Alright, time for yet another passaround! Abashedly, I admit I still need to sen BB his Anryu and Mel my Kato 240, but perhaps the addition of another knife to the Fedex queue will push me to get these out the door all the sooner.

My HD2 240mm Kiritsuke isn't the most special snowflake in my block, but it is one of my most used and appreciated knives I have. While, like a nakiri, the pattern may not appeal to some, I think it is way more versatile than many give it credit for once different applications are explored. Anyway, don't want to taint impressions, so will stop there.

For the passaround, I'm thinking 6 - 7 participants with a 2 week limit per. To qualify, you must have been a member for at least 3 months and have over 100 posts.

In terms of rules, sharpening and touching up is fine. That said, if you are unsure of your sharpening skills, don't sharpen it and let me know as I will slot you in before someone who good with the stones. While the knife is semi-stainless, please take care to clean and dry the blade so no undue discoloration occurs. Please try to stay true to the edge bevel that is in place and if you do sharpen be diligent in the process (check, very frequently for a burr on lower grits). The handle isn't particularly dear to me, but it is unstabilized, so be mindful there. If shit happens, which is possible, let me know.

Another generous passaround! Thanks, Chip.

I'm up for this, but others should take precedence given that I may have other opportunities to try the knife. I'm comfortable touching up your blade for queue purposes, but I won't take it below 1.5k out of respect for the original bevels without checking with you first, and I won't sharpen it unless absolutely necessary given that I already know the limits of HD steel in my hands.

I don't mean to be presumptuous, but past reviews of Kiritsukes have been very vocal about the sensitivity of the tip getting caught on the board, etc., and being prone to damage. It may be worth users noting this fact, even though it is hard to see this being a problem/issue in this case.

I would love the opportunity to try some HD steel in any form I can but have been blessed as a member of 2 recent pass arounds so I am willing to miss this pass around if you have too many interested parties. Chip you are a stand up guy thanks for your generosity.
