    Whenever I see knives with holes in them, I always think of the this episode of the Simpsons:

    The best part is afterwards when Homer adds "speed holes" to his own car using a pick ax (couldn't find that clip though).

    Any chance of getting a Rhino Chop pass around?

    Dude's on FF, so actually I'm sure he would...but not sure if he would be ready for the rude awakening from the feedback.

    If you don't have a barf bag, you can try so kind of fold the LA Times into a bowl (my Aunt used to do that with road maps before GPS devices were common). Happy holidays.

    This was the line that got me. *** is she talking about?! Journalists are so gullible -- I think this Lyon person was screwing with the writer (Mary McVean?). He could have said something like, "I only use carbon steel on spring vegetables -- they're less acidic; while the stainless steel is used for fall melons from our fair trade purveyor. Organic. Free range. Soy, even."


    Cheers,

    Wow, I never thought of putting spyderco holes along the entire edge before. Forget about food release, after enough sharpenings it actually releases the edge itself and becomes a serrated knife.

    Do you mean Guy Ferry? Oops!!! He prefers his new pseudo-Siclian name FIERI nowadays.

    Ok, now I finally read the article, but I am going to be the lone dissenting voice on this one I think. I don't think the article was that bad -- and by that I mean barf bad. Sure we could have made it a lot better and there were a few really bad lines, but we geeks also would have made it too technical so that 90% of readers would have given up and not read it. I actually think the title and lead picture are the worst part and the expert knifemaker was not a good representative.

    With that said, the point about food being cut and not torn is valid. No one here would argue that men aren't the biggest knife nuts. The author said not to cut on glass or granite. Simple advice, true, but still a common mistake by the average person. Yes, I get sick of the Shun and Global branded approach, but I just had a home dinner prepared by a very good chef who used a global, and I have also seen chefs like Grant Achatz use a global. A lot of people and even some pros use them. The author acknowledged carbon knives and dared uttered the word 'patina'. Not a bad attempt at expanding the discussion IMO given space and the fact it is still a blog. The author also advised against knife blocks.

    Anyhow, that is my 2 cents. I studied economics and I often find crap in articles about the economy and flat out mistakes. My wife is a doctor and she often reads articles about medicine with errors. Every specialist can poke holes in print (and especially e-print) articles. They have limitations in space, editors, and need to think about the end reader.

    Just being the devil's (dull) advocate here, and I admit that the article didn't make me barf. Only a little bit of barf came up the throat and gave me that bad taste in the mouth
