ok, when's your last cut?

Postby vampyrewolf » Thu Feb 13, 2003 1:00 am

make me feel a bit better... I'm having a cranial flatulance /knife jeliousy moment.



I just got my SS Fly back from eric yesterday... been using it since then... well, I seemed to have forgotten JUST how sharp it is. It found my thumb and taught me a lesson.



I was sharpening the pencil here in the office, and capped my thumb over the end(it's small, Ihave larger hands... it works). Well, my slightly tanto'ed tip found me. I just stabbed about 1/16" into the pad on my right thumb. Almost forgot what a stab felt like(and it was this one last time too).. should start paying attention with this sucker.



so, make me feel a bit smarter. this is on top of sunday night's cut with the endura. don't know how it happened, but I have a cut on my right hand, at the base of my middle finger(palm side), and I had been using the endura before I realized the pain... must have been it.

VW,
My last cut was probably 3-4 weeks ago. All I was doing was letting gravity close my native and the tip caught a part of my palm that was in the way of the handle.
I didn't expect it to swing fully around. Boy was I wrong. I've since learned that if I hold the knife with a normal grip that the knife closes on my finger (the choil in the blade?) and then I move my hand and close it the rest of the way. This instruction was in an older dealers catalog.

Not a Spydie but I dropped my Microtech LCC on my pinkie finger and sliced(deeply) into the tip. Compress and butterfly bandages helped inthe healing. It is still tender and that happenend a couple months ago.
VW don't feel so bad, we all play with sharp things sooner or later...

CKE> it's not playing with them that gets me... it's when the knife decides it time to cut and stab me.

I've probably given up more blood to my hobbies than most people donate. And the vampires at Red Cross keep calling looking for blood.

That's why I'm a Knifanatic. They are sharp yes, I like that very much. My last cut must have been 15 years ago, when I was a ten year old kid. I used to play with SAKs and as these little things don't lock, when I stabbed a log, it closed and cut my index finger right through to the bone. But since then I learned a lot about knives. I treat 'em right, and they treat me right. I've never ever since then cut myself.

The last with Spyderco
It was before the New Year. I tried to cut a free-hanging papeg band (shop cheque). I tried to do it with an up-directed slash and as a result lost a nice piese of my left thumbs fingerprint, andgot a deep cut in the end of index finger.
So now I'm really sure, that my Endura is really sharp!!

I don't cut myself often, and I use slipjoints a lot. You'd think with the thumb-pull carving method I use, I'd have hamburger for a thumb, but I don't.

However, I have had some real doozies over the years. Let's see...
-Work. Cutting silicone caulking off a door by holding knife handle and pulling down. Knife happily digs into left palm.
-School. Removing plastic off of CD from biology book. CD pops loose, deflecting blade into left thumb.
-Kit knife. Lock seemed plenty solid. Tried light spine whack. Failed miserably. You can fill in the rest. <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Never underestimate the impossible.

A SpydeRench bit me a few months ago. I was reaching into our display case to show a customer a serrated model. The blade wasn't all the way locked open and when I grabbed it by the handle...it closed on my hand. That was worth a trip to the emergency room and 5 stitches. Customer loved it!

Well! My latest cut was, um, THIS morning. <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> (Thread: Wrath Of Harpy) Let's just say that the shot is beginning to wear off, and my finger feels like a drum. (This baby throbs!) <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Yikes...Where's the Advil?

Peace to all,

Michael

Like samo no knife cut but I cut my left thumb with a piece of sheet metal off of a roof of a goat barn! Sharper than any knife!

Lokelani-

Did the customer buy that spyderench????
I always thought that spyderco should put spydie bandaids in every box-it would at least be funny!!!

The heck with the cards. Watch out for them SE gum wrappers!! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Y'all are dangerous!

I'm worse but must have hands of aluminum. Demo'd the Gunting Drone to some friends in Austin last week, then had to break out the Qs and others I brought along. Standing there flipping my Dacor dive knife thinking, "Hmm seems heavy for a drone", when I caught it tip down in the palm of my hand. Minimal blood, minimal penetration. Still learning.....

Ken, Keep your eyes peeled and every now and again you can find a jan-u-wine Spydie Cut Kit on E-Bay. Lokelani can bring you up to speed on their history since she's probably removed from the show-the-customer-some-knives detail for a while. Shaka, brah!

Stay safe! Stay sharp!

My last cut was with a new Centofante. I had just bought it and was getting used to the safelock one handedly and nicked my right index finger. That was one sharp little bastard!!!!
