    Maybe I shouldn't have sharpened my Benriner

    Sharpened my Benriner last week. Was cutting fingerling potatoes today into coins, one rotated and my middle finger on my right hand went through instead of the potato. Didn't feel it cut, but it just felt different than when the potato went through it. Took a big 1mm thick oval off the tip of my finger, no flap, through and through.

    Doesn't hurt really, but fck is it going to be annoying to keep this thing bandaged up for the next couple weeks. Not to mention it's going to be sore, I will smash it into everything I can find, and the heat off the grill/oven/french top will remind it is there with a nice throb.

    Oh well.

    I was going to make a custom Benriner blade in AEB-L. I guess that might not be a good idea.

    I was thinking about this last week when I was sharpening it. I figured they were small and an easy shape, someone could make high quality replacement blades for a decent price I bet. I think it would still be a good project, but just sharpen it on a 1200 stone or something. Don't go nuts. And when using it, be extra careful.

    this is precisely why i wear a cut resistant glove when i use my mandolin. i learned that lesson the hard way. anyway, if it were me, i would put a thin coating of superglue on the cut, instead of worrying about bandages.

    Superglue. The only band-aid you will ever need!
