Title says it all.

Anyone use butchers gloves such as these?

Stainless Steel Mesh Hand Glove - Cut Resistant (L) - Amazon.com

The older I get, the more I slash my fingers! :mmph:

I use one when I am slicing with my mandolin/V-slicer, it is much easier than trying to go fast with the clunky hand guard :wacko::twitch::wacko:

That's pretty spendy, but I'm not seeing finger tips on CL at any price.

If you make a clean cut, a good surgeon could probably sew it back on, but that's going to cost a awful lot more than the glove.

Seems more cost effective

I've got one. Made the wife pretty happy when I got it too. She was always concerned about the potential cuts. A black nitrile glove underneath works well and looks good too!

I used to use one when I worked for a butcher. The stainless steel should last a home user for a few generations. The Kevlar ones are far more comfortable, but you can cut through them eventually.

Do you still have fairly decent manual dexterity wearing one of these gloves?

I have used them before cutting up deer, almost needed a pair today but stopped as the knife hit my finger nail when the meat rolled over on me:icon_blush:

I had one of those years ago when I had a boat and did a lot of fishing. Took the worry out of fileting fish on a bouncing boat. It was great.

I can say that I spent no where near that price though, but then it was almost 30 years ago.

Check this out.

These look like the gloves my mother just got me for Christmas. I haven't used them yet though.

My Dad has several pairs from all the fishing he does so I actually just use a pair of his from time to time that he gave me. I like them, especially when I've had a few too many delicious craft brews while smoking up the meats

I've also used them for fishing and work well. :thumb:

Sorry for the bad link. This one should work:
Amazon.com: BladeX5 57100 Classic Cut & Slash Resistant Gloves Cut Resistant Level 5 EN388 CE Approved, grey, Large: Home Improvement

We use this when processing chickens:

Amazon.com: Victorinox Cutlery UltraShield Cut Resistant Glove, Medium: Kitchen & Dining

Not sure if it works or its psychological but we haven't had someone cut themselves since we got them.

The price on Amazon went up!!!

I also use the cut resistant gloves when i am de-boning and trimming.

Cut resistant gloves (http://www.sausagemaker.com/81357cutresistantglovelarge.aspx)

The above link also carries a wide variety of butchering tools and sausage making equipment.

I use them when i'm fully clad in chainmail going into battle against the heathens for the kingdoms of Rothgar..... I mean I haven't used them in home use. I have relatively good knife skills and take my time when slicing and dicing. At the restaurant I worked out we used them when using the mandolin because that thing is a finger hungry monster.
