I used a santoku for a long time that had the granton edge and it never had any useful purpose. They did offer a major drawback. I used the knife long enough that as the edge was worn down from sharpening I finally reached the bottom of the dimples. Granted the sharpening method I was using at the time shortened the life of that knife, but it would have happened sooner or later anyway.
I want a glestain I just fear they are over priced .... That is one thing I have seen grantons do! Make a knife COST more! ***?
Least Glestain is really unique and everyone says they actually work. Before Jon opened his shop and was still cooking he and I talked about it once and he said the Glestain was the only time he EVER saw dimples work. The rest have no excuse for price increases IMO
