Good point. A little known fact about many single edged Japanese knives is that not only the "flat" backside is hollow ground, the front side relief bevel is as well.
Bottom line as far as I am concerned is that even if grantons do something, they don't do it all. Bits and pieces still stick to the blade and need to be wiped off. One celery slice or ten celery slices can be removed with the same motion of a finger with no wasted energy, so what's the big deal?
Besides, I think they're ugly. Also, I associate them with WalMart knives.
