    Here is mine from a few weeks ago.
    Honing whilst on a strong painkiller. In a flash i had cut the thumb that was holding the razor whilst honing. I think it was an act of God because i cannot see how that is possible.
    It is completely healed now but still sensitive at times.

    This is like confesion . Its a weight off

    What bothers me about getting cut is that beyond the discomfort of the cut itself is knowing that I'll have to take a few days off of the shaving routine to allow for healing.

    Yesterday, I would have said that I canít remember the last time I cut myself. (Either Iím very accomplished or the family dementia thing is settling inÖ)

    But today I took it on the chin from my Friodur. It bled like I was Russian royalty since I took an ear-ringing amount of ibuprofen last night. Couldnít find the styptic pencil cuz- I donít cut myself! Applied direct pressure and considered doing a quick ligature with dental floss.

    Iím in the hospital now but only because I work here. Sigh.

    No blood was drawn and I have no photo documentation. I have only a short anecdote to relate.

    Yesterday as I was shaving, I had both my hands up near my face. My left was being used as stretcher and my right was wielding the razor.

    I lowered my hands to about chest level so that I could assess the the shave in progress and the razor in my right hand crossed the fingertips of my left hand, making contact. I felt the blade cross the tip of my middle finger. There was no pain, so I was not particularly alarmed when I glanced down to see what was what.

    The blade had smoothly trimmed the nail on my middle finger in a half-moon slice right down short of the quick. No drag, no cut half-way and stop... Just ZIP... straight through with no effort whatsoever.

    I looked down and saw the section of the nail gone, and then looked into the basin and there it was.

    I imagine I stood for a minute or so looking back and forth between the separated portions of my nail thinking that I was lucky not to be bleeding profusely from a severed fingertip.

    Anyway, finished the shave and pared the nail to something like normal.

    Lesson learned.

    Wow. this thread is almost 100 pages long lol! I rarely get cut by anything other than spike points, especially short ones-look out for that point! (which is why I mute them, personally)
