It’s a matter of fact when your knife is not sharp you pull, tug tried to force it, but sooner or later it’s going to slip.” That’s when you get hurt”.
In this blog, we will discuss some important factors about the dull knife and we will see why it is more dangerous than the sharpest knife.
A dull knife is a dangerous knife because you have to apply more pressure when you are cutting. When you have to apply more pressure you increase the risk of the knife slipping or moving and cutting you instead.
Sharp knives and dull knives damage in different ways and which is ultimately safer for you depends on several different factors.
The first is that a dull knife is much harder to control. You are way more likely to slip with a dull knife because the edge doesn’t bite enough. The second is that much less force is required when using a sharp knife. Even though a sharp knife has the potential to cut deeper, the extra force required to cut with a dull knife will cause a much deeper wound if you slip.
A dull knife doesn’t serve the purpose for which it was intended. You want a knife that will cut through something; a dull knife doesn’t do that. It doesn’t slice through the cutting material cleanly and easily.
