Well they certainly have a niche market. Make sure you stock your local SCA Chiurgeon’s first aid kit with these things. I’m pretty sure that Jim and Tim, the authors of The Duct Tape Book, have used duct tape to hold together limbs accidentally cut by a band saw, and these bandages certainly won’t help in those particular situations.

    I can only imagine how fun they must be to remove. I personally am an “all at once” band-aid remover.

    You think this was the invention of SCAdians?

    Duct Tape…so like the Force. It has a light side, and a dark side, and it binds the galaxy together…

  • No, I certainly know it wasn’t their invention, they just took hold of it and made it theirs. You’ll be the center of attention with your very own dull-grey band-aids.
