    no offense to bob or his knives but i've seen some experienced cutters cut stuff with some pretty dull knives.....no where near as sharp as they would be normally.....it all depends if you know what you're doing or not....ryan

    Different Steel than the Shun line. The new Zwilling JA Henckel line is 52100 like Bob uses for his straight carbon blades.

    Does anyone want to do the can test on their knives ?
    I like his "rock wall" analogy for explaining carbide size to people who arent as obsessed as us. And is that Bob at the end of the video going "Soooooo smoooooth!"?

    That is one hell of a testing for kitchen knife.
    I dont know how many of you are cooking stew out of coke cans or water bottles but i never did...
    I understand that swede wouldnt be so effective on video but you cannot know unless you sell your house and buy a Kramer!

    "Beer Can Chicken" is actually a fairly common recipe over here in some places.

    Water bottles are a common obstacle in most bladesport competitions.

    And I am sure the people shooting the video asked for visual impressive things to film. Most people do not enjoy slow motion tomato cuts as we do here.

    Some comments about the ABS test and I don't know what Murray did, but I tested with a regular "bowie" type knife for the performance version. For my five "presentation" knives I submitted a big Chef and two of the mastersmith judges I had said this, "...was the first kitchen knife ever submitted for the mastersmith test." Not sure if that's actually true or not. Here is a pic. (I don't remember if I had showed you guys this one yet.)
