Default Electric knife revisited.

The recent thread about electric knives, reminded me I bought one at a garage sale about 3 years ago, thinking I would use it to slice brisket at competitions. It turned out that I did not care for the marks it left on the slices so I never used it again.

Anyway I dug it out cleaned it up and tried slicing some ham, as it turned out I decided it was not for me, manly because I did not like the way it jitters and shakes in my hand. This is a Black and Decker and when I could get it to slice on the spot I wanted, it did ok but it was very hard to control, will not likely use it again.

Knowing that because of the reciprocating action of the blades I expected some movement but this is excessive to me and wonder it they all are like this, or are there better brands with a smother action. Do you have this problem or is it just mine. I really don't see the benefit in using one if you have a good knife.
