Cutting Yourself...

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is accidentally slicing yourself one of the best feelings? Especially if you're not sure if you did a good sharpening job, what else to assure you other than cutting yourself with the littlest amount of pressure.

It's just you.

 

I just go by feel of how well it wants to shave....how well it grabs hair without actually shaving my arm.

It's a symptom of something wrong with you. Seek professional help. I don't know enough about it, but it's been the subject of multiple studies over decades.

 

Personally, I hate having foreign objects violating my hide. And doing what I do for a living, I consider it a good day when nobody bleeds.

I have accidentally sliced myself on multiple occasions. Never once have I thought, "Wow, it has been too long since I knew my knife was that sharp. I miss that feeling."

 

Seek help.

Yeah, not so much. What the other guys said, talk to someone about that.

I got told by a person that I made a knife for, that it was TOO sharp. I didnt know that was a thing.

Maybe if they're a klutz?

 

Then again, if that's the case, they probably shouldn't be owning a knife! :laugh:

It can be until someone gets used to using a really sharp knife again. I have a problem keeping knives sharp. I sharpen them, and then someone comes along and boogers up the edge, or dulls them without telling me. I wound up used to using semi-sharp kitchen knives, as I don't always have time to stop down and touch up a blade while I'm cooking, and it gets forgotten after dinner during dishes. Anyway, used to using those types of knives, I sharpened two of my good kitchen knives, beyond shaving sharp. I also sharpened the tips, something I rarely focus on as I do much more chopping then I use the tips of the blades. But the whole knife got sharpened. I then used them, and wound up stabbing myself in the wrist. Not deep enough to hurt anything, but deep enough to scare the crap out of me. I have a nice little scar from it, starting to fade a little now, but that was 6 months ago... Once I'm used to using a sharp knife again, I'm good to go, but it's careful consideration of a dangerous tool, and not becoming complacent.

One of the most satisfying feelings is after you have been chewed on by fleas and mosquitos , grab a sharp fish fillet knife and scrape up and down your legs and arms.

It feels so good. Like stropping a cut throat razor on a leather belt.

Got to be careful and focus , don't get too carried away in the moment or else its sushi legs for you. :D:

Same here. I have gone to keeping "utility " knives out on the counter for anyone in the house to use. Then I have my "dont touch" knives for my use... but sometimes someone else will use one and bugger it up. So I have 3rd set of "personal" knives in a drawer that only I use. Everyone knows if they want to use these knives they best ask or there will be a stink about it. Finally I have my own "special" knives... good blue steel Japanese knives and soligen steel knives that I keep in a nice softwood sheathes inside a nice zippered soft case out of the kitchen area that I use when I really want to do something special.

I thought this was one of those “I slept with my neighbors goat and we’re getting married next week” drive by posts. Then I saw the OP post count and realized he was serious.

I was always taught to use a sharp instrument or tool properly and safely, without making yourself bleed.
