Chris and Johannes are expert turners. They wont get a catch. John Jordan and Mike Mahoney dont use his grind and they dont get a catch. I use a short bevel on my tools but its ground from only one position on the v arm so its basically a regular grind. I do get an occasional catch but its because i do something stupid not because of the grind. When i was expeimenting with a radius grind on a skew which is supposedly catch free it worked just like a regular skew. Lift the handle.too far when making a cut and you get a catch. When cutting the shoulder of a bead i found it harder to find the cut and kicked back just as easily.
