Of course! Too uncoordinated for moonwalking, though.

Better for me than dripping blood...

It's a Microplane brand. I just rinse and dry it after use.

That glove is a great idea to protect fingers

Yes, it's stretchy and ambidextrous. It's nice having that extra layer of protection. My hands are medium size, with long fingers, and it fits fine.

I will definitely be getting at least one of these. If they have extra large, I will get one for Stirling.

I want it on my right hand when I'm using the mandolin (if I get one) and on my left hand when cutting with a knife. I have had serious cuts to the same finger twice this year.

Are they one size fits all or do they come in large, medium, small, etc.? What size glove did you get? What is your glove size?

They offer other gloves too, some in pairs. Mine is one size fits all. I usually wear a medium.

I bought the DxW a mandolin for christmas one year, knowing that she would be slicing 10 lbs potatoes for new year's party. Even bought one of the medieval armour gloves to go with it.

Then, I thought about it a little more. I decided better not. She falls over on the floor at the slightest amount of blood and it wouldn't be a good idea if she was home alone using a mandolin.

It's still in the original box in the back of a drawer. I should use it sometime.

I thought the most dangerous part of using my mandolin was getting it out of the plastic holder everything snaps into. That was kind of tricky.
