May I suggest something a tad more robust?:

Ouch! Praying for you! I once too had an injure requiring stitches on the knuckle of my middle finger on my left hand. I was fixing dinner and had opened a can of pineapple from a metal can and set it aside with the metal lid on the counter. I then grabbed a knife out of the kitchen drawer and went to open the package of meet and of course the knife was dull. I put to much force on the knife and my hand shot forwards hitting the metal pinapple can lid slicing my finger wide open. A few stitches later no body seemed to really believe that it happened that way. Oh well chicks dig scars right? Must have worked along with my other ones! Been married almost a year now!

I've heard of "Glock foot", but I've never heard of "multi-tool foot" ......until now...... :lol:

Sounds nice and painful. :shock:

It's getting better, but I agree I don't know if "Leatherman foot" will ever catch on.

So glad I'm not the only one. Ugh. I once pulled my keys out of my pocket, and had the keyring grab the thumb peg of my pocket knife on its way out of the pocket. It opened my knife straight up. It was only like a 2 1/2" blade, but it was sharp as a razor. I'm lucky I didn't sit down and have it stab me in the gut. But anyway, a few minutes later, I had forgotten I'd already pulled my keys, so I reached into my pocket to grab them. And slid my thumb right down that blade. I can show you the scar sometime.

A few months ago, I was at my old house trying to get some stuff as we had just moved. One of the items I needed was my wire-frame shelf. I had attached a piece of hardboard to one side of it to act as a back for one of the shelves. I had drilled small holes in it and ran black zip ties through the holes, around the wires of the shelf system. Well, I was trying to cut through one of the ties with my pocket knife and for some reason had my left hand up near it. Well, it cut through, and I effectively stabbed my left hand in the web before my thumb. Like a half-inch deep. I can still feel the nerves healing. That one sucked especially bad.

Sorry to hijack your thread, but I know both of our accidents could have been avoided. I was being completely careless in my second one. And I saw it coming. I thought, "Maybe I shouldn't put my hand there because I might..." bam. Idiot.

Anyway, glad you're getting better.

Dang it man! Even though you were humorous in your telling of that story, I'm still cringing thinking about it.

Reminds me of something that happened with my Leatherman Super Tool many years ago. I had picked up a new washer and dryer. They were in the bed of my pickup still in big cardboard boxes. My neighbor came over when he saw me drive up (we lived in town then) and offered to help me unload them. After we had them on the floor in the garage I pulled out my Leatherman and was cutting the box open on one of them. About that time my wife called me in the house to the phone and I laid my Letaherman on the box and went inside. When I came back out there was blood all over the floor and my neighbor was standing there holding on to his thumb. He dang near cut his thumb off!

The first thing he said to me was, "I didn't expect a multi tool to have a sharp knife!"

My response was, "I don't have any use for a dull knife."

I've still got that tool. It's over 30 years old now. And I still keep the knife sharp enough to shave.
Do what you say you're gonna do.

Don't think of the incident as a loss of a sock, but rather the gain of a new gun cleaning rag.
