    And yet anecdotes as evidence.

    What are you on about these days? Were you re-reading some old thread and decided you needed a new argument?

    It is good to see you dismissing anecdotal evidence these days.

    Especially if you are working the self defense niche as there is so much of it that is just wrong.

    I will get you working with scientific method next.

    Who knows, maybe someday I'll get you to work with consistency in arguments.

    The sheer number of comments tells me people are debating this and there is no debate. Finger nails can be effectively used, yes, even at shorter lengths (i did read some comments).

    Short nails (like I keep mine) aren't reliable for doing anything with the actual nail. In fact, that's why they're short - so I don't do inadvertent damage while grappling. So, where you say "nails", I have to translate to "fingertips".123
