i fixed the slight heel mis-grind on my Kochi the other night and received a phone call while i was polishing with a fingerstone. i lost a good portion of the pad of my index finger. i'm glad super glue exists, otherwise i'd be hurting. that's probably my worst knife related cut in general. in the kitchen, the worst thing i did was cut a big chunk of my thumb off while cutting some onions. that also happened when my phone rang and i was startled. perhaps i should start putting my phone on silent. no bad burns in the kitchen, though i've gotten plenty of blisters. i once grabbed a soldering iron that i thought was unplugged by the barrel (what a stupid, stupid thing: you definitely treat every soldering iron like they are hot, after that), and i've never had any burn from preparing food that compared to that.
