When you wash dishes, do you put your knives point up or point down?

I’ve always put them point down so when I put them away, I don’t have to worry about maneuvering around sharp blades when I put utensils away. I can just grab handles. No worries.

My mom and brother put them point up. That scares me when I have to put dishes away. I don’t like knives. I don’t like sharp objects. It took me forever to be able to cut my own apples with a knife because I always feared cutting my fingers.

Just something I decided the blab about since I just had to put dishes away. Points were up. I have still managed not to cut myself. Hooray.

  1. I feel the exact same way, and was just discussing this with my family! My step-father always points them upward because he says when they’re down the tips can get damaged.
    I didn’t believe him, but then he showed me a knife with the tip completely broken off. It was really weird. I still put them face-down though, haha.
