    I cut from first knuckle down through nail bed and almost cut off 1/4th of a fingertip last fall. I put vitamin E on it, went to Urgent Care, they just butterflied it and it healed nicely but I have no feeling in that whole area anymore. Nerves just don't connect back up after something like that. I now wear "dummy glove" to cut cause I was one!!!!

    I thumb mine shut automatically between cuts. I am amazed when I see so-called 'celebrity' quilters (on You Tube for eg) waving their cutters around with the blades out - I have never cut myself on mine and am always cutting in every direction, even towards me, but I am very careful. I did however cut myself deeply yesterday with the bread knife! :mrgreen: :lol:

    A yr. ago I slice the side of my left pointer finger. Should have gone to the ER, but I didn't want anybody to ask what I had done. My DH helped me put steri strips on it, and believe it or not it healed great. Did I go and buy the Klutz gloves? No! Because I thought I would know enough to be more careful. Well, just last week I cut my same finger, but it was because I didn't close the cutter.
    Guess who now has KLUTZ GLOVES? LOL

    I haven't cut a finger, although I have "trimmed" a nail or two. Scary! In the May/June issue of Quiltmaker there is a good article on how to hold your ruler so that it not only does not slide but your fingers and/or nails are safer. It is written by Debbie Caffrey, but this info is not on website. And yes it does have pictures.

    Yes, I slashed my finger so bad the bleeding wouldn't stop and ended up at the clinic. I had 5 stitches put in and I can tell you I am VERY careful when using my rotary cutter.
