When you start to cut, the knife slips on the food or twists in your hand so your cuts aren't straight.
Sometimes, the knife doesn't even cut - it crushes the food instead.
Being porous, woods can absorb and release moisture and other agents that they're exposed to which will change their makeup, appearance, and sometimes size.
Wooden knife handles have been used ever since the invention of the knife.
