    back of the head hair test

    Okay, I'll be serious and piggy back on @stringer's thoughts... I've done all manner of "edge testing" to include the hair on the back of the head thing. Most of it, for me, if I'm being truly honest with myself, is novelty. My knives are all different and I sharpen many of them differently...

    I can only give you my opinion but I suspect it is shared, to one degree or another, by many others. There's absolutely nothing wrong with buying European style brands but once you slip past about $100USD they're short comings just become more and more apparent. European knives are workhorses...
