I was fleshing a couple of Caribou capes this morning with my Havalon folding knife.
I finished one & closed the knife & slid it in my pocket so I could salt the cape.
Got that done so I start to work on the second cape.
I slide my hand in my pocket & felt a bad sharp stick.
Just in that instant I knew what had happened.
There must have been a little Fat or meat under the blade when I folded it closed & when I slid my hand in the blade caught my skin & comensed to dig into my middle finger.
Being a Scalpel blade the damage was done very quikly & when I jerked my hand out I had already made a 3 inch cut to the bone on my finger.
I am glade this happened in my shop & not on a fly in hunt.
I guess we all need a reminder of safety once in a while, I just wish they weren't as painful.
