That's no guarantee.
If the wet knife slips... or in close quarters nail yourself instead of your opponent.
Over the years in none violent applications my sharp knives have bite me more than once.
With the pedal to the metal... shit happens.
If you pull a knife don't be scared of your own blood... and remember it's slippery.
You do have a point. Back in my Martial Arts years in South Korea, I received a Balisong knife that cut me to the finger bone as I fumbled taking out of the box. I have owned more than my fair share of fighting knives, but never had I encountered a knife with a razor like edge straight out of the package.
In order to practice with it I had to put 100mph tape on the blades. I became really proficient with that knife, but I damn well respected it.
Remember kids, there's no safety on a blade.
