I love the rolling cukes. Not only does the blade release the food, it set the food in motion.

So how would you modify the grind to keep those slices from rolling around the table and hitting the camera?:biggrin: j/k. Impressive chopping.

I wouldn't. I'd adjust my technique. There was a reason I left the camera on the board.

I feel compelled to break this out. Forgive me.

Every once in a while I think about trying that. The horizontal cuts still scare the crap outta me.

Well....I can tell you for a fact you're not going to bleed out from a finger cut. Although I've seen many men go down at the sight of there own blood. Lose a finger? Only on carrots

I did have to go to the ER once when I nicked a little artery when I cut off the very tip of my thumb. Showed up using a maxi pad as a pressure dressing. LOL The last time I cut myself badly on the thumb, I played the home version of the game and didn't even have to reach for the super glue. By the way, I had noticed your sign offs in the other videos, but this one was funnier.

if you're using a truly nice and sharp knife, and you know how big the onion is and where it is by touching in, you cut into it justly. You should only be afraid if you're blindly thrusting the blade into the onion. Always realize where your hands, blade, and food object are and create geometry from there; no matter what you're cutting. If you have to manipulate the geometry because your blade is steering, wedging, or not in shape and causing you to use excess force, than you are cutting inefficiently. I cut best when I am just thinking about shapes, where my hands are and need to be, and at what cadence I can perform the task most efficiently (always striving for improvement, of course)

Oddly I played drums for most of my life (haven't in 3 years :( ) and I feel like I apply the same principles of hand coordination and rhythm/cadence, but now I'm cutting **** with the motions and discipline

...i hope I got the point across, it's ******' late if you know what I mean

Okay. So, basically you're saying a caveman should be able to do this and all cooks across the nation should just sharpen their knives and give it a shot... I guess I'll give it a try today... If I don't post in the next few days, you'll know I hit an artery, lol.
