    I am lucky I have never cut myself with my cutter...but I did cut my thumb a while back when I folded over the package of blades to remove one and it came out the back and sliced my thumb pretty good. Learned my lesson well that time. Knock on wood I don't do it again. Hope you heal fast. :)

    If you do get blood on your fabric you have to use your own saliva to get it out.
