I was told the 2 blades on the tail can cut like razors. I caught several last year and stepped on the tail while it was on it's back to get the hook out. Being a rookie at it, I then used my rod holer on the beach to push it back in the water and on the pier I used my cooler. I know a sting ray will spike ya, but what about a skate, will they cut you? How do you properly handle and release a skate? Can you hold the tail with a glove and not worry about getting sliced? Does anyone use their wings for cutbait?
