Default Offshore Knife Sharpness

A couple of years back I bought a work sharp and have been keeping all of my knives shaving sharp. Growing up I was always taught that a sharp knife was safer than a dull one. Occasionally when I'm offshore slicing up bait on the cutting board in rougher seas I often wonder what makes more sense. Shaving sharp or a bit duller. Anyone else have a take?

Sharp knife is a safe knife...in the hands of a responsible person.
An idiot can take his own eye out with a wooden spoon, so....yeah, keep'm sharp.

^^Agreed^^

If you can't handle your blade, even in rough seas, then don't pick up a knife.

It seems like every time I come home from a big fishing trip (5-6 days) it takes my hands a month to recover.
Death by a thousand cuts. I’ve tried wearing fishing gloves but I still get nicked up.
I think I’ll try it your way.
Sharpen all my knives and let someone else use them.

For bait, sharp is great. Serrated is greater...
