I would just add Mert does a pretty great KS-profile if KS knives are something you enjoy. I had one for a spell, and while it wasn't really my thing profile-wise, the knife itself performed excellently.
I asked for that profile because it was meant to be a generalist knife that could do everything well, and I couldn't be happier with it. I have a couple of other Tansu's but that one is my favourite, the only thing I dislike is the size of the handle, it can cause fatigue over time compared to some of my smaller handles.
Send over and I will trim it down
What a great guy...
So, I just got back from my holiday and tried out @Imraan's recipe for spiced potatoes. I used my KS and the Tansu side by side to chop the raw potatoes. There is much less stiction with the KS; with the Tansu, the super-polished sides just invite the potato to suck itself onto the super-slick surface and stay there.
To be fair, the Tansu falls through a potato just a little more effortlessly than the KS. Still, I have to give the win to the KS here; pragmatically, it works a little better for potatoes.
Saw that... Looks tasty!
What kind of grind is the mert that you are using? Is it his laser or workhorse?
Were you cutting with the heel or more towards the tip out of curiosity?
Basically straight down near the middle. When pulling back up, the slice would come up with the knife, sticking to the right side.
The KS does this, too, but to a lesser extent (and requires a touch more force).
