    Sorry folks for the delay, I have had a good extended test period. In fact its been the only knife I have been using for sometime which is why I have been a bit sticky with it, I wont give any of my long term thoughts. I will now give it a clean up ready for pass around.
    I would like this to be a more informal pass around. Open to EU and the States. I will organize the list EU first then USA.
    I will not put a cap on how many yet, I don't mind it being gone for a while as long as I get it back, as this will be my own user. Though I'm happy to take commissions based on it and will be adding something along these lines to the 2013 line up.

    The knife is featured in this thread http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/s...ss-mono-Nakiri-with-hollow-geometry-prototype

    I know there are a few things I would do differently having used it for a while, but would love your thoughts as a user and of the steel, so more how it works/sharpens/edge retention rather than looks and fit and finish.

    I'm horrified with my efforts at engraving WillC on the knife, but it at least shows it as not for resale, next to my logo'd work:scared4:

    I would like it informal, but try not to keep the knife longer than 2 weeks, so it keeps moving.
    Please post your thoughts when you have the knife, not at a later date after other reviews have been posted. It just makes the thead slow and dull otherwise.

    So lets get a list, and then I will arrange an order.:biggrin:

    Can you give you name and location/state/country and if you sharpen or don't sharpen.

    I'd really like to take this knife for a ride. Pro user, Portland Maine. Not comfortable sharpening other people's knives quite yet. Thanks Will!

    Excellent, thanks for the response, and a hearty welcome to Warbies, we have been discussing a custom knife via e-mail so I thought this a good opportunity to bring him in on this.:biggrin:
