    was it the beard, or the spike?

    Lots of sharp pointy bits to get you on it!

    Hope ya heal up quickly. I am wishing now I picked up a RH as well.
    My KD bit me bad, I over swung while standing and the spike went into the inside part of my right thigh. A few minutes later I missed my shin with the cutting edge a sign that I was fatigued and time to put the edged tools down for a while. Two days later I had a briuse the size of a cantellope.
    On a side note these hawks are the best thing to come out in years. congrats on the RH

    Ouch man, heal soon! I dropped a tank buster on/into my calf, then trying to move fast so as not to bleed all over the carpet, ran my big toe along the razor sharp edge. Good times lol

    On a side note, that thing is trying to kill you, you should definitely sell it to me :thumbup:

    Max clearly the reason you got bit is because you have an extra KD not being used. He is likely jealous and instigating the loved KD to do all sorts of evil things to you. Tell you what, sell it to me and I will make sure he gets the love he deserves. Its a win win!

    That's a nasty wound brother! Hope you got a tetanus shot after that one! I'm sure that was sore for a while!
