The Sharper the Knife, the Easier It Is to Cut Yourself: MYTH

This one is pretty counterintuitive, but the duller your knife is, the more likely it is that you’ll cut yourself, says McKeller. Sharp knives allow you to make cuts more easily and with less force, so if there is a slip of the knife, you’re not exerting all of your pressure, like you would with a dull knife. Along with that, when you’re working with a sharp knife, you know it’s sharp, so are generally more cautious when using it. The only way to prevent cutting yourself, says McKeller, is to take a class in knife skills to be as skillful as the pros — who, by the way, still cut themselves sometimes.
