Blade Etiquette

Somehow I missed Knife Safety Memo #1: offer a knife to another person by holding the blade itself with the sharp edge facing away from one's palm. Accept the knife by saying "Thank you", to indicate a safe reception.

My source of all things professional kitchen tells me that it is bad form ever to touch another person's knives.

I did learn always to ask a penny of someone one had given a blade as a gift, so as "not to cut the friendship" -30-
