I guess I shouldn't be too worried, since Ballistol was intended, among its many other uses, as a medicinal dressing oil.
My worst bite to date was while testing a freshly sharpened Rescue Jr blade. Drew my thumb across the blade at a point and it bit right in. That one healed in about a week unbandaged.
My Calypso Jr. is always the one I'm worried most about, but it's never bitten me, even after I got close to a needle tip back on it. Remember, cuts from a sharp knife heal faster than those from a dull knife. A dull knife will rip and tear more. A sharp knife produces a clean slice that goes back together faster.
Wise man say, forgiveness is divine. Remember that when your <img src="http://www.spyderco.com/forum/spyder.gif
