OUCH!! That seriously smarts!! :shock:

Back in my navy days (Hospital Corpsman) I sewed up a grunch of Marines after they did something stupid playing around with their K-Bars....and those do have handguards. I remember one that was throwing his K-Bar at a tree or board or something. Everything went along fine until somehow it bounced off the tree and ended up in the middle of his thigh! :ohdear:

Thanks for reminding folks not to play around with even the simplest of tools, especially if they are pointy or sharp. This is definitely not the kind of injury you would want to risk having in a PAW

ouch! had a few similar injuries like that on hands as well as feet. You don't realize how debilitating it can be until it happens to you. I definitely make a point to think twice about what i am doing now whenever handling something sharp or potentially dangerous.

I've been there before. Never tendon damage, but some good wounds. Advice on throwing knives, be careful not to release it well after you should, I managed to toss a knife right through my toe.

My recent bout with carelessness. Did get to make a field pressure bandage. I was about 2 miles from base camp with no first aid supplies.

FYI. Tomahawk to the shin hurts.

I'm pretty sure tomahawk to any body part hurts...but on the bright side, it hurts less (and heals faster) if the blade is sharp!

Hrmm, has me counting all the scars on my hands. Out of all the crazy crap I've done and gotten away with, being in a beginning whittling class with a dozen people in a 10'x12' class space, all with brand new Moras, was right near the top. I left before a steady stream of students started making for the aid station.

A similar thread involving somewhat larger knives: http://www.sword-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1581
The home shopping channel video in post #3 is just classic.

I had a buddy do that years back with a hatchet. It was nasty to look at.
But he walked and worked on it just fine.
Then on the way out of the timber, while walking on a dirt road, he stepped on a rock about the size of a walnut and turned his ankle.

Hole in his leg - fine.
Small rock on an open road - had to drive the truck down to get him. :roll:

Hope your wound has healed well.

I once forgot to snap the leather loop on my bowie knife. I was carrying it with other items as I was moving to an apartment. The knife slipped out of the sheath bounced in the concrete sidewalk and stabbed me right below the kneecap. Four stitches and weeks of recovery. :?

I was wondering if anybody else has experienced this:
Several times I have cut a finger badly and had it stitched up. They are always sensitive to cold after that and they don't feel right in that the sense of touch is messed up. Years after dealing with a finger or thumb that wasn't 100%, I would accidentally smash it with a hammer or something, badly enough that the nail came off. By the time the nail grew back, the digit was 100% functional. It looks to me like a crushing injury causes some kind of reaction which regenerates the nerve tissue, something that a laceration does not.

Has anybody else had this happen?
