    My 'new' knife sure is sharp!

    Monday I was trying out the Scorp knife I bought last winter... for cleaning out the bowl of a spoon. the scorp thread...
    well It slipped and drew first blood.

    that's after a few days with a band-aid and neosporin on it.

    Good job. I'm nursing a fillet-o-thumb following a slide down the edge of a piece of walnut. I shoulda never lost those callouses leftover from my previous life, splitting tractors.

    I,m still splitting tractors and any day with no skin lost is a good day. Looks to healing fast, but it is never fast enough because you keep bumping it.

    My surgical skin removal of the week was on the edge of my right thumb in the kitchen with a mandoline. Right where I hit the space key on the keyboard. Danged thin-sliced potatoes.

    When I was splitting tractors, I always just used my teeth. No callouses necessary.

    I think Ned need to spend more time with his tools. First his ts throw wood at him, then the knife bites him. I really hink he better start treating them better and they wont be so angry with him.. Hope the finger gets better.

    Ned, sorry about the blood letting. Happens in shop.
    Yer 'scorp' isn't what I would call a scorp, but....wats in a name? Looks more like a crooked knife to me. And, yes, that close work like that can get bloody. Consider buying a Kevlar glove lotsa woodcarvers use them.
