    Okay, I'm convinced.

    Benchmade knives are super super SUPER duper sharp. I need to put them all away now.

    Got another new knife yesterday. Stabbed myself (again) with one of the other ones. And today I cut my fingers three separate times playing with them. Didn't get cut with the new one yet. It's an auto assist.

    But I did bleed all over the new one when I got stabbed with the other one. Had to clean the insides of the new one because of this and I didn't even use it on anything yet.

    The worst time I cut myself was last month when I slashed myself below the belly button. Had to use duct tape because there was no band aid big enough and I didn't want to leave work.

    I really shouldn't be in my line of work. I know all the safety rules and how to handle knives properly it's just that I get negligent or distracted.

    Ah...you're a cutter. My mother is a cutter in the kitchen. I'm a burner...boiling water, red hot oven elements etc.

    I'd rather have a cut than a burn. Cuts are much more cooler.

    I use one like this daily, haven't ever cut myself with it.


    It's nice because the brass dial locks the blade in any desired position. Unscrew it and inside is storage for about 20 blades (I modified it with a Dremel for both blade storage capacity and extension). The pommel grip is handy for smashing in proud drywall screws. I've actually been made fun of by other carpenters for carrying such a heavy beast of a knife, but I love it. Had it for about 10 years now, not a whimper out of it.

    Betcha these are sharper, and they're meant to be dragged across your skin.

    Actually the new knife I just got, some people posted pics of them shaving the hair off of their arm with it.

    I've tried the fingernail test (where you let the weight of the knife 'catch' your nail when held and dragged at different angles) and I ended up whittling it.

    Very nice. Who makes it?

    Is it just Home Depot*, or are nice drywall knives harder to find nowadays? I went in search of the standard Stanley 99E a few weeks ago and couldn't freaking find one. All there were were new-fangled weird plastic things. Barf.

    * Yes, I realize that Home Depot is in general a festering hive. But come on, it's a knife.

    It's a Stanley, made in England.

    Home Depot is a step up from Harbor Freight, but just barely.

    Check the used/antique tool stores for that knife,guys. And Lady Siu you should not play with knives as soon as I read your first post my thought was"What did she cut now?" and I was right. Remember as my Grandfather always told me"cut towards your chum not your thumb".

    Not even the same thing.

    That's model is like the cheap utility knifes available anywhere. It'll retract when you don't want it to which is actually quite dangerous. The most common type you'll see a professional drywall contractor use is fixed and non-retractable, like this.


    Sturdy, reliable and safer than a flimsy retractable. The only downside is needing a screwdriver or coin to change the blade.

    I do lots of trades besides drywall, so I spent a little more and got something more versatile.

    Are you playing with a balisong, or just a plain old folding knife or something...?

    After a few nicks the first week, I haven't cut myself in the 3 years I've shaved with straight razors.

    The easiest time to cut yourself with a new knife is when doing a demo.

    Are you left handed??? Sounds like something I do when I start playing with edged weapons.

    Somebody take the knives away from Sui! There's no reason you should be cutting yourself that often with blades....no reason. Didn't someone teach you not to play with knives?

    Seriously, this isn't the first time siu has reported that she has cut herself. One of these days she'll report that she has killed herself.

    I need chopping lessons too. Sliced a teeny bit off my finger with a brand new kitchen knife a week ago, and it still hurts. Damn thing slipped on the last bit of the onion, just as I was thinking how sharp it was.
