Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Had my son and DIL and grandson and my son's inlaws over for Mother's Day lunch today.  I was showing my son's FIL some of my knives.  Apparently he cut his thumb with one of them.  He didn't know he did it until I noticed blood on his thumb.  It wasn't  a bad cut, just a bandaid fixed it up.

But I was just wondering if this happens to others?

Yes Chuck, open it once, go get band-aids, take a picture, and never open all the blades ever again.

Why does a paper cut hurt out of all proportion to the size of the wound?

Because the paper comes from tress cut down in the Amazon. The same trees the Amazon natives get the poison from for their darts.  LOL

Paper cuts is a great example of something thin cutting, but that won't make a good knife blade. You may notice that some makers of certain steels are all hollow ground or very thinly ground. Anything thats very thin will cut, for a while. Paper, is the perfect, example. Just my humble opinion.

Standard practice for me, sometimes.

Charles, long time ago, when I was about 13/14 my friend an I were outside in the back garden shed, I had an old leather hanled sheath knife which my friend was usuing whilst I went inside for some lunch, whilst I was away,he was trying to cut open a jute sack with it towards him and the knife slipped and he stabbed himself in the eye, thus loosing sight in it, we are still friends to this day-does this one count. (PS we are now 57)

Yes, George, that counts.  Its good he didn't demand an eye for an eye!

When my father showed me his knife collection the very first time, he would check the sharpness of the blade, which made me cringe. "Arn't you going to cut yourself?"  "no, no, I've done this a million times".  Minutes later he would be licking blood off of his wrist as the blood was dripping down from his cut finger.  After he passed away in 2012, I organized his massive collection and found knife rolls, knives, and storage tubs full of brown stains and smears.  I'm thinking blood stains knowing his history and the number of sharpening stones he had.

 

You know the knife is sharp when you don't even feel it slicing your skin!!

Well, when I was around 13 I was trying to "sculpt" a cork to make a cow with my dad's SAK I simply try to make a hole with the blade truned to the wrong side and it closed making a deep cut on the the tip of my finger....was a long time ago and the image in my mind is that it was pretty nasty...no scars today....

Is funny remembering it now, I think it was when I decided to collect SAKs :)

All the time. The worst ones are the unfinished knives. When I'm handsanding the blades before or after heat treat I often slide off and stab myself in the hand with the friggin things.
