    I was using a swiss pocket knife to lift the frets out of their edges. I was on the 19th, and i was pushing up on the edge, when the blade closed on my thumb! I cut through the nail, into the meat. sooo much blood i almost passed out! you can literally see into the flesh! I'm going to the doctors today to see if it needs stitches.

    Moral of the story: If you want to use a knife to pry frets, make sure it's a lockblade:mad:
