I managed to cut the entire fingernail off my left index finger while dicing onions, and never drew a drop of blood. But, man, was the skin underneath that fingernail sensitive!

That's remarkable, Caine! Are you by any chance a sushi chef?

Bought a cheapie new knife. Works great and I love the knife. HOWEVER ...
I got distracted twice ... I was cutting one day and cut my finger, nice good slice on the tip of the finger .. didn't need stitches, but boy did it hurt, and I couldn't believe how much it bled. Two day later, I cut it in the EXACT same place. You can't say I'm not consistent.

If i ever get attacked by my knife, its the tiniest thing and because I was being rough or taking major shortcuts *TOUCH WOOD* - i fall into the "burnt" peoples category

I wouldn't get rid of my knife because of it, but i might give it some extra TLC when i wash it so its nice to me next time LOL jokes

I think its the speed all you chef`s go, you have more important things to do or on your mind. now for me I am not a chef or have thos expensive chefs knives. I am just a plain
old man with all the time in the world, I don`t know or remember the last time I cut myself or burned myself. and I probably don`t do the volume that you do. But I can see
where you are all comming from. And I can appriciate your job.

So far I've only cut into my fingernails, just knicked the finger once. (knock on wood!). Always the same knife, but it's my favorite and usually when cuting onions and I'm trying to hurry 'cause I can't see what I'm doing anymore!
For some reason onions don't bother me when I wear my contacts. If I have my glasses on.... forget about it!! I've learned to go put the contacts in before I need to deal with more than 1 onion.
Wow, I went to some place far far away off subject there. Sorry!

I have to revise my answer now. I cut myself for the first time tonight. I was doing a julienne on a red pepper, using a knife I normally don't use (I had it sharpened last week and wanted to check the edge). Took off a couple layers of skin. No blood. That's a quality sharpening job there.
