I had a pretty bad accident while on my boat fishing summer -14. I was bleeding a cod, the standard two cuts over the top of the gills, when she started twisting. I grabbed her between my knees and locked her where she was, with her back towards me. I did the cut - slicing towards me and out, slipped and jammed the knife tip into the middle joint on the middle finger. went through the joint, luckily without severing the tendons, just nicked them and damaged the joint. The local doc wanted to send me to the nearest proper hospital in Bodo, but I just had a shot for Tetanus and one Antibiotics. My friend the Ambulance driver fixed me up properly while we had a coffee in the local coffee house. That is the first cut in decades I did towards my body, and it went wrong. The finger is still a little bit stiffer and has some calcifications in the joint. It was an excellent learning moment for my son.
