I think it's important to remember that "cut resistant" doesn't mean you're suddenly Superman. I always wear a glove when cutting, but I still take reasonable precautions in deference to my klutziness: whenever practical I use my the hand guard start to finish (Borner's hand guard is really nice, and available separately), and when cutting with a knife I keep my food-holding hand's fingers curled slightly inward.
I use these gloves 3-4 times a week with my Borner mandoline and Wusthof kitchen knives, and not a single cut has broken through in the 15 months I've had them. Recently I've been using them almost every day to dice tomatoes without a hand guard... multiple passes guiding food over razor sharp vertical AND horizontal blades. The gloves fit me fairly snugly, so I can feel when I hit a blade... when I do I just stop pushing, adjust my fingers and keep cutting. I skip the guard with tomatoes because they require little force to push through the blades, and the hand guard turns them to mush... I'm much more careful with harder veggies like onions or potatoes, using the guard for as long as possible, then switching to a corner of the guard when the piece is too small for the guard to grip.
I prefer these to the all cloth gloves out there... there's nothing to snag on a blade, etc., the latex makes it easier to grip wet veggies and provides some added puncture protection, and it's easier to keep them clean without running them through the laundry all the time, just using a dish scrubber, soap and hot running water.
Plus they're cheap!
These gloves are not giving me the peace of mind I was hoping for when I purchased them.
To be fair, the gloves are not specifically marketed toward mandolin users. It was positive reviews of mandolin users that led me to purchase them. I would feel confident enough to use these gloves for handling sharp glass or metal edges.
The only drawback is that I could not figure out how to get a different size and would have preferred to have a medium pair, but I still manage with this slightly big pair.
No complaints using these. I bought the larges because I wear size 11 gloves and these fit me very well. Price was great and they were mailed fast.
I have found a surprising second use for the gloves. They work wonderfully to open stubborn jars.

Comfortable and reliable. They break down faster than I'd like (lasted me less than a month with heavy use), but they're great while they last.Published 2 days ago by Jen

They are for sharp long edges. A needle or pointy shard will go right through the weave. Read more
I worked with a lot of sheet metal and these were sufficient. On the first use the grips were too slick and made it hard to grab the material. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Antonio Contreras
It was ok, I don't use them anymore though, as I have gotten better at cutting veggies and things.Published 16 days ago by bookwyrm
