Darwin strikes again. Used this to trim off a few dry land Tahitian taro leaves, then went to close it. The blade shape and handle shape threw me off a bit, and I tried closing it backwards. After pushing hard for a couple seconds I realized it would not close, and the blade was buried to the bone on my second knuckle pointer finger. After lots of blood and a few choice words I sealed up the cut and cleaned the blood off the blade. Its shhhaaaaarrrrppppp!
