That's Just Grate
I have something of an adversarial relationship with our cheese grater. For some reason, applying force to food with my hand an inch or two away from a series of sharp metal edges frequently results in loss of blood. And last night it happened again. I now have 3 or 4 scars on my hands courtesy of our graters.
Still, it's worth it for the deliciousness of cheese (and, in the case of a couple of those scars, homemade hash browns).
