Maybe everyone should make a series of vids like this? We'd sure have a true average then. Anyway, thanks to Rick for all his hard work doing this.
    I agree with the comments from Jay and Dave. I've used knives that were talked up as fantastic performers in KKF (and other forums) that fell short of my expectations. So my videos should be taken as only one piece of the puzzle.

    Some variables that affect stiction are the variety of potato (starchy or waxy) as well as the width of the slice (a thick slice is heavier and will drop off easier than a thin one). There may well be effects from technique that play a part in food release.

    Did anyone else listen to how each knife cut?

    Also, I noticed with a few, like the Masamoto, Rick was more comfortable using the heel end.

    Very interesting. I thought the Yoshikane had a good balance of release, and smooth sounding slices.

    Great share, PT! I had 3 thoughts as I watched these:

    1) I think the comments about technique are right on, I recall Salty saying something similar as well.
    2) If I did this thread, it would have had a lot fewer vids in it...nice collection PT!
    3) Having potato soup tonight?
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.
