    Too easy - most people could have guessed this. But the point of the show is to explain what "good" looks like, not necessarily test the experts.

    Not that it's a problem, it's not really, but just wanted to share. @ 0:33 he meant 'integral' but pronounced something that sounded like.. intregal. I've notcied this for some time now usually from the general American accent. Is this common? For the more aggressive folks, again, I'd just like to know. Any group of people has a pronunciation quirk here and there it isn't Aryan race propaganda.

    Very interesting and informative. However, most viewers (non-experts or professional cooks) could and would easily guess which knives were the more expensive in each category. Very informative though. Thanks for putting it together.

    These are wonderful for #foodliteracy / #cookingliteracy. So many people don't understand that even though he clearly knows which is the more expensive, he's always highlighting the effectiveness and usability of the less expensive knives. This is not a "rich good, poor bad" game. It's a chance to learn.

    For us people that buy their knives at Walmart, this was very informative! For the rest that criticize the information? Why are you even here? You already know everything. 🤪. But! The video is really is about which is more expensive, but what’s more informative is which knife is more useful for its purpose.

    The last few of these I've watched weren't anything impressive. I don't doubt that everyone they get for these tests is a certified expert in every possible regard, but a lot of these comparisons seem like they would be pretty obvious even to a completely untrained eye. "Let's see, we have a knife that is colorful, full tang, made with 5 different materials, multiple piece assembly with decorative fittings and engravings, and then we have this shank with an ABS plastic handle........ Gee, I wonder which one cost more."

    You don’t have to be knife expert to guess which one of the knifes are more expensive in this video. It’s obvious for everyone who ever holds knives in their hands. More interesting question is which knife worth its price, which one has a better ratio of price to the usefulness.

    Come now . . . I got as far as your paring knife comparison . . . Get real. Have both. It is unfair to compare them. It's like comparing a bicycle to a Ferrari. Bottom is is, you get what you pay for and you pay for what you need. When I was in college I had no money. I bought the cheap knife. At 75 years of age, I can afford any knife I want. I still don't buy the hyped knifes. Chicago Cutlery makes decent price for a very low price. Check them out. I just bought a complete set at Walmart for about $18 bucks. And they are stainless steel, so they don't "patina". When they wear out, I'll buy another set. Go figure. Having said that, I enjoyed the video. It is informative. Bottom line is, you get what you pay for. If you are able to afford the best, definately buy the expensive knives, you will enjoy them. But you had better learn how to sharpen them . . . dull knives take lives, or at least fingers.

    If I spend $3100 on a knife, you best believe it's doing more than cutting bread. Gonna perform some sort of sacrifice with it, maybe kill the dragon that's threatening to destroy Skyrim and enslave all of Tamriel. If I spend that much on a knife, it WILL have the blood of my foes on it.

    $60 is too much to spend on a serrated knife. If you're spending $3100 on a knife, your name damn well better be Gordon Ramsay.
