    UPDATE: START AT POST #64 FOR NEWS!

    It's been a while since I've seen a passaround here in BeckerWorld, so I thought I'd revive the tradition.

    I just came up with this baby, and it is slightly different from any other -17 around, so I'm willing to let folks fondle my child (no Penn State jokes here). Basically, this knife started life as a BK16, and with some cosmetic surgery changed it's identity [original post: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/973060-HYBRID!-Meet-the-FFG-BK17! ]. Shipped scales may be different than shown in this photo.

    There are Bladeforum rules regarding passarounds. Find them here: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/262872-Rules-For-Passarounds

    Among the rules are 6 month membership on Bladeforums. Along with their rules I have a couple of my own, since it's my knife! ;)
    Beckerheads only. Sorry, but there is a significant investment in my time and I want to know it's going to someone who will REALLY appreciate it.
    CONUS only. Sorry CAM, but I'd worry with my knife winging it across the globe.
    List will be limited to 10, unless there is significant interest, then this will be revisited.

    The following was unapologetically lifted from a passaround done by Morrow:

    Also read and understand the following:

    This comprises the "Shrink Wrap Warranty" for the passaround knife that is described elsewhere in this message. By participating in the passaround you agree and warrant that:

    - US Addresses only! No PO Boxes!

    - You are 18 or over and considered an adult under your jurisdiction.

    - You can legally posses, carry, ship and receive the passaround knife.

    - You take full responsibility for this knife and its use while in your possession.

    - That you are participating in research and your comments and conversations about the passaround knife are limited to BladeForums.

    Keep the passaround up to 1 week and PERSONALLY* send it to the next person by U.S.P.S. Priority Mail, delivery conformation, insured.

    This is your responsibility, please do not rely on anyone else to mail it for you. No excuses.

    Priority mail with delivery confirmation and $250 of insurance is SOP. You may also choose to ship via UPS or FedEx, as long as the above insurance amount is met.

    When you receive the passaround please post in this thread as soon as possible so that we can keep track of it, also note the condition of the knife as it is received. Please report any discrepancies as to the description of the previous participant. In such case, please e-mail me, and I will determine if the knife should be sent back. Please post when you send it on to the next person.

    After the knife passes hands, each person needs to verify all contents were received and their condition.

    And, please, post a review, in this Thread.


    Any questions or to get the next address to forward the knife to contact me at [email protected].

    And I will add you to the list in the order they were received, unless it makes sense to change the order to avoid bouncing the knife all over the country when it could just go next door.

    I am still amazed at how good that knife looks. You did a hell of job on it. I do not want to be in on the passaround as I do not have much free time right now and it would take away from someone else getting to enjoy some primo steel.

    Put Moose or Ethan on there last so they will put this knife into production :) haha

    Darn. I'd love to get in on this, but I don't qualify. I wouldn't trust a newbie with a knife I spent that much time on either. Looking forward to the reviews and more pics.

    but by the time you get it it will have ogre sweat on it. And perhaps some blood knowing my luck.

    LOL. Nothing wrong with a little blood and sweat patina, I always say.

    Only if Thrill's got corrosive body fluids, which I suspect he might. :p:D
