Also, do I get it right that the hook is on the underside when cutting right handed parallel to board?

I think he means that when doing horizontal cuts (e.g.: when dicing onions), the tip of the hook will be facing the board.
The food release is really impressive IMO. The question that remains is how much pure cutting ability(lazering through food) is sacrificed to get that sort of food release.
Yeah, this is an interesting point. Coould it happen with the hook facing down as well? Maybe depends on the ingredient being cut and which cuts have already been made in it. Will be fascinating to see how it works in practice.@Nemo my point was, if the hook was facing up, it could become quite an annoying task to get the knife unstuck because gravity would push whatever is laying on top of it against the hook, so lifting the knife won't help.
Whoa that food release is insane!
