If I got the spot I'd get a unique knife, if I don't got the spot I'd save $800 to buy some nice knives, I see this as a win win situation.They will be announced soon thereafter - you will refer to us as either a “massketeer” or “masshole” - depending on the outcome

I'm serious about the format guys. Especially the title. Copy and paste this stuff, text goes where the carrots are (please delete them first)
I get 100+ PMs when these open, keeping things uniform minimize mistakes on my end.

INFO ON SELECTION: All participants will be randomly ordered using the truly random noise of the universe (random.org)
Then, to choose sizes, I will go through the list in order:
If your 1st choice size is available you will be assigned that size.
If your 1st choice size is not available but your second size choice is available you will be assigned your 2nd choice size.
If your 1st choice size is not available and you answered "none" to the Second Choice selection (above) your spot will be placed at the end of the participant list.
This way, you don't have to use eldritch level statistical analyses to maximize your chances of getting a knife in the size you want.
You will only receive one knife if selected.
We will fill as many spots as there are knives.
The remaining participants will be placed on a waitlist in the order that they were drawn.
Edit: As has been the case with all previous drops, I am limiting entrants to folks who signed up to KKF before the thread start date to prevent people from creating profiles to skew the drawing (i.e. fake profiles, inviting friends to make accounts on KKF on one's behalf, etc.).
If you are selected, please treat this as ordering a custom knife (because that’s what this is!). We understand if there are circumstances forcing you to withdraw your order - it's still COVID time and that's what the waitlist is for - but for all other cases please try your best to adhere to the honor system.
We will send out posts confirming payment details when the project nears completion.
Please stay posted for further details.
As you may know - this isn't my (NKW's) dayjob. Running massdrops is a labor of love, and while I'm happy to run it, it demands quite a bit of time. Please do be mindful of the updates and deadlines as they keep the project on track; for that reason they are final. Thank you.
NKW, @RockyBasel, @Smashmasta

You can read thru this entire mass drop thread. TLDR, he likes to try and jump in way late, after having plenty of opportunities to join, and has trouble understanding why others laugh at him for doing so.Someone PLEASE explain this

Do you talk about knives at work? There might be a chance at least some will think 'he's always raving about this, there's probably something special about this knife'. 🙂 It's funny how this works, we once got a bottle of wine for Christmas from someone who has an extensive collection and drove...www.kitchenknifeforums.com
