A cautionary tale...
The steri-strips came off today but you can still see the angle at which the steel rule was being held to guide the Stanley knife through the cardboard of the book-pack, trimming it to size. Only a blade past the prime of sharpness prevented complete removal of the top right corner of the index finger. On the other hand (so to speak) a sharper blade might have cut straight through the slight fault in the cardboard that made it jump.
Either way, it has been a 'sharp' reminder to keep your mind on what you are doing!
