    Are we reading the same thread? o_O
    But definitely there are similarities between knife nuts and fashion nuts. You guessed it, it’s the nuts part.

    For me there is only one thing that has to be thin: right behind the edge. Otherwise, I like good food release and some weight. Got used to serious asymmetry. I want some 'meat' on the right face.

    One thing missing from this discussion is the high level of performance of lasers pared with a relatively low level of maintenance.
    Both stainless and carbon lasers sharpen up easily and don’t require much for maintaining finish, no cladding that looks fugly.

    I purchased a Sakai laser a while back that had been used for literally years and never thinned. Thinning it back into shape took hardly anytime whatsoever. Infact one could take a laser and thin it until it’s edge is as thin as a strand of hair without a lot of effort.
    I’ve seen “extra thick extra harden” Sakai lasers periodically pop up from time, always wanted to try one.

    Love lasers. I'll take a little stickshun over wedging any day. The day I scored a Tad inox here for about $250 w/ a Stephan handle was one of my happier days. With a laser I feel like a Jedi. With a WH I feel more like a storm trooper. Apologies if this was supposed to be a strictly serious thread...

    Easy on... its just a bit of market research. You don't do market research? Personally I found that skinny jeans had very poor leg release but thick workhorse denim wedged a lot....
