so i got a cheap, 100€, beginner deba from cleancut today. hand picked it... a beefy fukr. premium aus8 steel i think, lamianted with even more premium kitchen sink SS. i figured i have never had a full size deba, so i think i needed one. so i got one. https://www.cleancut.se/butik/knivmodeller/deba/deba-2-detail i wondered how i could test its quality somehow. then i figured i'd do some kind of stress test. i mean, what could possibly go wrong here? sharpened it up to 3k on a glass stone, took maybe 5 minutes. i think the angle was quite severe. must have been 40-45deg from the factory. i just followed that. then i subjected it to the "beer can test". turned out this was in fact the dura-marathon beer can test the deba had signed up for the actual test... i used my hard use knife. sufficiently hard. this is how it looks after one chop. but i didnt really stop there if you know what i mean. sometime the knife stuck very deep, in a funny way. that was worth documenting. another angle sometimes you get lucky. other side of that. I guess this the equivalent of a hole in one. i split the can in half in one chop. this was like the 5th can or so still going strong obviously. I got lucky here. results!
