I've only closed a knife a million times, but yesterday I was busy doing too many things at once and also using my pocket knife. Well it's damn sharp and I didn't remove the tip of my middle finger before closing the knife, and I almost lost it. It bled like a damn stuck hog. For a long while. Anyway, just a friendly reminder to slow down a notch or two.

Before the tip had been glued back on


The knife kept some DNA

Ouch! My index finger won't straighten out all the way on the last knuckle due to me closing a SAK on it when I was around 10 YO or so. Bled like a stuck pig, guessing it cut some tendon or something. I can push it straight and it didn't affect the feeling so it's no biggie. But it does stand as a warning. Although I still manage to cut myself now and again Smile

Who hasn't had this happen to them? Mess with a knife and you will get bit, just a matter of time. I am really surprised I still have all my fingertips.

Haven't been cut (badly) by a carry knife but by a utility knife. I was cutting back Yucca cactus fronds which are razor sharp. Got nicked by a frond and then cut by the knife when I pulled my hand back. Cut right down to the knuckle and should have gotten stitches. I wrapped it in tape for a week until it healed.

Insult to injury there.

Yep, it happens. I've been using sharp tools of a variety of sorts for about fifty years, and occasionally I'll have a mishap. Only takes a moment of inattention. Always a surprise, and always ticks me off.

Been there. The nice thing about having really sharp knives is that there are virtually no visible scars afterwards.

The worst one I had in the last few years was when I put my BM 940 in the wrong pocket for the way I had the clip/blade set up. Ran down a flight of stairs not realizing that it partially opened in my pocket until I reached in to grab my keys but the blade grabbed me first.

In this world there are two kinds of people. Those who have been cut by their own knife and those who will be cut with their own knife.

Yes, I have been cut by my own knife too.

Thank you for sharing your experience, even though it looks a little painful.

I had a duct problem in a tent in Iraq, and solved it with duct tape. I stepped off the ladder as I closed a new Emerson Commander (liner lock) and the first sign I'd made a mistake was the wet feeling in my palm. I glanced down to find the end of my thumb hanging off at an odd angle.

Stupidity hurts.

This is the offender.



Old pic but I was too lazy to take another.
