Splinter Extraction

By Rob - Posted on 09 July 2007

Having rocks and stick smash into one's shins is a perpetual risk in MTB. I was whacked with a pretty large stick on Saturday - and upon stopping felt it had left something in my leg.

Ripped this 'splinter' out, which was about the same size as the old style wooden match sticks, only luckily about half the length I guess.

Of course that's not a pair of tweezers doing the extraction, but a Leatherman - handy to have on the trails as always Eye-wink
