    We've been seeing these "Finger Protectors" floating around for awhile... the premise is good but they sell for $10-15 bucks. Why not just make one yourself?

      Okay... First thing you should do, whether or not you want to use a finger guard, is learn how to hold that knife. And use the right knife for the job.

    If you know how to cut veggies properly, you won’t cut your fingers, but if you’re a klutz, that’s another story.

    Um...if you keep your fingers curled like that, you won't cut yourself anyway.
    So this tip was useless. Plus, the reason that restaurant chefs cut so well is because...DING DING DING! Practice!
    There, just practice.

      Make a simple hexagonal shaped tube, leave the bottom open. Fill the tube with lightly packed soil and plant it in your pot or garden. The carrot will assume the shape of the mold, I think? I may try that myself.

    You'll probably need a finger guard if you hold a knife gripping less than 50% of the handle like this goof. Learn how to properly use a knife and you won't have a problem.

      Mike Young I'm not sure, but running a clean blade against something that isn't rated for food safety sounds risky whether you save parts of it off or not.

  • YetAnotherVegan
    YetAnotherVegan Year ago +3

    You're holding the knife wrong. You pinch the base of the blade with your thumb and index finger, then wrap your other three fingers around the handle. Also, with the hand that isn't holding the knife, curl your fingers in toward your palm.
    If you do this when you're cutting your food, you won't easily cut yourself and you'll have complete control of the knife.
    My credentials: I have worked in kitchens for more than 15 years, and have been cooking for twice that amount of time.
    Also, you shouldn't use that knife to chop produce. A chef knife is preferred. That knife is more for scoring or detailing.

  • Tristan Keith
    Tristan Keith Year ago +1

    I love this channel, but the way you cut everything was awkward, to cut you put the tip at a 45* Angle and slide forward and down then pull straight back and then repeat, not hold the knife flat and push down that dulls the blade

    This is great for people who have never cut anything before, but honestly? The best finger guard that exists is constant awareness and common sense. I've been cooking for twenty years and I've never cut myself while chopping/slicing/dicing. Besides, for times when you're in a hurry, these things will slow you down, which will make you frustrated, which will lead to you not thinking clearly and becoming more erratic with the blade.

  • jose rodriguez
    jose rodriguez Year ago +1

    2 things, 1. u can just cut correctly and will never cut yourself 2. u can easily shave off bits of plastic that will be going into your food so this makes more of a risk to your health

  • Spoif

    Do it properly. Pull the ends of your fingers in and run the side of the knife down the protruding end knuckles of your fingers.
