:D ...LOL...I know it's never really funny when it happens, but I mentioned that I gave my sons-in-law each one of the tinned 110's this year for Christmas...well the results are in. Two stitches in number 1 son-in-law and 4 in number 2 son-in-law...Each received the "initiation" marks upon closing the knives and not realizing that they "walked and talked" as well as they do...LMAO...Thru the years I can't say that I haven't received mine as well it's just kinda neat that they both got theirs from MY well-intentioned gifts...Ahhh...Buck knows how to make 'em don't they??...:D :D :eek:

I'd like a nickel for everytime the blade on one of my 110's closed on one of my fingers while I'm trying to clean it or lubricate the hinge. At this point my wife just rolls her eyes. :rolleyes: At least I've gotten to the point that I sustain nothing more than a brief drawing of blood before the very small cut closes up. I've learned not to flinch and make things worse that may require stitches (see son-in-law comment in quote above) :D :D

I must be 'thick-skinned' or just plain lucky! Haven't been 'nipped' by a Buck 110, yet! :D

When I do get nicked at all it's always when I'm cleaning or polishing the bolsters near the pivot. I use a soft cotton cloth and every now and then I get a bit too enthusiastic and I'll slip over the bolster and slide my thumb nicely over the blade. The kids are left and right handed and both got nicked when they closed the blade and they got it across their middle fingers on their right and left hand respectively. Making it worse was when they pulled their fingers out from under the blade under tension. Bet they gonna be lotsa more careful in the future...LOL...:eek: :cool:

I am going to Walmart for my son-in laws next years Christmas present. If I am lucky and he's not, I may have a good story to share with you guys too!
