Today I wanted to share a Product that I had the chance to try with all of you:
So, as most of my friends and family know, I am not a *huge* fan of knives. I’m fine with the steak knives and the butter knives, but if you wanted me to cut up fruits or veggies with a sharp knife expect it to take me forever-and-a-half to do so.
My husband would always laugh when I would cut up an apple with a steak knife (I would really do this!) because I didn’t want the apple move and end up cutting my finger on the knife. I know… I tend to over react when it comes to Sharp Knives (and Spiders)… I’m just not a fan of them.
With that said, I had the opportunity to try these gloves for free and in all honesty I had some doubts about something being ‘cut resistant’. So (because of this irrational fear of mine) the first thing I did was try to cut them with a knife. I know – it sounds silly – but If I was going to try to cut up dinner that night with one of these super sharp knives we have – I was going to see just how ‘cut resistant’ these gloves were.
To my shock and awe nothing was able to cut these gloves (keep in mind it’s not like I broke out a machete or anything – just my kitchen knives). With this new found confidence in the gloves I put them on. They fit nice and tight (I was a size M, so if you have bigger hands I would definitely go with a bigger size!) and were much more comfortable then I thought they would be. I ended up only using one glove on the hand holding the zucchini I was cutting because when I had both on I felt like I might have dropped the knife. So with one glove on I happily chopped away at the Zucchini and Steak I was making for dinner – fearlessly! (well – about as fearlessly as I could)
Overall, in my honest opinion, I really like these gloves because I feel much more comfortable prepping food – so long apples cut with a steak knife!
