For the beginners who don't understand what we mean when we reference single-bevel steering here is an example. These pictures are both of soft melon being cut with a lightly gripped push cut by two differently ground primary bevels.

A single bevel Yoshihiro Yauji exhibiting single bevel steering in a simple push cut through melon. You can see how, left to its own device, the knife will inherently follow its single bevel to the opposing direction (i.e., right handed single bevel will steer left).

Image

The asymmetrically ground semi-concave Murata Buho, although will steer slightly & only momentarily, is much easier to control in a similar application.

Please, understand this is not praising nor bashing one or the other knife as each has it's own place, but I hope this sheds some light on something some may have not quite understood. :geek:

Awesome pics and explanations thank Mel.
This leads to another question that I am going to post a new topic on now.

I think this should be pinned. It took me a while to figure out what again was talking about when I first started watching them.

This forum needs a FAQ section or thread to store posts of this caliber.

Preferably the FAQ would be locked (only moderators could contribute). Non-moderators could nominated posts for the FAQ.

Great post.

Thank you. Great demo.

The right tool for the right job.

This begs the questions in what applications do you want to use a single bevel?

I know for making sushi you want a single bevel.

What other foods?


What about 30/70?

Typically, I've found single bevel knives only excel when cutting product thin off the concave side. Sushi, katsuramuki, etc. And then with fileting fish.
