Why would you cook with a knife that you can't turn upside down with two fingers while you drop a cut grape over it?
>>
I just buy knives at the grocery store
when they get dull I just get a new one because they are like $8

chef knives are stupid. Knife technique has been developed to make the best out of a poorly designed tool
a back woods retard with an ulu can do all the things a chef with an entire knife kit can do

its just important you understand, you are using that tool because it's the tradition that was taught to you, not because it's the best for the job you are doing
>>
Do any of you assholes know the bevel on that blade? This is like circus for idiots who don't get blades.
>>
>>9208352
Probably. I get them sharpened with a linksy sharpener and guide, especially before Thanksgiving, but am a compete shit about maintenance. This goes for all things. I hate doing my laundry, cleaning my guns, making my bed, or even running anti-virus scanners after I'm done computing.

Whatever, I can cut things fine, but that sharpening is too impressive for me to even remotely expect.
>>
>>9208431

Tossing a grape on a blade is embarrassing. You do that when you sharpen to 20 degrees or less and no one does that. You're not making a razor blade, you're making a knife.

>You do that when you sharpen to 20 degrees or less and no one does that

but my nakiri was factory sharpened to 12 degrees and I've maintained that for the last 10 years. In fact, my Wusthofs were sharpened to 18 degrees and have been maintained at that angle for the last 5 years. Fuck, even the $12, piece of shit special "chinese" cleaver I got from amazon had a 20 degree edge on it, and I've only had that for 6 months.

Do you know anything about kitchen knives? Have you studied any culinary cutlery beyond the micro-serrated POS "knives" that Wal~Mart sells? Maybe you should educate yourself before you speak out of turn again, junior.

bruh, your link just proved my point:

>"A 17 to 20 degree angle covers most kitchen knives."

earlier, you said:

>>You do that when you sharpen to 20 degrees or less and no one does that.

and then the link you posted actually SUPPORTED my claim that 3 out of 4 of my kitchen knives were factory sharpened to 18-20 degrees.

20 degrees is standard chef's knife thickness, 15 is what's trending. Of course, keeping it sharp is a whole different matter.

I've never owned a knife at 12 degrees, so I guess I'm speaking in hyperbole, but the point still stands that most modern Western knives are factory sharpened to around 18 degrees, while Japanese knives are closer to 15.

Still definitely under 20.
>>
>>9208873

welp, I use this. https://www.amazon.ca/Chefs-Choice-AngleSelect-Diamond-Sharpener-White/dp/B001CA5LZ6. It's a 20 degree sharpener, because I got tired of ruining my wrists on a whetstone. 15 degrees is only useful if you have the steel to hold that edge. Who uses katana steel in the real world, day to day. It's just infantile. If you're a weeaboo, sure, enjoy, just don't subject normal people to that.

If you add a lot of rotation in the direction of the blade before dropping the grape on the knife, wouldn't that make it easier for it to cut as it lands? How do we know the knife is sharp and that he didn't add a crazy spin to the grape before dropping it?

Actually I don't even like knives as sharp as the one in OP's webm. I prefer sharpening at higher angles, like 20°+. I feel I have more control if I have to exert a little bit of pressure, I don't immediately cut myself if I accidentally touch the edge and the edge lasts a lot longer.

So I put a 10 degree edge on my general purpose chef's knife a couple of months ago, as a joke. It cuts very well. I'm not really seeing any downsides to a very thin edge, except for the fact that it really seems to dig into my cutting board. It doesn't seem to dull that fast, and I don't see any visible damage on the edge despite subjecting it to some abuse like cutting through pork bones.

What's even the point of having a good knife besides saving a little bit of space? I mean, if you live in an apartment, I guess I could understand, but otherwise you're just a hipster faggot and should KYS.

Want chopped onion/shredded carrots/mirepoix? Put it in a food processor (with or without the shredding attachment). Want something minced? Put it in there for longer. They also sell this shit frozen now.

Cutting broccoli? Use shears. Breaking down a chicken? Use shears. Again, you can buy this shit already broken down for you. Are you poor?

Want tomato/onion/pickle slices for a sandwich? Use a mandoline. Want french fries? Use a french fry cutter or mandoline attachment. Buying sliced tomatoes I absolutely do not condone, but why the fuck are you making sandwiches at home? Are you poor?

You could get a food processor, mandoline, and shears for like 1/4 the price of a good knife and sharpening stones.

If you disagree, then you're just confirming to me that you're an insufferable millennial who watches No Reservations and wants to be like Anthony Boring-as-fuck-dain.

I've personally always keep my knives at grinds based on their metal type, and what I'm using them for.

If it's a German-style steel/knife, I keep the angle at 20-22 because I'm going to be using it for a lot of tougher food products and I don't expect it to be razor sharp. At a really shallow grind that soft metal would be more prone to denting the edge if you're hacking through chicken bones and stuff.

If it's a knife with a higher Rockwell rating like 60-62+, I keep the grind at 12-15 so that shit glides through everything effortlessly, but obviously with softer foods.
