    Ah! – yes, there’s definitely wedging (cracking before completion) with thicker / harder product, especially squash.

    Concern on price is a matter of getting something worth the cash; don’t want to...

    Naaah ... i don't think so .... Stiction i know. The thing's like a magnet - often don't have to scoop up the pieces on the flat; they're all stuck to it already.

    With 'wedging' i mean that the...

    With my double-sided brick, i can get the cheap knife to pass the 'paper' test. (I run about 15 degrees on it.) I even test on paper towels off the roll: less than blade weight and slice. Should cut...

    Names i keep seeing, which is a good sign. Multiple endorsements from people in-the-know carries real weight. What i'm wondering is, when you're in this range, you might have $100 separating one...

    Duuuude - if you've got a table saw and use it then it's worth every penny. Don't deny yourself - you'll kick yourself for it. Not just the blade, but I'd buck for a stabilizer, too. I've got a...

    My experience has been that the technique seems to best utilize whatever edge a blade might have left, when said blade might charitably...

    I figure there are “limitations” on anything priced under $200, but plenty of opportunity there to drop serious spending money on the totally wrong tool.
