    I was involved with a full on knife fight in the kitchen. Well, sorta. He had the knife.

    Luckily it's rare that it happens but scary nonetheless.

    Should add that i was 30% trolling and 70% worried and curious.
    Combine that with the US very, very open gun laws and it explains quite a few things.

    Is this really so common that it's something to actually worry about?

    Given the number of people in the country the incidents are not all that common, but there are enough that one has to keep the possibilities in mind.

    I have opened restaurants all over the country and inevitably there are a few people who don't make the cut after the first week. It certainly makes you think twice when you have to make cuts in cities like Detroit and Brooklyn, but I have never had an incident.

    usually a gun doesn't come into the picture, always a possibility tho. But having a knife right there even with any kind of fights can be scary.

    I have seen alot in my 40 yrs. in Hi. hotel kit.The worst was a good friend of mine was Sous Chef at Sheraton Waikiki.A unstable cook came into the Chef's office and killed him with a knife.It was senseless & a dark day for us who knew Tom well.
