    There's a million variations of this on the internet. This one is mine. I eat it with rice.

    This thread has certainly wandered about a bit. The tangents have tangents. Like.

    My parents' wedding China from 1979. I inherited what was left of it when I went to college in 2000. My wife and I have nicer stuff, but we almost always use these.

    My folks had similar plates, used them a lot when I was young for special occasions. That’s why I like it.

    I absolutely love those videos. For one, they are a lot more fun to watch than someone cutting paper. And I get to learn something about technique. Please keep them coming!

    They’re as close to the real thing as you get without holding the knife...

    which describes also what people asking me to help me in my prep get to do.

    Great video, thank you! I really like the way you did this. The slow cuts through the whole thickness of the carrot at different positions along the blade really expose how much the carrot is tearing, rather than being cut. The sound is very revealing.

    No, you are not! Speed isn't everything, and it's not the point for this exercise anyway.

    I was blown away by how well the Herder K-Chef did. I did not expect that at all.

    Uwe Mattern, is that the same Uwe that's known here as suntravel?
    That knife looks like a spectacular performer.

    Speed of cutting only matters in a professional setting. Cut tests are a whole other thing.

    Yeah Speed demons often have the worst looking product. But it depends what you’re cutting.

    Well, wasn't my idea either, but I won't judge the original owner. Although it is an unusal profile, I works well. Doesn't come out in the video that much but it is great on the board. I just wanted to test a Kip in 52100 and that was a good opportunity for me as a left-handed guy. Another one is on its way.

    The Xerxes did a great job, no question. what I don't like on the xerxes and the Herder K-Chef is the fact, that they have bad food release. Buy far the best performer was the Greek knife.

    I agree, the Xerxes looked and sounded the most effortless.
