Hi, my first post seems to have caused a rumpus!
I'm glad my post contained that small but important word 'IF'
It just goes to show how language that is not very precise can be easily misunderstood.
The original post talked about a gap in the 'Contact Patch', which is not very precise. However he also seemed to be talking about the food sticking to the knife. Hence my alarm and thinking that he was talking about the contact area between food and kife, not the contact 'line' between knife and chopping board.
Yes I knew that a Gyuto normally has a double bevel, but apparently not always. All three that I have are the normal double bevel type.
It's cool, Greg. Rarely is any offense meant around here. We're just trying to root out the correct information is all.
