Awww, I totally feel your pain.  I've definitely lost a few chunks of fingers carving linoleum blocks.  Do you have a bench hook?  It's a z shaped piece of metal you can buy at craft stores that holds your block on the table, and you can just carve away without having to grip the block on all sides.

Here's more info on the bench hooks

Yech. Once, during art class, my friend cut most of the top of her index finger off and completely removed the nail. I had to wrap her hand up in my school skirt and run her to the carpark and wait for an ambulance with her *literally* screaming for a good 40 minutes. Poor girl, her finger never grew back.

eewwww... hope you're healing well!

If the lino has you backing off, have you tried the soft block carving materials?  There are a few different kinds out there but none of them need the force that lino needs to carve.  I like SpeedyCut and use an exacto knife but a lot of folks thinks it's too dusty.  You can use the tools you already have on this stuff.

There is another material for block printing that is easier to carve than lino. It is made by the Staedtler Mars company, they make awesome erasers. The block looks like a giant piece of the eraser material, because it probably is... Google them.
