    CCK cleaver geometry question

    Hi all. There is something I've wondered about CCK cleavers for a while. So I toss it out to you. Sorry if this has already been covered, but I haven't seen it.

    I have two CCK cleavers. The much...

    I have a lefty ground Yusuke. The difference in release is subtle but noticeable - probably not quite as much a difference as you would notice with a beefier knife with a more pronounced convex face....

    It came up on the other forum - I had already excluded a belt sander from the list because the learning curve usually entails ruining some knives unless you're already quite good on stones (in which...

    Thanks for the feedback guys.



    Very perceptive



    I also left out a couple perennial favorites over on CH:

    Thanks for the feedback. I will make a graph eventually, but only once I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna tweak my numbers. I agree that the information might be too much and too buried for a casual...

    Right now I'm thinking
    Fast -> Speed
    Easy -> Ease
    Effective -> Performance
    Cheap -> Affordability
    Versatile -> Versatility

    Some of these are still clunky words, but they're less...

    Yeah, the wording is still pretty clunky. Basically, I was just trying to keep 'low'=bad and 'high'=good. Hence low=expensive. I had already decided to change 'cheap' to 'affordability' or something...

    You mean the whole vampire thing is gonna get even worse? Lordy, this thread is depressing.

    Once this is finalized, I'll probably make a color coded graph for easier quick reference.
  10. A Comparison of Popular Forms of Sharpening - Reference

    Hi guys.

    At another forum, I'm posting a comparison of different kinds of sharpening. It is a food forum, not a dedicated knife forum, so a lot of the people I'm writing for don't have very nice...

    That's a hard question to answer, especially because unless you have a wire edge or sharpen at an angle too acute for what you're doing with the knife, your edge doesn't really fail - it just gets...

    Right there with ya. It could just be an issue where I'm not skilled enough to use the 12k to full effect, but on the other hand I can get a pretty comfortable shave off of the 8k with a newspaper...
