What can I say about Utube ?
Anyways , I got really excited because of all the RAVE Utube reviews ! ( Isn't that a warning sign )
Yes , the question begs , can you trust Utube ? ( Reviews )
Anyways , the Sitivien ST-102 was on my interest list , not just because of the RAVE reviews . Butt ( and it's a huge butt ) because it looked interesting . And as long as the blade steel is not rubbish = Hold the phone !!!! Did any online ( Utube ) reviewers do edge retention testing ? Oh well , the ST-102 got rave reviews !
So I did slice rope with the factory edge ...........
And to be 100% fair , I could have been a meanie and called FAIL @ 50 slices .. ( Yeah - rave reviews ) ...
But I put in another 25 slices and we can call it done and dusted @ 75 slices ...
This is really bad performance ......... For any steel , let alone D2 ( Alleged D2 ) Dont forget to check all those rave reviews !
If it had failed at 150 to 250 , then ok . We could call it a bad factory grind ... ( Maybe )
Right now , I am about to re grind the bevel ! & give the ST-102 a 2nd chance to impress or not fail so horribly !
Again , don't forget to check out those rave reviews on Utube ...
