one of my pet peeves
My knife skills have improved over the last couple of years as a result of watching Jamie Oliver’s cooking shows on tv. There’s a man that can handle a knife.
Which leads to the question of why is a dull knife more dangerous?
You need more pressure to push a dull knife through, for example, an apple skin. If it slips off to the side the combination of (admittedly dull) blade + force = ouch. Yes, a sharp knife is going to cut you more easily, but if you know it’s bloody sharp, you’re going to be more careful… yeah?!
