how dangerous are stanley knifes, i reckon more than most power tools
i wanna know some more stories of what injuries they have given or any close calls
me - ive had a few, prob around 4,
once trying to cut open a thick plastic 10L bottle to use as an oil pan, was cuttin with the blade below my pinky and pushing downwards, i shoulda been wriggling it aswell, and then in an instant blade broke off and lodged in the plastic bottle, my hand continuing quickly in that direction and sliced me right on my wrist
, blood came oozing out on the kitchen floor and all on my way to get tissues.
i thought i had fully cut my wrist badly, got "rushed" to hospital by my frantic mum, ended up being a cut only ~8mm long and about 2/3mm deep. they used superglue stuff over it and it was all ok.
i was really luck i didnt cut myself any worse, very close call indeed
at school, stuck a scalpel in my thumb requiring 3 stitches. first thing teacher said was "ahhh look what youve done, ur gonna make that scalpel go all rusty now" hehe, not a bad response
im sure there are many worse than these.
one of my aims with this thread was to also warn others of how much care u really need to take with em,
i now annouce STANLEY KNIFE AWARENESS WEEK, please donate - send all money to me via bank deposit, i also accept paypal or u could just give me ur credit card details and that'd be kool. THANX!
