    No, it doesn't. Allow me to clarify my point visually.




    I don't disagree with the point you make; the flaw you cited was just a miscommunication.

    i would shave my balls with any of my knives, if i were so inclined, and they all stay sharp for pretty reasonable amounts of time when used for more typical kitchen knife tasks. i'm not really sure what this thread is about, as sharp can stay sharp.

    About the Hitler thing...I guess we need to hit the strops! Where's that .001 micron compound?


    And the point of the thread is that:
    1. Face shave tests for kitchen knives are stupid.
    2. That guy is a total badass.

    Uh... Thank you for that visual...
    @Eamon: sounds good... except for the face-shaving with kitchen knives being stupid. I cannot agree with that having shaved exclusively with kitchen knives for about 4 months.

    testicular shaving is the next stage, definitely.

    I've never once considered putting any of my knives near my scrotum, but that is just me.

    Stropping on the other hand....

    You know, I seem to remember another thread months ago going into stropping at some point and then rapidly degenerating to this sort of talk...
