I finally found the perfect knife set!!

I cut myself AGAIN! Getting too comfortable with it, I closed it too fast and it got me. This was with my new one week old knife. As often as this happens, I'm starting to think it's an initiation of sorts, bordering on tradition. Granted, I haven't gotten cut by my one month old automatic assist knife (go figure), I'm thinking there's something wrong with it now. The worst cut was when I sliced my belly open through my work clothes with the OTHER other auto assist -I used duct tape because band aids weren't enough.

ANYWAY

I think maybe I should start using THESE knives. At most I'll have a paper cut.

You are not going to believe this but I used those for martial arts training with my students, teaching them how to disarm someone with a knife. I broke the blades off somehow.

Back when I still did paintball, my friends and I used to carry the ones that had fuzz along the edges to hold chalk dust, and we'd use them once we ran out of paint or needed to take out someone silently during a match.

Hey, a kill is a kill.

Worked great till the day Sam thought he could throw one... and thwacked a ref right in the back of the head.

Siu, what line of work are you in that requires knives?

As for me I install carpet and work with these knives every day. Duct tape is the bandage of choice at work. OSHA wants regular bandages, but what do they know?

According to the consensus wisdom found on, or in the Road Bike Forum, "You are doing it wrong!" Ahaahahahah!

I sliced myself on Thanksgiving, cutting up some squash for a soup. I just went and got stitches.

I use Krazy Glue for the smaller cuts and electrical tape & paper towels for anything I can't glue closed.
