Keep calm and keep cutting!
If your knife is always sharp means you are not using it enough!
Locks come with keys or combinations, folding knives don't.
We all do what we can.
Not really a common saying but:
"There is a reason "they" need to borrow your knife."
I keep a knife I don't mind getting messed up on the truck for anyone that needs to borrow my knife.
The people that ask to borrow my knife at work tend to tear knives up quickly and easily no matter the cost or quality.
Many, many years ago, my Aunt handed me a knife. But she wouldn't let go of it. She explained that I had to acknowledge that I had it, with a "thank you". No "Here you go." She worked with a Girl Scout troop and that was the way they did it. Some things you never forget.
An old gray beard man say, he who uses knife as fidget toy, gets blood on everything touched.
You can’t blame a tool for doing what it is designed to do. If you injure yourself it’s user error.
Stay focused on what you are doing with the knife. Do not let your attention drift on to something else until you put the knife down.
All folding knives (regardless of lock type) are fixed blades that come pre-broken from the factory.
It’s better to have it and not need it, than it is to need it and not have it.
Don't take a knife to a gun fight.
Rule #9. Always carry a knife!
A dull knfe is a dangerous knife. Another one is use the proper tool for the right job. A knife is for cutting not prying or hammering. Mostly folders I think for the last one, but good advice for fixed blades too. I am not one to baton with my fixed blade knives, others can, but I do not.
I cut as I need to direction-wise, but generally speaking, always try to cut away from your body. And don't pee on electric fences.
Good advice in the posts as usual.
The Tao Te Ching says:
Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.
Do not unfold me without reason; do not fold me without honor
Whenever you use sharp and pointy things, be totally focused on using them right. Never use a knife casually, or worse absentminded. A knife or an axe, a machete, a woodchisel, hey even a screwdriver can do bad damage if you mess up.
I see that as being quite Spanish. Navaja times...
Don’t close your serrated Leatherman blade on your finger; it may look safe with its hook end but it’ll still slice you.
I now have a silly plaster on the cut.
