I've often told people to be careful when drawing a knife from a sheath..It's always when you get complacent that you do something silly
and of course I did just such a thing in the woods the other day, and to make matters worse I'd forgotten my First aid kit!! Luckily Davy had his.
The wound was deep and I saw the tendons in my finger though luckily I didn't cut them or Id have needed surgery..A quick response with the FAK enabled a clean and quick healing cut..
But I should have taken my own advice... never wrap your hand around the sheath when drawing your knife, always pinch it, away from the welt and draw slowly!!
