    Yep, been there. I've had far too many that needed stitches that never got them. Superglue and butterfly stitches/steri-strips are a common commodity at my house lol. Right here at my desk where I do my sharpening, I have a bottle of liquid skin, superglue, and a box of bandaids.

    The liquid skin/bandage is good stuff to have around. Provides a good sting to let you know you haven't completely lost feeling in the area

    The doc definitely did a good job. Healed up nicely.

    This was the worst way to test the capabilities of my SE blade but I had to make the sacrifice for the good of the community

    Thanks for taking one for the team. I'm sure we won't forget it for at least the next three or four times we open a knife

    Yeouch! At least they gave you "Smurf-blue" stitches, though.

    It takes a truely brave man to dedicate his blood for thorough testing. I just touched up my GB and D'fly. PM me your address so I can send them to you for sharpness testing. I am NOT a truely brave man.

    I appreciate this Doug. I bet when I get it back after six months of testing there will be a very nice patina on the blade. Try to keep the blood out of the pivot please.

    OK, but just to be on the safe side, I'll use Joe/Mastiff's (IIRC) technique of running it through the washing machine in a levi's pocket before returning it

    I could definitely be of assistance in this matter... It might be difficult to ship back for awhile without the use of my thumbs

    I asked for camo stitches... no dice

    Worst part was that it wasn't a slice, it was more of a chop.

    I do find myself to be a little more cautious now, so that's good.
