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.
