    Peeling towards myself

    Hi everyone,
    Couple days ago I have responded to No chop's thread about "stupid rosle lefty peeler" and it looks like the thread was hijacked with the methods of peeling rather than the original subject.
    I have made a video of demonstrating the technique I use.
    First of all :
    I am not suggesting anybody is doing it right or wrong , as long as you get the job done most efficient way you are using your the right way. I am aware that I am peeling towards my self yet I only cut myslef with the peeler once before I was working in pro environment.
    Just to remind you Katsuromuki technique you are violating the first rule of cutting by cutting towards yourself too.
    I am not very fast but no slouch either. I preffer the large carrots since it makes my grip more comfortable but this is all i had .
    Also I wish i had shot the video from the other angle so you can see better how my left fingers and the thumb side of my were palm rotating the carrot.
    At the end it is just peeling carrots...

    I peel towards myself too and never had a cut from this method.

    Probably. Since started using Japanese knives, I have learned to peel towards myself using mainly the heel part of the knives.

    Maybe we are upside down after all.

    Not sure how else you would do it - I'm German and do it the same way. You should have seen my Grandma cutting a loaf of bread toward herself, that even frightened me when I was a kid...

    Me too. I was really surprised reading the other thread that everyone peeled away from themselves.

    Watch the video in the thread and try it. I can't tell still, it seems faster but the two peels instead of one seems slower..

    I have watched the video and I have counted 26 peels in 6 seconds versus 13 peels in 5 seconds of mine , even if the times were identical I would say with one peel you will spend less effort
