I shoved a chisel through my hand last year. Went right in my palm right between the thumb and index finger and came out the back side. Bled like crazy but I stitched it up myself and saved an emergency room visit. The chisel hurt, but the stitches hurt even more, and let me tell you, it’s HARD to push a sewing needle through flesh, they are not that sharp. I’ve since bought some proper suture needles for the first aid kit. (No joke)
