5 and only one of those was anything drastic. I was using an X-acto blade to free a part from a plastic model kit tree, the blade slipped and hit my left index finger. Never seen one of my phalanges before and never hope to again.

Negative macho points here. Although I get cut on a semi-regular basis, I almost never form a scar. Even the spot where I peeled the back of my hand open on the jagged edge of a Corolla fender (saw my ring finger tendon, seven stitches required to close) is just a slight discoloration after a little over a year.

Only two that are at all noticeable, one on the palm of my right hand (sliced it from the side of my hand to the middle on a piece of sheet metal) and one on my right middle finger (was fixing a metal swiveling chair; the chair moved and my finger got caught between the chair and the bottom pole). That's it.

Too many to count. I've only worked on the F18 for less than a year and my hands already have numerous scars. Just yesterday I got two new ones when taking off the Lox converter, they are deep mofo's too. Oh well, it all heals eventually.

One caused by handling a stray cat in Turkey. This little fella had never been handled before, was terrified of people, and I had to catch him to get him to the vet (one of his eyes were missing and he was peeing blood). He was the brother of the kitten I brought home from turkey- unfortunately, she was run over by a car after 2 years. I still think of her and her precious siblings when I look at that scar. It's placed on the back of my left hand, and is always visible, although mostly during summertime when I get a tan and it turns bright white.
the second one, I got when my other cat had a seizure and accidentally scratched me. He was put down 1 hour later, and that scar is also serving as a way for me to remember him every day. It's on the back of my left middle finger.

Wow... I never pay attention to these. Eww.
Left hand: scar between my thumb and index finger--an otherwise nice dog bit me as it was recovering from anesthesia (I worked as a vet tech in college).
Left wrist: scar from surgery for a wrist fracture
Left middle finger: 1/2" scar from cutting my finger open while moving a piece of classroom furniture last December. Made it through the class before heading to the campus health clinic, where it was sutured (the students were all appropriately impressed).
Right knuckles: All scarred. I'll spare everyone the stupid details.

One very small one on the "pinky" finger of my right hand. Can't remember what I was doing at the time (as I was still very young) but I do recall I cut my finger on the end of the pedal on my tricycle. Its very small and I can only see it when the light is just right.
