Crazy Sharp!

This morning I was setting up some paper to cut on our guillotine. I was positioning the stack of paper under the clamp when I noticed that the edge of the clamp didn’t feel “right” against my knuckle. That’s when I realized that the blade had parked a bit low after the last use, and my knuckle was resting against the knife rather than the clamp!

There seemed to be no injury so my thought at the time was that the knife must be really dull. It was only a few minutes later when I noticed my hand was bleeding a bit that I realized that the knife wasn’t dull, it was in fact so sharp that it had cut me without my even feeling it!
