Default Cut my finger.

I was cutting some double sided tape with a box knife. Some call it a razor knife. I know it slipped and cut my finger but it happened so fast I really don't know why or what I was doing wrong. It wasn't my road rage finger it was my ring finger. It was on my right hand and I am left handed.

All I can say is be careful.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Sorry to hear about the cut. Hope it's not a bad one. Some times it seem like we just can't be careful enough.

Hope it's a small one and heals up quickly.

I agree with @Stick486 . Make sure it's clean, then tape it carefully back together. Leave the tape on for about a week and then carefully remove it. I think there's an antiseptic in Duck tape, because my sharp instrument injuries heal faster this way than any other. I've been doing this for years, ever since a sheet metal mechanic told me. At the time he had the tape in four places on his hands, all sheet metal cut injuries.

If it swells and/or becomes much more sore after a few days you need a doctor and antibiotics. If not, leave it alone under the tape and it will be good in about a week.

I should have said in the first post it took three stitches.

Isn't that what gloves are for? ...edges, sharp...edges, bad...gloves good!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Best to be cut by a dull blade, the jagged edge heals quicker. Or so the adage goes.

In any case careful is the watch word.

Hope the recovery goes well Don.
