    I am a machinist and that was VERY interesting. I appreciate the need for a sharp edge more now.

    The cutting edge was actually pushing a wave of the cut material in front of it!
    Just like painting with a full brush, but in reverse.

    Dragonhand, I know!, but how??
    It appears the tools bevel wasn't actually doing the cutting, but that the material being cut was.
    A material can't cut itself, can it?

    The first video looked like they were cutting roast beef.

    There are some interesting parallels between the up-close machining videos and the up-close meat slicing videos, and they certainly seem to attract the same enthusiasts.
