Yeah, fine thanks :) Would've still been ok if I'd taken it clean off - theres a freezer nearby with some peas in :lol:

Went through about 3/4 of it a little back from the tip. Will heal as well as any trivial cut. Just bled a lot, didnt stop for ages, and the above thought amused me.

Oh, a couple of mm, 40 years and 2 more fingers!

Do you have a hot daughter?

EDIT: Yikes, that's deep, at least it's not far along your digit though.

Does it sting? :lol:

No, and had I a daughter, being 27, anyone that decsribed her as hot would be in serious trouble!

Doesnt hurt one iota. The last thing I did before that with that particular knife was sharpen it :lol: :roll: :evil: (stung a tiny bit going in, but thats it).

we need pictures!!!  sounds nasty Mark, hope it gets better soon.

its always when you've using the sharpest knife too - I slashed my thumb open a couple of years back with a stanley knife 5 minutes after opening up a fresh blade.

I had a similar experience (but nowhere near as bad) the other week.
Was trying to cut a cable tie with a new knife, cable tie in annoying place so I had to hold it :lol:
Cut it across the inside fold of the joint. Index finger, left hand. Looks like it would be near the bone I guess, and bled like a bleeding finger... for a long time.

Good luck playing guitar, MDV ;)

Thanks for the well wishing, but really all told its just a cut. I just thought the similarity was ammusing. I was very embarrased to have to go to a&e to waste doctors and nurses time going "i cut me finger, I cant make it stop bleeding to dress it or anything" :oops:

I blame human bilateral symmerty. If I had at least one other hand...well, sort this on my own was the least I could do :lol: Or that I wasnt paying any attention to where my fingers were when using a very (very very very) sharp knife, one of the two :lol:

Many girls say it looks like I've got an extra leg...  :? :P

i had a slip while washing a knife recently, it managed to embed itself in the bone of my first finger!  that bled profusely, and the finger's still numb from the cut to the end of the finger.  hoping it'll sort itself out.  i should have gone for a couple of stitches, but being all macho ( and a tv show i wanted to see being about to start ) i didn't bother :)

I'm glad you went and got it sorted out, anyway!   :D

From the first couple of posts it sounded like you were being a bit too relaxed/macho over what sounds like quite a serious injury!

Last year I had a small incident with a hand saw while trimming a tree.

It was a pretty deep cut. Fortunately I reacted quick enough.

I wouldn't have Iommi-ed my left index finger, I would have Django-ed it.  :o
