Actually, he wasn't all THAT clumsy; he was just a LITTLE bit clumsy which, coupled with a very sharp knife, translates to a few stitches. Had he been VERY clumsy, he might have lopped off an appendage.

I used to keep my kitchen knives sharper than I do know. I changed that after my grandmother came for a visit and cut herself pretty badly while helping out in the kitchen. It didn't require stitches, but it made me reconsider the wisdom of keeping "weapons grade" cutlery.

A razor-sharp knife coupled with good cutting technique is, by far, the safest scenario... That applies to meat-cutting or tree-cutting.

Yes, professional meat cutters use razor sharp knives. They also wear cut-resistant gloves.

OldOllie: I have to agree with popcap, It's the dull knives that are really dangerous.

I never said a kitchen knife should be dull; only that it shouldn't be so sharp that it severs tendons with the slightest touch.

I'll always remember the night when I was fixing supper at the lodge. The guy helping me was a cop. I asked him to cut up the meat for the stew, and he complained that the knife was too dull. Actually, it was fine, but I told him where to find the sharpening stone. He worked on it for about 10 minutes, and 5 minutes after that, we were off to the emergency room for stitches. No permanent damage, but if he'd left the knife alone, he could have gotten by with a Band-Aid.

"I wonder if they can make this: *sharkblade*"

Yeah but the commission would cost you a second mortgage AND five years waiting period. XD

Hey, he has to make a living too, and if he has to spend so much time on a single blade, the man should be able to charge whatever he wants.


Something tells me he has more than enough to live on.

A friend of mine has one of his damascus customs. Damn I wish I had the money...I've held a few of his knives though and he's really good.

I , want, one!! And I am of the school that those are the safest knives to have in a kitchen. A tool that functions superbly well is always safer. You don't have to put pressure on it and risk it skidding off. In a commercial kitchen most cooks carry their own knives about with them- they know the feel and sharpness of each one. Mine are mostly soft carbon steel- it loses its edge fast but comes up to a razor edge with a few strokes of the steel. But those- ooooh- yummy!!

OldOllie: I have to agree with popcap, It's the dull knives that are really dangerous. The more force that is required to cut, The bigger chance that the knife slips out of hand. Sharp knives are safer knives.

OldOllie:

A razor-sharp knife coupled with good cutting technique is, by far, the safest scenario. When a blade remains reliable in its tactile feedback, the cutter retains the best control. That applies to meat-cutting or tree-cutting. No matter.

Also, I have had the fortune to meet and speak with a gentleman by the name of James Williams who, by virtue of his lifestyle and discipline, is a very capable instructor of self-defense techniques. His flashlight/ink pen combo defense tactics are horror enough to make me believe that his knife techniques might not be lame compared to a gun. Very cool guy to meet. It's rare that I meet people with 100% confidence. Mr. Williams is one of the few.
