I did a search of "injuries" but the best discussions seem to be in the Professional section, where I am not supposed to post.
On Dec. 31st I was cutting vegetables too fast & carelessly with a new sharp knife, and sheared off a nice segment of the nailbed of my left hand middle finger. I could not function with my hand for over a week as it was pretty bad. To make things even more exciting, I have never bled like this in my life and I was so scared, but got it to stop eventually. To this day, the nail still hasn't grown to the finger tip. Anyway, this is what I am leading up to:
I simply don't want this to happen again. So I have been looking for one of those mesh gloves that I saw a professional sandwich-maker using at the supermarket deli section and was wondering if anyone here uses those things. What is your opinion?
I asked some cooks and they all smirked and snorted and said they never use such things; everything is my fault, blah, blah. That is true, but **** happens. I guess the woman at the deli was using one because she was forced to by some rules & regulations.
P.S. I hope I am posting in the correct place.
