    Cutting videos

    I will posting videos of my knives and their cutting performances in this thread . These are my standard tests for any finished knife and I hope it can demonstrate ease of cutting and food release . Ease of cutting can be understood from the lack of the cutting noise and food release will be easy to observe in videos .
    I cook for living and have to have better knife skills than most people however there is no "chef trick" in these videos , this is how they cut . Feel free to ask any questions you may have
    First one is the 280mm gyuto I made for myself , asymmetric grind .

    This one is the gyuto I made for Karlo Evaristo , not sharpened at this stage yet

    Wow, it takes me over 30s to do that! (dice the onion)

    I guess that everything is easy when you know how!

    If these knives make me cut like that, maybe I need one. (obviously joking about the knife skills, but not about the interest in the knife).

    Mert, how is the blade ground (I mean symmetry, taper, convexity etc). How do I find out prices, waiting times, what's available?

    Cheers.

    I find it mindboggling what your knives can do after only a visit to a 220!

    Congrats Mert
