I wonder how many people new to his channel will comment on the way he speaks.
TLDR, he's a bit out of his element, and the video is most interesting as a paradoy of his usual knife review. Mr. Olamic Cutlery and Grimsmo Knives speaks of diminishing returns, LOL
He's a good guy, and he's speaking to an audience that is also out of their element with that stuff so I guess it makes sense.
Edit**Sorry I didn't get your knife references. I found his channel because of his watch reviews
wow, I love Nick's watch reviews, but...huh? He appreciates a polished knob, hehe.
Fancy watches are out of my league, so I blanked entirely on that aspect of Nick's reviews. He does do some inexpensive watches, but slippery slope...
He needs to stick to watches, that was terrible. ABX testing with a focusrite, WTF. Your deaf Nick!
To his credit, Nick covers a wide range of knives and has a somewhat standardized format that allows one to make comparisons. Very much like good audio review should be. Also nice, he does disassembly and maintenance videos to accompany is general impression videos. But it has been a long time since I've bought anything based on or inspired by his reviews
I mostly know Nick for his knife and watch reviews. Seems like a standup guy. I got into those poky, slicy, stabby things last year. Currently rocking a Hinderer Half Track Wharcliffe. Great EDC knife.
This guy is quite the character - I actually love this review. Very layman and informative. "We're" not his audience.
Same, I wasn't bothered by the review. He's not a member of ORFAS or an ASR lackey so a layman's view is somewhat refreshing. Hopefully, it gets more people into the hobby.
My first knife purchase in about 6 months, a new version Bradford chef knife, https://bradfordknives.com/culinary/499-chef-knife-AEB-L-Steel.html. AEB-L is a great steel for kitchen use. It will replace a 30 year old knife that requires frequent sharpening,
