Stiction how stuff sticks to other stuff, basically hah.

In this case I was referring to cut food sticking to the side of the blade. Some people want a knife where food never sticks and some people don't care.

Some people might need a laser and some people may need a workhorse knife for whatever there particular reason and situation is. The laser being really thing and light and the workhorse being a little thicker and possibly heaver. Talking about the blade thickness not edge thickness.

Oh I don't mind food sticking to the blade. I don't know if I need a laser or a workhorse, I just wanted a crazy sharp knife and this looked great. I am liking the laser aspect though. Don't see why it can't be my workhorse. It can do everything but break through bone, right?

We actually misuse the term stiction around here. But since my dynamics professor told me there is no such term, I'm OK with that. I know, it's in Wikipedia so it has to be true...

ROBENCO <> OOTB sharpness is a factor I pay very little attention to; I've sharpened every knife I've ever purchased right OOTB... excluding my Teruyasu & Koishi 240gyutos. Those were the only edges I've ever liked OOTB. In retrospect, I played with the Masakage for shits & giggles, & I would had preferred my edge. If you're at a point in which you haven't even learned how to change your oil, I'm sure the stock edge will impress you before or after stropping.

Stiction test examples:

The lasers are usually so thing there typically isn't any convexing so they can stick to cut food more. But most of it is personal feel some people like a heavier type knife and some people want a really light thin knife.
