Let's face it, knives are weapons, and you need to be careful with them to prevent injury. Here are a few tips to stay safe:

--Keep your knives sharp. Believe it or not, a dull blade can be more dangerous than a sharp one because you're using more force to cut.

--Draw the knife away from you to cut and slice

--When you're gripping food, curl your fingers inward to protect them as you're cutting.

--Make sure your cutting surface doesn't slide. You might want to place a damp towel under your cutting board to keep it in place.

--Never put a dirty knife in sink filled with soapy water. It could be dangerous if you don't see it and reach in to grab it. It could also hit other items in the sink and damage them.

--Carry knives with their blades down, and store them in blade-down position.
