... my wife come running after she heard me screaming NO, NO, over and over again, to the top of my lungs. Why were you yelling she asked me? Cause I was bleeding like a fish and was trying to not get blood on the carpet. LMAO.
Go finger, I mean figure... No blood on the blade. It was such a fast, clean slice.

I have a Benchmade (a Mel Pardue design) that has been deemed TOO sharp for edc. It's not an auto but flips open via studs on the side of the blade. It flips nice, I just keep thinking "this will be a good way to slice off the pad of my thumb" when I flip it :-)

Almost did that too. Started slicing an apple the old fashion way and knife kept going right down side of my thumb following nail. I hate knives, or they hate me.

For years I carried my EDC Benchmade Mini-Reflex w/pocket clip, worn at the 4:00 position, knife tip in the "up" position.

One day at work, I went to tuck my shirt in better, not knowing the wicked little devil had deployed exposing the extremely sharp blade inside my jeans. I cut my right thumb to the bone almost without feeling it, the blade was so sharp. I looked like a crime scene...so much for 'safties' on autos.

So now this wounded warrior is much more careful with any auto worn on/in my pants. Any safety must have either a 'click' or tactile feel to it before it gets in MY pants!

Bleeding sucks!

I made certain that I was clear while cutting, but something moved. I should have gotten the cutters. Gerber multitool blade went in 1/2". I bled it, disinfectant, first aid cream, etc. closed it. I cut myself with every new knife that I acquire. Three inches above the left wrist. Luckily, I missed all of the main vessels. Not as bad as yours, though.

Well since this thread is going off track I might as well chime in. Back in 2001 at a company year end meeting dinner, I received from the company an engraved Leatherman multi tool as an award for going one year without any accidents on my 60 man crew. During the company president's speech I was checking out the tool at my table and promptly sliced my finger with it. I kept my cool, didn't make any noise and stopped the bleeding on my own.
Of course I did not report it because I would've hated to have to forfeit my safety award. I'm not even sure where that thing is now. If I do find it I'll post a picture.
True story.
