Sounds interesting. Some of the things discussed by hypo-sharpeners who fret over smallest of detail are in the article, like micro or nano serration... interesting
Needs a more technical article for knife nuts- like what do they mean by ""sharp" sounds like it is primarily in the low included angle, I don't know  :) another Ginsu ? Been awhile since space age has been a selling point :shrug:

Lotsa hype, but a good looking knife.  I'll wait until it gets in users' hands a while before I jump.  Bet it's a biatch to sharpen when it does need it.

I think one might wait a bit so the hype sifts from the facts.  They talk about sharpening angle like it is a revolutionary development.

If you were really concerned about those tiny metal bits you could swallow one of these...

On the metal in your food subject I will sleep easier having read that link.   :lol:
