While using the mandoline to cut an apple I somehow sliced the tip of my finger almost all the way off. I now have 5 stitches in my finger and nerve damage. I am terrified of even looking at the mandoline and not sure how to get over my fear of using it. I love the mandoline and think it's a great product but I'm afraid I will have a hard time selling it due to being scared of it. Has anyone had this problem before or a similar one and if so how did you get over it?? It's not like I can tell this story to my customers I think it would freak them out. Anything would help! Thank you!
