Matt Cook passaround

    Up for passaround is a Matt Cook custom balisong (channel construction, ti/ironwood handles). Limiting this to 7 people, and each person can keep the knife up to 10 days. Users with over 300 posts are eligible to participate (exceptions can be made), and I reserve the right to turn down a member as well.

    I ask that the knife be insured for $1500, and I also ask that you exercise caution with the knife. Last time I did a passaround, the knife came back with wear and scratches, please don't let that happen again. If you are looking for a knife to heavily flip over your hardwood floors, unfortunately this is not your passaround. Light-moderate flipping over soft surfaces please, (Or just REALLY make sure it comes back the way it arrived to you). Thanks.

    Please read the passaround rules before participating, as they all apply.

    I would like to be considered please sir.

    Actually after some thought, I'm passing. Thank you for the opportunity to be considered, but this is too expensive and my heart couldn't bare the wait between shipments!

    I employ those that do take up this chance, please look after this man...he is doing something that takes a huge amount of heart.....

    After what happened last time with his ELB I am amazed Trup would do this... It was something I haven't even forgotten or forgiven, and it wasn't even my knife. Shows you the character of this man, something alone that deserves applause and respect.

    You are brave and generous soul. Good Karma to you for sure.:thumbsup:

    I have seen this knife-albeit with different inserts, and it is something special.

    :thumbsup:

    It's like.... I WANNA be in on this and flip it...


    But I think it's passed my comfort zone of what I'm willing to flip when it's not mine....

    I've wondered what a custom Cook feels like in hand for a few years now, but 300 posts!:cry: Aw well, your generosity is a great excuse to step up more of a forum presence. To those lucky devils who get the chance in the pass around. Flip with love.

    Would like too be in this but lacking requirements and honestly would be afraid of even touching a knife in that price range even if i could. Espeacially a bali. What a gorgeous blade though and very generous doing a passaround with it.

    Beautiful knife and extremely generous pass around!

    I'd love to participate but there is no way i'd feel comfortable shipping that to my house.

    Good luck with the passaround!

    i think it would be cool to be considered if thats possible

    also living in california i dont know if you would trust your knife coming in and out of my state. never had any problems in the past but i would completely understand.

    Looks like a beauty and you sir are very generous and i think some more devils need to sign up and feel how nice this thing looks!

    Love matts work, have been on his list for I believe 2 year now. Have had some modded work done by him. Talked to him enough to become social friends with matt. I must say your custom is one of the most desirable in my eyes. I would appreciate the chance to hold it in hand to judge it fully.
    Besides from giving feedback to the community it would help me out on what form of custom I should go for when my time comes.
