This was one of my earliest EDC knives while I was in the military. The Buck 501 Squire, I did a bit of embelishing on it to make it stand out and be different than anyone elses. A coworker in Ft Worth Texas (Carswell AFB) asked to borrow it for a moment, I told him it was sharp so be careful, I distinctly remember hearing "Oh damn, it is sharp." I turned around and he was bleeding like a stuck pig from his thumb. We took him to the base ER to get checked and some stitches as it turned out. I took a photo of him with his bandaged thumb, made a safety poster called it "Safety Awareness Recognition" with a brief explanation of the incident and stuck it on the bulletin board. When I filled out the safety incident report that goes to the squadron commander, 1st Sgt, and our Safety Rep, I included a copy of the poster...it was provided to all the different sections in the Squadron, he was famous.
Here's a photo of the Buck knife with a Gerber

Cool story Wicked. Knives and cut thumbs go together like ham and eggs. Bet he just had to try the sharpness before he believed you.
He was holding the electrical plug from a desk fan that wasn't making a good connection and he mumbled that he was thinking about expanding the brass to get a better grip in the recepticle. I didn't think anything of it but I probably wouldn't have held it in my hand to do it.
I have my own scars that reflect my careless stupidity with many tales that would qualify for the archives titled - Wow, that was really dumb.
😁
Got a good story about that vintage Mini Mac for another day. Earned me the name Chainsaw Man by the ER doctor, he said I would have to wait because he had to work on Knife Man first (he did say it's stuck in his leg). That might be a good topic for a Discussion Starter... What's the story behind something thing you did that got you hurt and a scar.
