Maybe a knife selected by Mark to try out and do a write up on with an option to buy at a discount? Even if I had to send it back with no option to buy I know I would love a chance to try out more knives!
Free 2 day shipping would also be an awesome thing, especially considering how "fast" normal USPS shipping in my area is. I can order something from CKTG that is shipped on Monday and doesn't get to me until Friday or Saturday.
Steeper discounts on items (or free items! lol) would be nice as well... I want more knives and stones! lol But then again who on this site doesn't, other than Mel who seems to own most of the knives sold here anyway?
The honest truth is that with everything Mark is doing for ALL of us, including free giveaways (BTW, did anyone win the Jan giveaway? I have a feeling that if they did it was buried. lol), forum only sales, VERY reasonable pricing on a site of this size, the normal sale stuff, the customer service, customer interaction, and the list goes on, I don't really feel that anything else is needed. I'd be happy regardless. Don't get me wrong though, anything over an above what is already being done will definitely be GREATLY appreciated, I just have a hard time thinking about anything else that isn't already being done.
So yeah, I think my favorite option is the opportunity to try out different knives so that I will know more about the subjects I chime in on. Just lay out some ground rules, get my bank/credit card info as security (if needed), and let me play with the knife/knives to see what I like or don't like about them. I'm not a pro, but I am an average home user that uses his knives everyday for meal preparation.

I live in the States... our local post is just that "efficient"... lol
I can't blame Mark or Sue at ALL though because everything is shipped out VERY quickly, like same day or next business day for a late night/weekend order... I just get it a day or two after USPS tracking says it will get here, EVERY time. lol But hey, I get it shipped for free anyway (all my orders are over $60) so I can't complain.
