I love going to my parents, Dad's knives are better than mine!

That's ironic, because you are much more likely to cut yourself with a dull knife, since you have to use more pressure and are more likely to lose control of the knife

I was working on something the other day and I cut myself on the Hattori, on my knife hand.

Without the bolster I was adjusting my grip slightly and caught my index finger on the back corner. A dull knife wouldn't have cut me on that one.

yeah, I've had my knife sitting on my board, set something down and bumped my hand on the blade...just touched the blade..not even that hard and sliced my finger really good.
Never had that happen with the old terrible knives I used to use. I had got a finger in the way of one of those once while distracted by something..didn't do anything to my hand. So yes, I disagree with the dull blade thing

I'd do it; not leave them behind, though. Just clean and pack back up for the next time I travel and find myself cooking in an unfamiliar kitchen.

That back corner had gotten me before, too.
That said, and maybe this belongs in the my mom used to thread , but she always cut her veggies with a paring knife by pulling the blade into her thumb I'm sure you've seen that method.
Obviously she was not using a sharp knife

not true, I've done that with potatoes with a good sharp blade and never had an issue cutting myself like that

Huh? I didn't say you weren't using a sharp knife, I said my mother wasn't using a sharp knife. Big difference.

I still think a sharp knife is safer in the long run, sometime dull helps. Just like it is safer to wear a seat belt, though we have all heard the story of the guy that wasn't and it "saved his life".

I do pay more attention to what I am doing with a sharper knife.
