I mostly use a diagonal slicing motion with Nakiri: light down and forward simultaneously

This can be seen in this video:

Am I the only one too dumb to understand why he keeps rinsing the sections off the blade into the sink?

I think there is a container in the sink.

See comment at 1:21 of the video.

Thanks, I must have looked away.

ETA: Now I know where the word "negimaki" comes from.

Nothing wrong with being fickle! In fact, I think it's good...otherwise, you end up not getting what you're after!

I don't think you're at all out of line. Quite the opposite. If only everyone considered their knife purchases so carefully.

I just grabbed the HH to do a carrot, potato, and cabbage test with slow push cuts. It was surprisingly relaxing. The release going slow, not aided by product pushing the carrot or potato off, wasn't good. Every other cut, perhaps, stuck. The following cuts pushed them cleanly off. Not a problem for me, but certainly in line with your issue. And now I have a slaw for lunch.

Whats the difference between chopping and push cutting?

KnifeFanatic usually alternates push, chop & rock cutting in his review videos.

See example:
