This was a while ago but it caught my eye. As a guy that has cut himself to the bone on both a finger and a thumb with a chef knife while at work, and been witness to a fair share of inadvertent digitectomies, I have to disagree. I don't know what kind of cut resistant gloves you're using but the ones where I worked were basically chainmail and while your hand was certainly at crush/pinch risk if you exerted enough force, you weren't going to lose a finger when using it, as such both myself and many of my unfortunate coworkers would have been better of if we/they had used the glove when appropriate. Should you use one when slicing/dicing some mundane smooth skin vegetable? No, unless you are a total noob or go way too fast. Should you use one when using a mandolin, a grater, or some other situation where you are at risk of scraping your hand along a stationary blade (a risk which is small but the likelihood is heightened over prolonged exposure)? Maybe. Either way they aren't a liability other than making you go slower.
