Bought myself a new pocket knife from Knives and Tools a while back, but as soon as I got it I thought, it’s too big, so I contacted the company and the man said, sure, just return it*, so I repacked it, ready to return, and left it on the windowsill.

Two months later I thought, hmm, I might keep it, so I unpacked it, but it still felt too big. Undeterred, I opened it but didn’t lock out the blade. Result: the weight of the blade made it drop closed on my right index finger.

Blood all over.

I’ve got scars, but this is the second one I’ll have care-of one of my own blades.┬áCut me twice, shame on me, etc.


*Might buy a multi-tool instead.
