I cut myself too this year, my first year grafting.
I didn’t have anything on my right hand (knife hand), and my thumb just barely bumped the blade and gave me a nice slice near the tip of my thumb.
I had just seen a tip from Akiva Silver about putting some duct tape on the top portion of your thumb on the knife hand, but I didn’t. I will from now on though! I cut myself pretty early into the process, so I had the rest of the time with a stinging thumb as a reminder to my future self to use it in the future.
I used a cheap pigskin work glove this year, which was kinda soft and also flexible but also pretty tough, on my left hand. It worked good to deflect a few knife slips that probably would have given me some pretty deep gashes if I didn’t have it on. I’ll probably get a cut resistant glove soon just be extra sure I don’t get cut next year.
Hope your cut heals quickly Clark.
