At least I can say "mine cuts better than yours" LOL
Its not really a tremendous waste if the user likes it though is it?
Hey, if an owner chooses to paint their Ferrari hot pink with lime green polka dots because it makes them happy, all the more power to them. Not suggesting this is that, just an example.
I personally really like the look of the hollow grind because it's different than all the other Spydie's I have. I also really love the stonewash! I have a lot of options if I want FFG, so I feel no compulsion to make my Southard a better slicer because I don't think it's a poor slicer to begin with. It does everything I want without complaint.
However, what you do with your knife is your business and if it makes you happy then ride that pony. What I would be interested in seeing is a video comparing a stock grind vs the modified FFG and see just how much of an improvement it is.
