    This is why I said what I said. Here a a complete stranger , that may or may not seen me, that can see all my posts. Being rude and forward because there are no repercussions for internet words.
    Here is the prime example

    Yikes! I recently added QuikClot to my backpack first aid kit, but don't know if that would have helped in your case. Thanks for the wakeup -- my stitches are a constant reminder to me, too.

    Don't be so defensive. It was a good thing to post and may save someone down the road.
    Accidents happen and the better prepared we are the better our chances when they do happen
    Glad you are OK

    So what were you doing or carving and what kind of knife were you using? Looks pretty bad, I've cut my finger, a knuckle and my thumb but nothing close to this.

    My take away from the thread: I'm glad I don't actually use my knives and just play with them. /s

    Also, time to go exploring through someone's post history. Thanks folks.

    Oh, wow. Not to bust on the OP or whoever was injured but there are 101 things on your person to use as a tourniquet. T shirt? Shoe string? Pant leg..... I’m sure it’s hard to think about stuff when you are loosing that much blood.

    My take away from this thread is to be sure to take some kind of first aid stuff with you in the woods. It doesn't have to be much and you can buy some of the off the shelf small kits. I need to review my needs a bit in this department.

    I while back I was taking pictures using a large tripod (working out of my pickup versus hiking). Yes, I was carrying a fixed blade on my belt. I was in a hurry to set it up and in closing one of the leg locks on the tripod, I pinched my finger pretty hard to the point I was bleeding profusely from a gouge wound. I didn't even have a bandaid with me and a nice lady gave me one. When I got back, I immediately placed band aides in my truck where I can find them quickly for myself or someone in need. Maybe need to consider the tourniquet thing.... First aid issues can be important.

    I discovered that I did in fact have a first aid kit in my truck all the time....

    It does little good to "have" first aid materials with you IF you can't even find them in the clutter. The same kind of thing applies to emergency equipment such as a glass breaker or seat belt cutter.... you don't have 15 minutes to dig around looking for stuff. I keep a medium sized first aid kit under the seat of my truck all the time.... but did I even think that I had it when I needed it....? Nope... Open them up and actually look at the materials that are stored in there and replace things that need replacing from time to time.

    Added: I often forget to carry a smaller kit in my day pack if I am tromping around in the woods.... what can happen, right? The thing is, the kit supplies may not be for you. You may need to try to render aid to someone else. This is important and basic humanity stuff.

    Improvised tourniquets are better than what he had- that’s for sure!
    I’m not going to use this shoe string and stick to twist around my severed arm.... it isn’t approved by 9 out of 10 doctors and pharmacists. Plus it’s probably only 92% effective.

    Accidents with knives happen....we all have been there. And while it's important to prepare for them and know first aid, and it's important for everyone to have an "exit plan" in place, there are 2 other very important things.

    1) Proper technique...it exists to reduce the chance of injury
    2) Knives may or may not be weapons, but they are definitely NOT toys.

    You don't know what you are doing or you screw around with knives and your chances of getting hurt, potentially fatally, goes up exponentially.

    Particularly as we enter summer. The number of adults, and especially kids/teen out of school, blissfully and blindly whacking away at trees and doing other nonsense with knives is going to skyrocket.

    We all know hurting ourselves with our knives is a result of our own mistakes.

    Don't make it worse being stupid...knives aren't toys.

    Stay safe! :thumbsup:
