@ Brandi thank you :) @ myjunk do you have or a know a video that shows the proper way to hold the knife because I tried the techniques in the video and they worked fine for me. Better than fine in fact it cut my cooking time in half.

Such a creative video! I love all the techniques and the filming/editing is so much more interesting than having someone simply explain the techniques.

Are you kidding me? The person in this demo isn't even holding the knife correctly! Maybe you should back up and start with Knife Skills 001 - Holding the Knife - and have someone who knows what they're doing make it!
