Maybe TB should do the slicing.

Oh dear, those finger tip cuts are the worst, they never stop bleeding. Trust me, I've had my share.

I hope you feel better.

Please let me give you a little bit of brotherly advice: Don't do that again!!!
Like I said before, I threw that brand new mandoline away. So, it won't be happening again. I think I paid around 50 bucks for the mandoline, and about 400 bucks at the ER. It was a pricey learning experience.

These would have saved you $438, and you would still have a mandoline.

Unlike a mandolin, you need to keep your fingers out of a mandoline.

Craig is not allowed to use the big mandoline in our house because he tends to get distracted by the TV, epecially if football is on, and then OWIE. He does use the little handheld Kyocera though and seems to do okay with that one. I've only cut myself once on the big mandoline once when I got a bit distracted because we were talking. Not bad fortunately, but now I pay attention.

I love my mandolines (I have two, a cheapo plastic one, and a more expensive SS one). And I love my kevlar glove.
