Friday I was getting ready to carve, picked up the knife and sharpened it. Then I started carving. I had a leather glove on, the knife slipped and sliced into my left middle finger through the glove. No Dr. this time just some butterfly bandages. I now have a better glove to carve with. At least I know I can get a knife scary sharp LOL

Sorry to hear that, I hope that it wasn’t to bad. I know that the second time, I try to cover it up as best as possible. I think that You are making scary sharp a thing to be frightened about. You need to keep Your sharp objects in a canvas bag, made to keep the tools safe, and You safe also! A Mesh glove would keep Your hand good. On another thought, Pick up two gloves. Seriously, take care of Yourself. I would like to see You be safe, and give blood to the Red Cross!

Hrmmmph!
Butterfly bandaids are OK, but if you get a really bad cut try superglue to close the wound. Burns like fire, but was originally developed as a replacement for sutures during surgery.

I’ve used it a couple of times. The worst was when I was looking at the teeth of a saw blade against the sun… I dropped the blade and it slit my arm open in a line of 5 places about 8” long.

Needless to say, I said “Dammit” and got out the handy super glue. I was about 40 miles from town and didn’t want to get blood all over the wife’s car. Amazingly, there aren’t even any scars except for the first couple of inches that got me, probably because those were the cuts that took all the crud off the blade.

Sorry you were cut, but glad it wasn’t too bad. That’s the problem when you have scary-sharp tools. Just one little slip and you’re donating blood. Kevlar, young man. Kevlar.
