Don't forget about watching the cutting edge if you are putting your hand on the blade to smash. Be careful of slippage so you don't slice your fingers!

Depends on how rigid the knife is as well. Some Japanese knives are easily bent, while others are stiff.
Usually, this is reflected by the price.

I like using the butt end of the handle sometimes. Works good....

Wish i had a video of my dad attempting this with his Kyocera ceramic. yup, it worked out as well as you'd think.

To their honor kyocera sent him a free replacement. (He was honest with them and told him what he did)

this is the one time I'm glad my girlfriend uses her 'garlic rock' instead of one of my knives. Thanks for the video.
