    Are these common for people to use ? I cut myself on a  Mandolin :( . And ever since then I have been wearing a cut resistant glove when using it and have had no issues.  I am loving my mandolin now that I using the glove. However are there any draw back that I should be aware of ?

    I have some steel chain gloves that I use when fileting large fish or doing some butchering work. For other work, I don't use any gloves. I don't have a mandoline right now, but I know that those things are out to get you....

    When doing a search at Amazon for mandolines, always a cut resistant glove accompanies the display.

    Looking at the scars on my fingers, I probably should get some...

    I was looking at the show chopped and just notice how many people cut themselves and I was just thinking to myself why don't they wear cut-proof gloves . It must be som down side them them. But I really haven't found any..

    Anything really cut-proof is rather rigid, restricts your movement - that's the downside.
