knives, and my satisfaction guaranteed policy (7 day return) should give you a peace of mind, should the knife not meet your expectation.

    No problem. I understand. No harm in asking though, right. Your knives have caught my interest for some time now

    Sounds good Marko
