    i had a roller cutter on a flooring sample "chopping board" cutting slingshot pouches...
    when all i did was roll it off the end and it just touched my leg...

    i first noticed a cut in my jeans about 30 secs later but no blood...
    while inspecting the hole i noticed it had actually cut clean through about 4mm skin exposing the white layer underneath...

    i thought about stitching it up, but in the end i just glued it shut...

    this was maybe a month back and its healing nicely... a few weeks before that i cut into my thumb with my opinel... luckily the bone stopped the blade... that bled a hell of alot... but magic superglue to the rescue again...

    You were lucky I remember when working as a butcher my hands were cold and I lost concentration and chopped through thumb with the steak knife that I was sharpening on the steel, it was all because the ex girlfriend walked in, 12 stitches and thumb set in a splint for a few weeks.

    My brother was the same, using the meat slicer and got distracted and ended up with his thumb running along the blade. They managed to stitch it back but he still has no feeling on one side of his thumb some 25 years later.

    hello,
    I was chopping up a railway sleeper when I was younger (around 15 years old) for kindling. Saw cut into blocks, followed by use of the axe short lengths for kindling. The axe caught my left index finger just above the knuckle, near took off the finger. I still have the V notch around the finger as a reminder As I was reminded, if you can do such to yourself, what would you do unto others? I still have that axe.
    Regards
    David
