    Cut left handed (assuming you're right handed). Just don't cut yourself 'cause then you'll really be screwed.

    Cut the thumb off of a surgical glove. It should be big enough to go over your middle finger even with some gauze on top of the wound. Then tape the cut end to your finger to keep water getting in.

    This one is most likely to succeed, I think!

    I get cut more than a mandolin than anything else. We had two and there was a cut at least every other week. I finally tossed them. They are sharp and get the job done quickly, but in my experiance always lead to more injuries.

    Wife bought me a very good one of Xmas one year. Thanked her for the thought and returned it to Williams-Sonoma without taking it out of the box. It never made any sense to me to make the blade stationary and push the food toward it with your hand.

    At work, I use a mandolin all the time! I make everyone wear a cut-proof glove with a rubber glove over it when using it, even if they use the guard.

    It makes very short, consistent work of a huge amount of food. Yes, I could cut 70 lbs of potatoes into 1/8 slices with a knife, but why would I?

    So you serve food with little bits of rubber glove in it?
