    Cutting Performance Videos

    Folks, I am a bit slow on getting these made and getting them out to the public. I was torn between getting a new piece of equipment - a camcorder (already have a digital SLR camera), or get a new smartphone with 4K video capacity. In the end, I went with the smartphone to keep things minimal, and now I am waiting for an attachment for my tripod to arrive so, so I could start producing these videos.

    The goal of these videos is to demonstrate geometries that I offer, and also, on my blog I will talk about cons and pros of each. While I am at it, I will talk about my choices of steel, profiles, types of knifes, handle ergonomics, etc.

    These are geometries that I use:

    - Convex 1 (Carter)
    - Convex 2 (Kato)
    - Asymmetric Convex (Mizuno)
    - S grind 1 (Shigefusa)
    - S grind 2 (Koichi)
    - Sword grind (Heiji)
    - "Chisel" grind (single bevel with a hollow back)

    I will post videos on my web site, but will link videos to this thread.

    Cannot tell you how excited I am for this! Always looking to learn more.

    Also really curious what the "sword grind" is.

    Heijii knives is a perfect example of a "sword grind". It has two tall convex bevels under a shinogi line. There are some other makers who do that on thinner knives. I have done only a handful of knives in this geometry, but am familiar with it.
