    Great presentation, lots of useful information.
    Pet peeve: how hard is it to say 'inTEgral', rather than 'inteRgral', dangit?

    It’s not hard to see in the second one even (any of them) that’s a Bob Kramer knife. Anyone with some knife knowledge can pick all these out. Don’t need to be an expert. The last one ... lol

    So, i guessed all the expensive and cheaper knives, am I a knife expert now?
    Actually, i'm not giving a thumb down, bcs it's educational, but the video should be called "Differences between cheap and expensive knives"

    Knives tend to be vanity objects. I've tried several paring knives, uber expensive to very cheap. What matters most to me is sharpness, holding the edge, easy to re-sharpen, and a thin blade that glides through potatoes and apples. My winner was the Victorinox. Oh, and why would a paring knife be shaped like a mini chef's knife? That's not very smart.

    It was great to listen to his analysis, but a bit of a shame that you didnt need to be a pro to tell which one was cheaper.

    You dont need a expert to see which knifes were more expensive, i was a professional chef and i may know more then the average person but still most people could see easy which cost more.

  • demo tester

    this was way too easy. You should have used similar produced knifes with no big visual differences. but of course a specialist would recognize different manufacturers. So the hole video is questionnable, if not 99% useless.

    Very interesting information, especially with the damascus knife, but theres no reason the price comparison need to exist. It was obvious at a glance which was more expensive.

    I've guessed all just by looking at the handles... Kind of easy when half of those are crappy plastic handles... Wasn't really a challenge for him, but at least we learn the qualities of those knives

    It's not about being able to guess which is the most expensive, so much as it is about learning WHY that is and WHAT makes a good [whatever the video is about] good.

    like these videos, but they are so damn easy to tell apart, they don't need an expert to guess. I could tell every one apart easily from nearly every one of these vids. That last damamscus blade is honestly beautiful... must have been loaned for the video.

    Jeez, these challenges are can instantly see which one is expensive just by instantly looking. Sure we get the explanations for quality and practicality, but at the end, the title is "Expert Guesses"...hardly a guess when you can see. Throw to these experts some challenge by giving almost equal value products.

    Did you really need an expert to determine which was more expensive? Seems like any average Joe could have. The problem isn't the test itself but the chosen knives. They were all too obvious. Would like to see a video that ACTUALLY tests a knife expert vs a silly gimme like this.
