are you ready?

a fish hook.

seriously...

I had several deep palm splinters I was having difficulty removing, and I was sitting at a stoplight in my truck and looked down at the console and there was a fishing lure there, and I thought to myself "I wonder if that would work?

I had 'em all popped out before the light turned green... with little or no pain....

VICTORY!

Sounds about right. I use a sterilized needle to remove splinters.

might have to try that. I currently take an xacto knife and cut the skin open a little more to expose the splinter. Then i use the point of the knife and tweezers to dig it out.

Big T scores!

Fish hook would work on the easy to novice level ones, but, most of mine are doozies (through the cheesy gloves level) to which, I apply the scorched hook blade. But not at a traffic light.
