Hope shes OK.

I stabbed myself once with a pyrometer (sp.?). In through the pointer finger, out the other side, in through the middle finger, and out that one also. They were kind of stuck together, but a little bit apart. It didn't actually hurt that bad until the doc took it out. Whoa!

Mrs. Jeff,

So sorry to hear of your accident<img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>. I tell my wife to be careful every morning. She's the Cook/Baker at our High School. Neverhtheless she sometimes comes home with cuts and burns. Hope your hand recovers completely and you don't have too much discomfort. Take care<img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>.

She says thanks to all.I cleaned and dressed it this morning for her does not look near as bad now.They did not put any stiches in the entery hole so that anything that might have been on the blade could work its way out so she can't close her hand with out the wound trying to pop open.

Jeff,

Give her my sympathies from someone who has been there, done that, and has the t-shirt. I have a nice scar in the web between the pointer and middle fingers on my left hand from just the same thing. Only I was using a steak knife at the time. I was working for an ambulance company and my co-workers had great fun bandaging it up for me. You would have thought I had cut my hand off after they were done. The only remnant from it is the scar. It should heal up just fine. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Ouch! That sounds like a pretty big slice. I am sorry to hear about that but I am glad that it wasn't any more severe. These knives can do nasty things at the most unexpected time.

I can sympathize: knives love my left index finger:
First <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>, diagonal slice across fingertip, stitches.
Exacto to the 3rd knuckle from tip, requiring tendon stitches (fortunately a specialist in these things was on duty).
Police tip across 2nd knuckle, more tendon stitches, first solo ER trip.


Knife Knut on a shoestring budget.

Jeff,

Sorry about Mrs Jeff’s accident. As am EMT my curiosity was aroused on the nature of the wound but, for propriety's sake thanks for not posting a pic. Glad to hear she’s mending well! Be thankful there appears to be no tendon or nerve damage.

Some of you other <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>lings sound pretty dangerous!!

Pachuks,
How on earth does one make a pyrometer want to share the same dimensional coordinates as a pair of fingers. Was this job or school related. Our pyrometers are of a kinder, gentler and obviously more dull nature. We use dual color pyrometry to control the power delivered to semiconductor wafer surfaces during rapid thermal processing. More chance for burns than the toothy sting of a rogue pyro.

Linda, They give shirts for this!??

Knife Knut,
Dude, with all them stitches, maybe you can save a trip to the ER by carrying medical grade cyanoacetate (super glue) I bonded with my G10 Rookie 3 years ago. The Doc compared his Rookie with mine in the ER and said Spydies were the best blade to be sliced with – beautiful incisions with clean edges and.....they heal well. Instead of stitches, he used the super-glue and the 2 cm cut was healed within 10 days – no scars.

Stay SAFE! Uh….stay sharp!? <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Java,

No scars huh? They should have used that stuff on my shoulder, and elbow, and hands.... Oh well, maybe next time. <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Maybe I need to get some for my horse, he is as big of a klutz as I am.

JEFF - Good to hear that the wound will heal well.

All you other klutzy <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>lings - Whew! I sure am glad to be in such good company. I thought I was the only <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> klutz out there. Most recenty my Ti Salso bit the back of my left thumb - and Java - I did use crazy glue. Seems to have worked too! I got the idea from having recently used Band Aid Liquid Bandage on a scrape.

Java,
I might have the terminology wrong. I'm referring to an electronic thermometer (approximately 5*2*1/2 inches) with a six inch, very sharp probe attached to it. I was the assistant manager of a fast-food place in college, and we used it to make sure the meat was kept at the right temperatures. I had stuck this thing in my shirt pocket for a second to write on a pad, bent over to pick something up, as I reached out with my left hand it fell out of my pocket and impaled the first two fingers. Nobody said anything as I slowly turned my hand around and we looked at the fingers. I detached the electronic part and then did something really stupid, yeah, I tried to pull it out. OUCH, it didn't budge, of course, and we were off to the ER a few minutes later. What happened when we got there is a whole other story.

Linda - Nope, didn't waste any time. Was out in the garden cutting basil to make Pesto. I new it was the wrong knife for the job, but heck, hadn't "CUT" anything with it yet. Ya'll do understand, don't you?
Next time, perhaps I should use my Civilian.
Drat! I don't own a civilan.
