Possible Pass Around Idea - Harukaze Ginsan 240

Post by e.chou » Tue Oct 15, 2019 11:29 pm

Hi All!

I've been really grateful for the help and feedback I've been getting on the forum recently, and wanted to do something (hopefully?) fun for the members :P I've heard some good things about the new-ish Harukaze Ginsan gyuto, and wanted to solicit more feedback (and hopefully more sales for Mark ;) ). To those ends, I wanted to see if people would be interested in a pass around on this particular knife.

Pass Around Criteria:
150 Post minimum
CONUS (to keep shipping costs down)
1 week per person, give or take
Shall we say, ~8 people

If you are a good sharpener, I wouldn't mind having a couple on the pass around to give some feedback on the sharpening characteristics. I am paying for this knife out of pocket, though, and while it's not terribly expensive, I would prefer not ending up with a knife that's too beat up :D

If you have any interest in trying this one out, let me know!


Best Regards,
Ethan

I'd give it a go - would like to give it a full shift.

I’m interested. I’ve read great things this steel, and I’m curious how it compares with my Makoto Sakura
