In brief: Nerve injury

The nerves that give sensation to the fingers run down the length of the fingers on each side but closer to the underside or palm surface.
You may have partially cut a branch or the nerve itself. It will most likely improve in time. Nerves grow about 1mm a day so it may take a month or two.
