The knife goes between the bones to emerge from the other side of the hand.

If a knife hits a bone in the hand, the bone typically stops the knife.

considering the structure of the hand there is a good chance that the knife just passes thru the space between.

if the stirke has overwhelming force behind it or its a large blade it might evne get stuck in the bone, but anything strong enough to damage/break the bones in your hand carries a significant risk of just outright chopping off something.

Depends on the bone and the knife and how hard they were stabbed. Usually stabbings just go in between the bones, that’s the path of least resistance. Usually they would not break bones at all, neither breaking nor piercing them.

If they’re smaller, thinner bones like the ones in your palm, and someone stabbed you really hard and with a sturdy knife, they might potentially break the bones in your hand while stabbing it, though it’s unlikely.
