A sheet has to be forged at some point I guess but it seems duplicitous to me
Thanks. Apparently I've been paying attention but not good enough. Plus, I tend to pay attention to Henckels rather than others since I aligned with them eons ago...
I watched the Zwilling video last night and they are perfectly clear about only the bolster being forged in their shop during manufacturing. Maybe tonight I'll have the time to watch the Wusthof videos... but Kartman was pretty clear that they were honest in the video too.
So, ya... that leaves a bit to the imagination and seems like typical advertising rhetoric that may not be completely technically true or fully accurate. "Forged by a cookie cutter", to quote someone I respect... Does one bang of a press constitute forging????
This kind of marketing stuff tends to go in one ear and out the other. I much prefer more technically oriented information. But it does drive me crazy, too, when the admen stretch the truth or misrepresent the truth out of ignorance.
