In brief: See a doc

If a cut on the hand is deep enough to see bone it should be evaluated by a hand specialist or an emergency physician.
There are many things that can be injured between the skin and the bone including tendons, nerves and blood vessels. We also worry about infection in the hand as this can have serious consequences.
