    Looks like your friend did a pretty good job on the sewing. But from a guy that has put in thousands of stitches himself, next time you "nick a tendon" you need to go on antibiotics. If you get an infection in the tendon sheath it's major bad Juju. Luckily it did'nt cause you a problem this time, but for future reference. Nice blade though.

    blueyedevil;

    Thanks for the heads up on the antibiotics.

    Have you ever heard of TeaTree Oil? It's from Australia, amazing stuff at healing things.

    Not untill reading this thread, if I run into some I'll pick it up and give it a try since I'm regularly springing leaks myself (last week it was taking a muzzy broadhead off an arrow, without the wrench, I know I'm a genius)

    Ouch,

    You may be able to find it in stores that carry all natural herbs or health products.

    http://www.teatreeoiluses.com/tea-tr...uses-human.htm

    I found this warning of the product as well for the members edification:
    Safety Concerns
    One study shows that tea tree oil may alter hormone levels. There have been three case reports of topical tea tree oil products causing unexplained breast enlargement in boys. People with hormone-sensitive cancers or pregnant or nursing women should avoid tea tree oil. For more information, read Lavender and Tea Tree Oils Linked to Breast Enlargement in Boys.

    Occasionally, people may have allergic reactions to tea tree oil, ranging from mild contact dermatitis to severe blisters and rashes.

    Undiluted tea tree oil may cause skin irritation, redness, blistering, and itching.

    Tea tree oil should not be taken internally, even in small quantities. It can cause impaired immune function, diarrhea, and potentially fatal central nervous system depression (excessive drowsiness, sleepiness, confusion, coma).

    The tea tree oil in commercial toothpastes and mouthwashes is generally considered to be acceptable because it is not swallowed. Avoid homemade tea tree oil mouthwashes.

    Seek medical attention if you experience symptoms of overdose: excessive drowsiness, sleepiness, poor coordination, diarrhea, vomiting.

    Don't use tea tree oil if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

    Keep tea tree oil out of the reach of children and pets.


    I have no allergic reactions to the Pure Oil myself when used. Most products like the chapstick are diluted to a point where this should not be an issue. We have a balm jar of it in the medicine cabinet, I keep one on my bike, in my search and rescue pack and of course the chapstick.

    Brownie, you forgot

    don't use tea-tree oil if you have a sensitive nose...it stinks!

    glad to see that your hand healed okay.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    KenpoTex,

    True enough sir, it's got a very distinct smell to it.

    I've gotten very used to that smell in the last years though

    The hand is just fine, full extension and grip with only the tell tale sign of a line left there, thanks. I got lucky, no question.
