Since I don’t qualify because of lack of posts, I was forced to buy one.
You could start a pass around for members with LESS than 100 posts! ;)
I’ll take that under advisement!

Hi everyone, Ethan here! I'm excited to see that there's quite a bit of interest on this passaround :D

I've been buying (way too many :P ) knives from CKTG for a few years now. I don't post a whole lot, but I have interacted with some of you via PM in what I hope were pleasant exchanges :lol: But in my time here, I have definitely been a big beneficiary of both Mark and Sue's great customer service as well as the collective wisdom of the forum. Anyway, I just wanted to try to give back in a small way, and hope that this is an enjoyable passaround for all involved :D Thanks again to Mark for being awesome and going along with me on this, and to Jeff for helping host things!


Best Regards,
Ethan
Hi Ethan, thank you for your generosity!

Well, I got mine. I’m very anxious to hear everyone’s thoughts on this knife. I dont want to say anything until others have given their thoughts.

Wow, this knife is going to travel from Hawaii to CT, talk about traveling the country!

I still need a few addresses.

Ok, this is the participation order. This knife is going to do some serious traveling, down the east coast, out to Hawaii and back to Texas for it's final resting place!

1. ME :mrgreen:
2. Thin Man
3. ashy2classy
4. J david
5. Cutuu
6. Altadan
7. slobound
8. mauichef

I send a PM to each participant with the address of the next destination to ship after they have finished with the knife.
PM me and the next participant with a tracking number when you ship. Insure the knife for $400.

Please try to keep the knife no more than 1 week if possible! You can touch up or sharpen the knife if it is in need and you are confident in your skills.

If any problems arise please PM me ASAP so we can resolve as quickly as possible.

Please try to give feedback, as little or as much as you feel comfortable with even if just a couple of simple thoughts. You don't have to write and we don't expect Pulitzer Prise articles or scientific explanations of geometry.

Most importantly have fun with this! ;)

Thank you Mark and Ethan for your generosity and giving us this opportunity!

Was going to ship this out today but it was a federal holiday, no mail service. Damn, had to keep it another day! :mrgreen:

It will be shipping out to Jay tomorrow. I'll gather my thoughts and post some impressions in the next day or two.
