I was surfing Reddit on my daily content trawl and saw the above posted by user Durakone. Apparently his knife-challenged sister used his Shun Ultimate Utility Knife to cut a frozen pizza – directly on a cookie sheet. In addition to making me physically cringe, the incident inspired me to ask:
What is the worst act of knife-knuckheadedness you have ever witnessed? Was it by you or someone else?
I certainly qualify for consideration with my little axe incident. I also have four stitches in my index finger from a moment of carelessness back in Scouts, though that was a pretty routine incident.
My mom has a drawer full of kitchen knives, most much nicer than my work-horse Wusthoff Classics. But they are chipped and dull from this abuse. Not that she cooks much anyway.
TTAK Reader Spencer has made his views on batoning abundantly clear. I am sure he is secretly smiling at David’s busting his Benchmade 665 subjecting a fine tool to such unconscionable abuse.
I am sure we have all witnessed countless people prying, beating, chopping, and all sorts of other boneheaded knife acts. What tops your list?
