I disagree that dull knives cause more cuts than sharp ones. Not paying attention to what you're doing or not using proper technique is the culprit.
Or "helpful" people dropping sharp knives into your dishwater...I had to 2 x 4 train Shrek on that one.

If the person who put the knife in the sink or dishwasher is the recipient of damage from the business end of said knife, the potential to repeat such action is greatly reduced, IMO.

Nothing sharp or pointy is ever left point-up at my house. Stirling has no depth perception, so it's just too dangerous.

Wrong things have gone in the sink. It was guests. Guests are now told not to put anything in the sink, under threat of yelling. After a Solstice party, I found my new (used two or three times) digital thermometer submerged in water in the sink. grrrr

Whether it's friends or family, they either already know or are told to do nothing. My daughters will clear the table to the kitchen counter but no more. Two reasons, first, I don't want to waste guest time with their washing the dishes and second, I have my way of doing things.

I really should take notes from what my mom used to do:

She had 2 tubs similar to what bus boys used - 1 for plates, etc and the other for silverware. Neither had water in it, but both were very clearly labelled. Her guests (including us) always respected her wishes and nobody got cut. She had her own way of washing dishes and handling sharp knives.

I've never cut myself in all my years of cooking. My mom taught me safety skills that have served me well to this day.

My sharp knives get rinsed off and set aside on the counter for hand washing. They are always separate from all the dishwasher stuff.

Unless I use one for slicing the meat right before serving, all of the knives I use for preparing the meal are washed and put away before sitting down to the table (I generally clean up as I go when cooking). If I use one at the last moment, then it's placed on the counter right next to the sink and it's the first thing I wash after the meal. Even if my wife is doing clean up, I will often still wash any remaining knives myself, because she doesn't tend to take care of them like I do.

If that doesn't work then you might have to upgrade to a 2x6.

After that you'll have to pull out the 12" cast iron frying pan.

Be sure to use both hands.
