Cut by a dead man

Recommended Posts

10 or so years ago I made a knife for a guy in the local Mountainman group, a great big bowie. Somehow it got out of my hands without being marked. The owner died 5 years ago, and the knife made it's way back to me. I gave it to another club member and he asked me to mark it.
I had it clamped in my pantograph and I reached for something and zip! right through my ring finger. The doc at the urgent care said it was such a clean slice, they could glue it, rather than the 5 or 6 stitches it would have needed. I get cut by a guy who's been dead for 5 years, and I can hear him laughing.
F***ck you, Two Dwarves!

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.
