    How about have those interested make a donation to KKF in an obscure amount, like $5.67 and someone can enter those names with the peculiar amount in a spreadsheet, then go from there?

    Alright, i'm gonna run it by Dave. I think we're going to have to keep it open to anyone, but I would love for those who enter to donate to the forum. No minimum or maximum donation , but I still want to know how much our little giveaway raised, so perhaps the obscure amount idea will make it trackable.

    Thanks again, guys (and Lucretia)

    Still working this one out, and waiting a bit, in light of recent fundraising efforts (great job, Bill!!!). However, I brought the Haslinger into the firehall today, got an unprocessed loin, and ended up with this:



    It was a "rush job", but man, is this tip great for trimming silverskin and fat! Oh...this is for 8 guys....

    You guys eat too much!!! Haha

    So, in a random turn of events, the Haslinger has been passed-on to another member of this great forum. He's a cool guy who I meet up with pretty regularly and he happens to work with another member here, who I'm sure will get his turn with the knife. It'll be used in a pro kitche by these guys (knuts) and I expect a fair bit of cool reviewy type material.

    After that, this thing is gonna find a loving home

    Gave this thing a good trial today, does well on striploins, and slicing proteins on line. Not the greatest for vegetables for myself. I came from using a french chef knife as a young lad, and kind of went to gyutos. If you enjoy a good german profile, with good steel, good edge, this is the knife for you, it isn't the knife for me though.

    I am too much of a push/pull cutter for this guy. Like I said, it really wants to slice protein, but it just doesn't have the profile I am looking for as a versatile chefs knife, I would need a flatter gyuto for vegetables. It would be a nice line knife, it's got a short enough blade height to slice well, and can do anything in a pinch. So, if you like the profile, this knife won't let you down, it's a bit handle heavy, but feels pretty good and gets nice and sharp. Thinking about its profile, first thing I am going to do is dice an onion with it tomorrow, it might do the business on dicing onions.

    Thanks for letting Trev take this for a run Tom, I saw it this morning and said, "I know that knife" I have been interested in Haslinger's work for a couple years now, just never got around to ordering one for myself, his profiles never struck me, I always thought, nice knife, not for me though. This little trial kind of confirmed that for me, but I would have no problem ordering a custom in a slightly flatter gyuto shape, or just not a gyuto, something else altogether. Good to support the forum guys, and also good to support our fellow Canadians, there isn't a lot of us making knives.
