    No... not really... but I wanted to mention a product that has been very useful for me especially when I get my klutz on.

    On Christmas day I introduced my new Martell sugi's heel into the side of my thumb a good 3/8 of an inch deep- while the sink looked like a shot from the latest CSI episode I was back on task in 3 minutes.
    This stuff works great. Its cheap and easy to pack in your kit. Give it a shot I found it at CVS or available at the website above.

    When I stuck my thumb into the tablesaw blade I used some stuff very much like that and I made it to the ER conscious!

    I use super glue. Have a couple cuts that needed stitches. Couldn't see myself spending 4 hours at the emergency room, so CA to the rescue. Back to work minutes later.

    Yes it is, quick clot is hard to find here, another product is Celox.

    I'm definitely getting some of that for the kitchen, garage, and first aid kit. Thanks for the heads up!

    Super glue is exothermic and while it work, It can burn your skin around the cut.

    I've used white pepper before... It hurt like hell but worked to help me get back on the cook line for a super busy holiday.

    I should probably just get some of this. My Pro Edge knife bag has enough pockets.

    I'm going to get some that stuff. My wife has a suture kit and looks for excuses to use it.

    Exothermic is good-cauterize a the bleeding vessels!

    I use some kind of powder that your put on dog claws when you mess up and cut the claws too short, takes care of the bleeding quick and then you can ca-glue up the flimsy parts of the wound... good as new after that. :)

    Great post. Your kit should probably be reviewed annually. Stuff expires . . . instant hot and cold packs stop working clotting powders clump up self adhesive band-aids become hard to peel, hydrogen peroxide becomes water etc.

    I need to get some of that..I keep getting bit by the heels of a few knives constantly!!

    CA glue guy (don't think I can get Jims stuff here). Hurts, but hurts less than a medical bill and a day off work. Just be sure to disinfect the wound with the most painful product handy first.

    Pain is a great teacher.

    I made the mistake of using very very thin superglue and squeezing the bottle a little too hard, a lot got on the finger/in the cut and started smoking...THAT was painful!! Now I use the thicker stuff or duct tape.

    On smaller cuts I use a styptic powder or a styptic stick, but woundseal is phenomenal on the real gushers!
