Sharpest teeth in the plant world.

Sharpest teeth in the plant world. (Pandanus utilis (Common Screw Pine))

I wouldn't bet against it. One just grazed the tip of my finger- and cut me. I tried to pick up old leafs I cut off with scissors by using bare hands. I'm an old saw at things like this. I couldnt do it. Very sharp- it was instant. I had to use gloves.
