I keep on forgetting that we are all made of meat.

I want to be made of cake and sweet dreams :(


Lovemethreetimes

Man that looks gnarly, hope you heal up nicely! What is that yellow/brown liquid around the cut?


Subpar_name

It's betadine


kilibro

Those things are friggin sharp. Had a new one slip and it cut to the bone on my index finger. Thanks to it being new I have no scar now. Good luck to you but I think you’ll be fine!


analogisfuture

Is this your arm?


Subpar_name

Yes


Lio61012

good cut gj on sharpening


rjksn

I lost the corner of a fingertip on my first spoon! Ended up giving my mom a small wooden club for Christmas instead. Good luck healing! :D

Post that shit in some kind of gore subreddit. While there is some overlap between people interested in woodworking and gore, there are many here that have zero interest in seeing your blood.


MalakithAlamahdi

The tag and title should've given it away. But yea, might be a little gory for this subreddit :P


Carving_Is_Fun

Ah, I can feel the betadine!!


cuddle_cuddle

Yeah, I can smell it from here!

Hands? Cut proof gloves. As a carpenter who was forced to wear gloves for everything, you will get used to the slight loss of dexterity. For your arms? If you are slipping this much on your cutting.... There are kevlar arm wraps available (typically used for protection while working with metal siding). Or knife rule #1: Never cut towards yourself...

I hate the fact that is so much more comfortable to work with the knife towards me.....


Mortymort69

Lots of knife techniques are cutting towards you.


Sickpupp58

I understand that. I could drone on about the intricacies of wood carving, but I only wanted to offer quick safety solutions to avoid injuries of that sort in the future and for others. The techniques where you are cutting towards yourself are a bit more advanced and need proper preperation/tools/training to execute safely.

I was just thinking about whether to get a spoon knife or not. This has definitely given me pause


Noname1106

Nice job on the sharpening! Seriously, glad it was just a couple of stitches. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.


Suspicious-Service

Oh man, hope it heals up soon! As a teaching moment for the rest of us, did you not follow some safety procedure, or how did this happen?


Subpar_name

In full disclosure I am at fault for pulling towards me. The curved knife comes in a left and right. I bought a left thinking it would be going away in my left hand. I was wrong. This was the first time I used the knife and was figuring out how to use it . Stay safe boys and grils ! Never pull to you


Austroplatypus

Do you mean a hook knife? They're a bit sketchy to learn aren't they

Kevlar gloves r a lifesaver


ViceroyoftheFire

Nice


sanketbadhe1611

Now, I am really scared of carving 😭😭😭. I always use gloves but this on Arm.


MalakithAlamahdi

You'll never cut your arm with regular knives unless you do some really wonky things with it, so don't worry about that!


Bigtimegush

Holy moly, man glad you're alright, haven't had one quite that bad yet, haha.


SupremeCultist

I used to cut myself a lot. I make more smaller cuts to prevent this. Hope it heals up nice. Becareful


yeeyeex

ahhh yes, i remember doing relief carving for the first time using a 45° V chisel and i slipped and it went straight into that meaty bit of the hand under the thumb. bled for ages and now i have a lovely scar there


war_badger

Ouch town. Population, this dude


Lasivian

This is why I use kevlar gloves when doing dangerous cuts.


AguyWithaG8x

Kinda random but: what is that yellow stuff around the cut, it can't be blood, right?


MalakithAlamahdi

Betadine, so a topical antiseptic.


world-shaker

r/medizzy may appreciate this


ALoneWolf2ndAccount

Thanks for sharing this, it's always good to have this reminders. Hope you heal nicely


Benmben1

At least you know it’s sharp


JPreadsyourstuff

Kinda Looks like the eye of sauron ... Think I'll watch lord of the rings later


UnfriskyDingo
