How deep did it go?

That could have been added to this thread...here.

Reminds me of once when I was like 14 or so and sharpening a pocket knife towards myself, while holding the whetstone. Blade slipped and went right into my palm. I saw it, but it didn't hurt at first. So I thought it was just a close call. About 2 seconds later blood was everywhere.

Anyways, I bet you won't try that again anytime soon.

This is why I'm glad there are no 'before' photos.

The cut was as deep as it could go.

The tip of the knife nicked the bone.

in middle school my desk had a lose screw and one of the legs started to fall. so the teacher gave me a pocket knife (yes... a pocket knife. not a swiss army knife or anything like that) to use as a screwdriver to put it back in. needless to say the knife closed on my finger and cut it right to the bone.

my mom is a doctor so i knew that after 7 hours you can't get stitches, so i waited 7 hours before telling anyone. i didn't want stitches!!

Bah...you can barely see the laceration at all....excellent suturing job, kudos to your doc/nurse.

Boy, would that be irritating while you wait to have the stitching removed.

Sunday, my 7 year-old daughter learned a valuable lesson about not running in the house...thanks to a trip and an aquarium lid, she is now sporting three sutures between her eyes.

By the by....she didn't cry or even flinch when being sewn...how about you?

Heheh... Not while being sewn up.. But i cried like a little girl on the way to the hospital.

The Dr. did a VERY Nice job, and did it in less than 10 minutes. He let the 'students' do clean up and wrapping. Tho,. they did not trim the stitches any. I had to do that when I got home.

One lesson here is that you should never have to force a blade to cut something. Either saw it, or get a sharper instrument.

When you have to use force, it will eventually cut or slip, and then that blade (with all that force behind it) has to go somewhere.
