    Stuck a chisel into my leg when I was an apprentice. Still have a lovely scar on my thigh.

    Isn't it nice when someone says "that's a great piece of kit, where did you buy that", then you can modestly reply "you can't buy it, I made it myself". The moral is, it's amazing what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.

    And when dealing with severe bleeding the acronym SEEP can help you remember what to do

    Sit or lay the casualty down

    Expose and examine the wound

    Elevate the injured part if possible

    Pressure apply directly to the wound unless it has a foreign object embedded in it

    Any one can make a mistake, it's a fool who doesn't learn from them

    I was chopping wood with my SFA,
    the axe head got stuck in the wood, I grabbed said piece of wood with my bare hands.
    A little bit of the edge was exposed and I sliced the end of my finger.
    I now wear leather gloves.
    I was mid way through a weeks canoe camping, fortunately it wasn't a bad cut and a little first aid I was right as rain.

    I have a healthy respect for a VERY sharp tool that we swing with great force and questionable accuracy, I endeavor make sure that bits of me or others are out of range of the swing arc and a possible deflection of the axe blade.
