    Does hammering of the blade really help food not sticking?

        In response to Uptothehilt

    Maybe somewhat..

    As well as granton indents.

    But nothing replaces good geometry and grind for proper food release.

    In the end, hammer marks are aesthetic.

    Not really. They are pretty though.

    The only gimmicky thing that has been shown to work(albeit anecdotally) is the giant indents on a Glestain.
