    The Mandolin Club, new member

    Well 20 years in the kitchen and i have avoided destroying my finger on one of these contraptions of death, but now I'm a member

    Sorry for the blurry and not bloody pics but i did not have time to take any good pictures, this is a 4 day old cut.
    So here we go, all other members of the club may now post there initiation photos

    been there I had a julienne scar all down the palm of my hand for about a year. Once in a great while if the sun is just right I can still see a few fine lines.

    I bought one 10 years ago and it didn't take me long to figure out mandolins aren't finger friendly.

    Give me a sharp knife cut over that anyday - That's nasty.

    Welcome to the club. Four years later and I still have a noticeable flat spot on my thumb.

    I remain leery of those things.

    If you reach the age of 60 without becoming a curmudgeon, you haven't been paying attention.

    Of course, at the time I was having a cocktail and trying to impress a lady with my culinary genius and witty banter.

    Mandolins and distractions are a bad mix.

    I still have dead spots on the tips of a couple fingers from those damn things. That's like a junior membership initiation fee right there. Only when you lose a couple of fingernails or acquire permanent nerve damage can you step up to the senior membership.

    I'm at least a 4 time member. lol

    Proud to say I've never cut myself with one. I've only cut myself while cutting food twice, once trying katsuramuki with a friend's knife, and once a few weeks ago butterflying chicken breasts.

    I use the hand guard.

    My wife cut herself with a mandolin so badly she had to use liquid band aid to stop it. She is banned from the thing. Your cut also looks rough.
