hey mountainman. as jackie has stated, you were not at risk. there is no need to discuss this anymore or talk about theoretical far-fetched risks.

here is your definitive answer. no one has ever been infected through shaking hands. cut or no cut. you do not ever have to worry about HIV when shaking hands. your small cut is irrelevant. unless you were both bleeding profusely and had significant wound-to-wound contact, you do not have to worry.
