Thanks! It's around 9 ~ 10 degrees per side. Makes for a great slicing knife!
It's in my pocket right now. ;)

Thanks! It must be quite the slicer indeed. You may have told me before once when i admired it, so thanks for indulging me again. I've held off on the P4 and am excited for the K390 Seki run.

Seems like that should go for the annual calendar contest as well, but what do I know ;)

Well you were 100% right. I kind of royally screwed up. I'd like to apologize for making assumptions that were incorrect.

I would also be honored to re-judge if that's cool with everyone! I've learned a lesson from this in that I will make sure to check how active people are before deciding. That thought never crossed my mind when picking last week. I will post the winners this afternoon after I'm off work! Sorry again everyone!

If the judge sees a pic worthy of winning the contest, should not matter how active the user is. Just happens that it didn't pan out this time ;)

No worries, PB. I doubt it would have occurred to me to check on that either. And anyhow those folks had great pics!

Yeah it's no big deal PB. I read over this thread and it was meant more like a "this may happen". Best picture should always win, they could at least frequent this forum once a week though like was mentioned.

^THIS!
(Specifically, for the calendar contest.)

One of the winners has just 2 posts: one to submit a calendar contest photo on the day he/she joined, and one other on the day he/she acknowledged being chosen a winner. This person hasn't been on the forum since October.

Another has just 4 posts, 3 of which are in the calendar contest thread, and hasn’t been active since November.

Yes, I admit that I’m still a bit irritated that two active members missed out on being winners.

I actually got a warning for voicing my opinion on this matter after winners were released...granted I was probably a little rude about it, we know I sometimes struggle with biting my tongue.

We can only hope that Spyderco takes notice of this year and and year out and how their dedicated members/followers sometimes feel slighted by it.

I love the annual calendar contest and the opportunity to participate is a gift from Spyderco...but I do agree it's a little irksome to see winners who never bother to contribute here except for the contest.
