Guys, come on. This is like the "will the glass dildo shatter in my vagina and cut me?!" paranoia. No. You won't get a splinter from a smooth, finished item. Think of how often we use wood in furniture, housing, cookware, etc. Do you get splinters from them? Nope--they're made to make sure that doesn't happen. These toys are totally safe, and all it takes is a little research to find that out. They would not sell like $100+ hotcakes if this was an issue. They aren't giving you freshly sawed logs to masturbate with. It's not just a tree branch torn from a tree. These things have been sanded and finished to be as smooth as glass (which is, by the way, also safe, sturdy, and damn near impossible to break without dropping it from a 25 story building).
