    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.

    Back when I was cooking, I was cleaning the griddle with oil and a charcoal brick after working a double shift. Wasn't paying too much attention, and when someone started talking to me, I didn't stop when I turned to talk to them. Hit the backslash, and had both my hands covered in oil. Immediate blisters, but after the initial 5 seconds of burning, my hands went numb. Too bad they didn't stay that way for the next week and a half. It hurt to do just about anything, and I think my coworkers laughed when I had to reach into the steam bath to grab anything.

    I was sharpening my knife when a server reached into my cooler, were they apparently had their &%^$ing lunch and hit my elbow with the door, which in turn cut off my right hand pinky at the first joint. I turned around and started screaming at him for being on the line,while at the same time waving my hand at him and covering him with blood. He ran screaming from the restaurant and we never saw him again. Apparently it was Ramadan and he was breaking his fast, when I the catholic covered him in unclean infidel blood. I didn't know. I was just pissed he was on my line and cut my finger off. He was there for 8 years. went to the emergency room after I got the rush done. about an hour later. Had a beautiful Spanish doctor sewed my finger back on and life was good.
    Seven years later I was working on Thanksgiving day and cut off the first joint of my middle finger using a dull, filthy serrated house knife while cutting a bagel of all things. I went to a different emergency room across town and the same beautiful Spanish doctor was there and this time she also used some sort of glue to hold the flesh on. and life was good. She did tell me to get out of this business or it was going to kill me. little did she know a couple of years later it actually did.

    Took off the end of my left thumb, just missed bone, but took it off about halfway up the nail. I found the piece stuck on the side of the knife, taped it back on and continued what I was doing, then went to the doctor two days later and found out the piece was not aligned properly. Ended up having surgery to re-amputate and re-attach the piece, works pretty well now, though.

    No notable burns yet, but there is still plenty of time for that.

    Small cuts and burns here and there. Got injured worse when I worked on cars and did heavy metal fabrication.

    Same here, except it was motorcycles & fiberglass fabrication.

    Worst dumbass kitchen move was grabbing the handle of a saute straight out of a 500F oven.

    That's something you only do once!

    The other day I knocked my Hattori off the chopping board and I did a big no-no and tried to grab it but miraculously I just held onto the end of the handle. Think I was pretty lucky
