This is the outcome when you stick your finger into a running hedge trimmer. Perfect slice from the tip down to about the first knuckle right through, just missing the bone but through the nail and nail bed. There are more gory photo's but you'll have to wait until I work out a way to get them off my wife's phone. My nail has been removed and my finger stitched back together and bandaged up for a few weeks. What you could call an occupational hazard. What bugs me more is I can't get out to the Welsh Kayak Show in a couple of weeks and as I'm off work I need to look after my money, which means my boat build is on hold to. Joy! Could have been worse I suppose.
