|Stark Safe Cut Resistant Gloves|
It's not very often that I find a product that I actually NEED. Well, ok I find products that I need pretty often. Things that make life easier or more convenient. It's not often that I find things that actually make my life a little safer though.
We spent the first 2 years of Ainsley's life at multiple doctor's offices. I guess it's my turn now. With the tremors, muscle twitches, weakness in my hands, clumsiness, and 432 other symptoms it's rather surprising that I haven't at least lost a finger or two making dinner. I've slowed down on my attempt to learn to sew because of my new fear of sewing my finger to something. It's not impossible, especially if you are me.
With Raynaud's my hands don't always work as well as they should. The other nerve issues that I have going on also have some effect on my hands so handling knives can be risky. I've also dropped several glass items and shattered them. I've learned to be extra cautious over the past few months. I had no idea that cut resistant gloves even existed until I happened upon the opportunity to review the Stark Safe Cut Resistant Gloves. Initially, I thought that they would be exactly as the title suggests, cut resistant. My husband tested them out for me when they arrived. He wanted to see exactly how strong they were before I started using them.
He placed them on and grabbed a dull kitchen knife. It was really dull and probably wouldn't have cut butter. Of course it didn't cut through the gloves. Next he moved on to a steak knife. It wasn't the sharpest knife that we own but it would certainly cut you if it slipped while you were using it. Nothing. The gloves survived. Finally he moved on to his brand new, freshly sharpened hunting knife. Before I could even say anything he put it in his hand, closed his hand around it and pulled it out real fast. I just stood there with my jaw on the floor. Apparently he had more faith in the gloves than I did. Thankfully, the gloves held up and there was no blood loss. FYI..if he had dripped blood on my carpet this review would not have been so nice :)
I've use the gloves every time I slice/chop in the kitchen. I know without a doubt that if the knife or my hand/grip slips that my day will not end with stitches. I have also used the gloves to pick up glass after one of the kids dropped a plate. The gloves are easy to work in and are comfortable to wear. They are very soft. They actually feel like a regular pair of gloves. You certainly can't tell by their appearance or feel that they are cut resistant gloves.
