I wonder why you thought the stickyness was funny too, specifically. At this point, i would be too self consious to post a video of myself working, although i've thought about it. i would post mainly to get feedback for improvement and not to be made fun of hopefully.

    I don't want to speak for Bienek, but I believe his comments to be fairly 'tongue in cheek' if you will. The Fujiwara(also known as the Kato) is a knife with some amount of speculation surrounding it, based upon its newness to the market, grind, finish, unknown steel, and the fact that it cuts like a MF'r- which might seem a little hard to believe based on its specs(correct me if I'm wrong here Mike in regards to your intentions).

    +1 kato makes fun of many things...my favorite is around 18:55 trimming inside of squash--does make it look like a short delicate knife. Stiction on potatoes (~1minute) is ridiculous...makes me want a Kato!

    I will conservatively say- YOU DO WANT ONE!

    After Mr Henry re-handles mine, I'm gonna put it up for a passaround. It's a truly awesome knife.

    I'm actually next on the Kato passaround with the new thinned out version--in fact I am hoping it will arrive sometime next week. I was hoping it would be less than people are saying--sounds like I'm wrong. What kind of shoes are you getting for it?

    Guys this was new Kato from Maxim on this movie. I am pretty sure that it can perform much much better because I sharpened it quicly, I am not a best sharpener and also I finish on red aoto and I know that this knife loves polishing so you can take it much higher in grit and it will still bite ridiculously.

    andygraybeal: I think that it is funny for Bieniek because this knife is very fat (5mm at the spine) and it cut like a laser. I've got Konosuke HD which is a laser and it doesn't cut potatos like this. Potatos sticks to the knife. And the Kato which is a sumo wrestler cuts everything. Butternut squash?? Like a butter.

    This knife in a hands of pro sharpener and pro cook might be epic. And I heard that this still is a very old Tamahagane.

    Yes so as Josh mentioned already, the reasons to why this video is in awesome thread, and not in knuckleheads is that the man cutting does quite a good job, if you consider him having a new knife and being a home cook. All have different techniques and styles when cutting so I dont look for errors here at all.

    But what I meant was how the knife does its job. Me too am just prep commis but I appreciate wonderful performance. The moments I mentioned, apart from the pepper cutting, shows just that.

    The capsicum on the other hand is just about how carbon steel cuts stuff.

    And one more thing I have this feeling many people here wondered if I am somewhat "lackey" lol to Maksim for writing so enthusiastic review for the knife, but I hope more members now - Josh includes you - checked things out and are happy with the choice

    I'm sending it to Mike next week, all I asked was that he make it look like Darth Vader's light saber
