    A bit of a mess, but... he was damn fast, when he stopped looking at the knife to look at something else for a moment i feared an accident would occur XD.

    It was so fast, i couldnt confirm if the knife wa serated or not <_<.



    For those who have yet to see this video...

    I always wonder if this guy ever did get the job /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif

    Turning that onion on the side, that's the dicey part.

    Had to watch that onion guy a few times. The trick is he doesn't go all the way through,

    (but this is much faster than the standard half at a time way )that's why he can turn the

    onion sideways without it going everywhere.

    And my guess is his knife is serrated, by the scraping sound it makes going thru the onion.

    Besides I don't think anyone in his right mind would look away while chopping that fast

    with a  really sharp smooth blade knife--diced fingers slow you WAY down,.

    But the onion is so wobbly on its side.  That's just a little scary to me, but with a serrated knife that would make sense.

    And the potato chips guy, wouldn't some of them come out more cooked than others?
