Damnt, went to grab a lid and rammed my knuckle right into a can . This issecond time I reached for super glue after discovering how friggin awesome it works on a clean cut. last one was a new razor. I would not try using it on something with a chance of debris but Last time a 3/4 inch deep by inch long split thumb was healed in 10 days .
BETTER THAN THE ER for stitches when no tendon is involved
I'll spare you graphics but had to shout out for the space program and science. combined with a FABRIC Knucke bandage I should have minimal limitations, always been lucky the left that takes the hit.

Super glue works amazingly. Since it's not sterile like medical grade try to make sure it's a new tube. Clean the wound thoroughly, dry completely, and approximate the edges as close as possible.

Ouch...as a mom would say, "be careful, it could just as well been a rattlesnake..."

btw...soldering irons work too
what kind of Resin, is that lead/tin or silver :unsure:


Yeah I know it looks pretty minor now but when it was gushing blood like a faucet it seemed pretty deep. and being on a knucle slow to heal easy to foul. and you know squirting superglue into gushing blood is a hurdle. Its far better than my previous method, that was electrical tape. Day 3 fully functional and no sting with alcohol.
