Sometimes when we do repetitive things we get a little careless. 
I was in the bush and came across a small birch tree across the
road. I grabbed the sapling with my left hand and swung my 
machete with the right. The angle of the blade was to shallow,
It glanced off the tree and sliced my finger at the knuckle.

I was by myself and lost a fair amount of blood. This just goes to 
show how quickly things can happen, next time I will be a 
lot more careful. Oh yeah this was the first time I swung this new
tool, sure is sharp!
