Work is gonna be extra slow now

Just wanted to warn you to be careful around mandoline slicers :stuck_out_tongue:

I guess work is going to be extra slow for the next week or two :stuck_out_tongue:

Have no fear, it’ll heal up… I sliced the end of my finger clean off, bone, fingernail and all with a meat slicer 40 years ago, you can still see the scar running top to bottom on my index finger, it grew back nicely.

Ouch!!! Feel your pain!
I done the self same thing a few years back and took a slice out my thumb!
Used the guard ever since, lol

You’ll be good. I’ve done that with a router, saw and I don’t know how many times with a knife in the last 40 years (just last week with an xacto). Makes playing my bass tough. We put up a dry erase board to count the number of times we wack those wounds accidentally on something. At the end of the year the winner get’s a t-shirt.

Ouch! Just thinking about it makes me wince. I haven’t done that yet when using my mandolin slicer, knock on wood, but I usually cut my finger while cleaning it.

The Meat slicer reference made my malebits draw up into my abdomen. I have made many a commercial sandwich and early I got the best advice from a Chef/Owner while witnessing me trying to save the company money …he said, “Don’t go for those last couple slices, as they may be your own”

Rest up @daath! …wincing waaay down low

It was so sharp, it didn’t really feel like anything. The second it happened, though, I thought, “Fuck, I’m stupid” :stuck_out_tongue: Oh well, shit happens. It’s just gonna be really inconvenient to work :stuck_out_tongue:

Welcome to the club! I’ve gotten myself 3 or 4 times with our mandolin slicer-It sucks! One thing I have noticed is that cuts from very sharp implements tend to heal much quicker than from dull blades. Silver linings are where you find them, I guess…

Here’s to a quick recovery!

many companies make a product called a food processor. pretty neat gadget for slicing things. its also fairly safe in that one would have to be somewhat ingenious to ever get fingers into the cutting area

Since the finger has been cut, he can always stick it in cider. Should feel better in no time.

I cook, and Mandolins are worse than cheese greaters.

@daath Just wanted to check back and see if you wanted to post a picture with the bandaid off so we can see your finger all healed up? And maybe a picture of the mandoline slicer so we can check to be sure you weren’t too hard on it? It’s been over a month now, hows it going friend?
