> This got me thinking. Seeing that I don't carry a knife with a blade

large would this gash have to be?
Imagine you are moving downhill on a rocky trail and lose your balance.
Falling forward you land on your outstretched hand and suddenly have a
2-inch gash in the palm of your hand, or on your forearm as it scraped a
rock. It is several layers of skin thicknesses deep and bleeds quite
heavily. What are you going to do?
