Works really well. I've used it along side Richard Bertinet slappy technique.

I didn't understand what the baker was saying, and so I don't really see the point of all that 'chopping'; it looks as if he were using the pate brisee method of making pie crusts.

The plastic bench knife is being used to stretch and mix the dough in what might be termed a "micro frissage".
