The Guiding Hand

While one hand controls the knife, the other hand controls the product being cut. Proper positioning of the hand achieves three goals:

1. Hold the item being cut.

In Figure 7.5, the item is held firmly so it will not slip.

2. Guide the knife.

Note that the knife blade slides against the fingers.The position of the hand controls the cut.

3. Protect the hand from cuts.

Fingertips are curled under, out of the way of the blade.
