If we have the interest...

Looking for 5 people maybe a mix of home / professional... willing to let others try this as I continue to rehab my shoulder.

RULES:
1. Active knife enthusiast only - member for min 3 months, 200 total posts and 3 posts in the last 30 days (only posts prior to this post will be counted)
2. Continental U.S. Only - sorry, but international shipping sucks
3. max 6 participants
4. Each participant will have one week with the knife
5. Each participant will be responsible for packaging and shipping with insurance to the next person - usually $10-$20
6. Post publicly or PM me upon receiving shipment and prior to shipping
7. Sharpen/steel/strop as needed, but please follow original bevel (NO profile and/or geometry changes)
8. Make your best effort to pass along the knife and knife box in as good of condition as possible
9. I will organize participant order for the most efficient shipping(least miles between)
10. Have fun!

TO PARTICIPATE:
1. Meet and agree to all rules posted above
2. Post publicly to this thread
3. PM me with shipping information after you post publicly
4. First 5 that meet all of the above are in

This is my own knife that I purchased for my private use. I am doing this pass around at my own risk. CKTG is not is not sponsoring, endorsing or in any way affiliated with this pass around. As such I reserve the right change any/all of the above listed rules/requirements at any time without prior notice.

I do not have the box, or if I do I'll dig it out I might... but if there's interest let me know.

I'm certainly up for this. You're a good guy to offer it. I must confess, I was considering sending out a knife of my own like this as well and this is emboldening me.

How's the shoulder treating you?

Decided to send a couple of my knives out as well, though not on the open forum. Very cool of you

Which knife is it? More curious than have the time right now. I picked up the 150 for my folks and loved it for the weekend I played with it.

I'd be very interested in this. I'm a fastidious guy in general, and a home cook, so it should be safe in my hands. I might be a little nervous about sharpening it, but I'd be happy to touch it up on decent stones and/or strop it. Perhaps this may affect where I stand in the pass around?

(My sharpening skills are fine, but I occasionally still create small buffs and scratches near the tips of blades, and I'd prefer to save you the superficial scuffs!)
