    Lol I just had the same experience listening to someone at sur la table. My tastes for cooking equipment and knives have gotten more and more specific.

    I once had some time to kill at a mall, so I went into a Bed, Bath & Beyond and stood around in the knife section until someone showed up to help. I said "If I were going to replace the old knives in my house with new ones as a gift to my wife, what would you suggest I do?" And let the guy talk from there. I didn't even have to pretend or act, I just listened and he guided me through everything from knives to blocks to cutting boards to honing rods. I learned a lot. Not about knives, but I did get quite and education on marketing, public perception, common knowledge, casual user preferences, and retailer/manufacturer mindset. I heartily recommend it...if you have the patience!

    That reminds me: one of my specialty areas is motivation for health behavior change and motivational and supportive communication strategies for health professionals. The by far best example for the application of all these strategies on an expert level I found when I talked to an Indian carpet salesman in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Incredible skills, if I had had the funds, I would have invited him to give a seminar at the university.

    O.k., that may not be true for any of the 'usual' knife salespeople we come across, but I just had to think about it...

    Just wanted to point what the guy says at the end:
    Don't play with the basics: never do that

    Chefgiovanni might not be a cleaver-lady type of knucklehead. But i've always found him to act like a silly kid while lacking knowledge.

    I just noticed that i have a tendency to be banned by knuckleheads.. but we've all seen how Giovanni takes criticism. (even when it's just on his products.)

    This is great.

    "Even in the box, perfect balance, shape, feel."

    I love how he dons a chainmail glove to ensure his own safety while sawing through a tomato. What would he think if he saw Salty skin a tomato without even holding it in place?

    Oh, "The Chef" is one of my favorites. Anyone that every thought that Mark is a bit too salesmany, has never seen the best from Chef's Depot.

    However, I see that The Chef, like many other dinosaurs, is still using stones. He has yet to realize the amazing sharpening (and auditory) symphony that is the Rada Sharpener:

    TURN YOUR SPEAKERS UP! ERRREREERRRREEEEE!!!!!

    the metal shavings means it's working!

    Nice find Justin. This is a gem.

    I like the question mark he inserts in the title: "How to use the Rada Quick Edge Knife Sharpener?"

    Just briefly browsed their site. Stunning.

    Good news. The "Rada Quick Edge Knife Sharpener" can be had for just $7.00
