Sharp Knives - A Snippet

I ordered 4 new Cutco knives as my holiday present to myself this year. 

The delightful salesman, the brochures, the instruction pamphlets, my own mouth all warned everyone that the knives were new and very very sharp.   BE CAREFUL we all repeated.

So, I should not have been as surprised as I was this morning as the new extra long slicer went through the bagel much faster than its predecessor, the old bread knife, had ever done.  Unfortunately, my thumb was in the way of the blade as it found its way, seamlessly,, flawlessly, sharply, and swiftly to the other side.  It got there much faster than I'd planned for.

I need a band aid! led to Do I need stitches? led to this A+ job of bandaging by TBG:

The wound is contained, the pain is gone, and I think I've gotten out of doing the dishes for the foreseeable future. 

Life is good.
