Metal hands really are impractical. Although they'd be good for chopping vegetables without accidentally cutting yourself.

If you could grip the vegetables, that is.

2017-11-18 Rerun commentary: This is a direct spoof of Dr No's actual death scene in the film. There's a close up shot of his metal hands scrabbling for purchase on the metal scaffolding.

While metal hands may be practical for some things, I can see that they'd be terrible for things like picking up slices of mango or holding onto the soap in the shower.
