Would you rate yourself as an expert with the use of a knife in the kitchen?

I used to be. Not anymore. I haven't practiced in years. I used to be able to make flowers out of apples and all sorts of things

I've learnt that knife skill in the garage and on deer doesn't transfer very well to knife skill in the kitchen.

I'm pretty good with knife tricks but not in the kitchen. I use a butterfly knife.

I'm reasonably good with knives in the kitchen, but certainly not an expert.

I may be aicmophobic, but at the very least I'm deathly afraid of sharp objects. Never used anything sharper than a butter knife in my life.

I feel you there. I'm not afraid of the sharp edges, but I'm terribly clumsy and if I were given anything sharper than a butter knife I would likely never get anything cut.

I wouldn't say I'm an expert with all of them as I'm not proficient making fruit shapes for displays. Some of those people have incredible talent.

You work with oral tools. I've always been suspect that the metal plaque scrapers damaged the enamel somewhat. Is Enamel the same hardness for everyone from the aspect of a hardness scale?

Enamel is pretty durable. "Hardness" can be measured a number of ways. It can vary from person to person and can even vary on different surfaces of a single tooth. If enamel is weakened, it can be chipped. A bigger risk is the long term effect of

abrasives on teeth. Once again, enamel is generally pretty resistant, but dentin and cementum (the internal "bulk" of the tooth and the thin covering of the root) are much more susceptible. Even aggressive brushing with commercial toothpastes have

been implicated in the progression of lesions at the neck of teeth, sometimes referred to as "abfractions". But to your question regarding enamel with the scraping from cleanings; plaque is soft, and calculus (while hard) is MUCH softer than enamel.

I meant calculus. Pardon my lack of specificity. I had heard some toothpastes can abrade teeth and this is what gave me pause about the scraping tools. Thanks for the info.

This is perhaps the strangest thread ever. From knives to dentistry to calculus in less than 10 comments

As a hunter and fisherman, I'm still probably better in the kitchen, but I'm not an expert at either.
