Well to me it's a slice.

My .02, I don't think there's an optimum, just something to break the skin. I've gone from a coarse SiC stone to 12K waterstones. I'd eliminate the stropping, and go from there.

Now, if you want to see a push cut (no it's not me)...

Thanks, Steven. I got exactly the same advice from someone else as well. Is this your own experience or some sort of "common knowledge"?

Oh snap! Now that's an edge (and a skill set) I'm lusting after!

Tomatoes are my bane as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

That guy does have some of the best cutting videos I've seen.

I won't dwell on it, but I think it's specious reasoning to tie results to one particular stone.

I was actually going to link Salty's channel but you beat me to it :P

I will post another video though.



All his knives are stropped, you can see his progression in a few videos of his.

I polished my CCK cleaver to 0.05 microns and it will cut practically invisible tomato slices without needing to hold the tomato. You really dont need a toothy edge.

Dwell all you want and you would be wrong again. I don't care if you (or anyone) buy my stuff for sale or not, I have happy customers. Proof is in the pudding (as is shown by other's advice).
