Why does a paper cut sting really badly but other cuts don't?

Additional Details
Okay, if it does slice thru nerve endings then why do other cuts not do that? I mean i've had paper cuts then i've had normal cuts on they do not feel the same...

because paper comes from trees the miniscule seeds from the afore mentioned trees become inbeded in your skin an instentaneously start to grow given the perfect growth conditions within the body if not treated you will become half man half tree

it slices thru the nerve endings -the most sensitive areas.

Because the cut is so close to the nerve ending.

the sharper the cutting instrument the less the sting, paper is dull

Because of the added ingredient of extreme irritation.

Its because of the width of the sheet, is like cutting yourself with a extreemly honed razorblade.

blades of grass have the same effect
if they cut you it really stings bad and thumps
like its really badly bruised

it's the added humiliation of being cut by a damn piece of paper, thats just pathetic. On the other hand getting cut by a sword while killing communist or fending off ninjas feels awesome (and communist-ninja-inflicted wounds feel like a swedish massage, it's amazing)

these small cuts do not cut very deep but they cut into the dermis which contains a very large number of pain/pressure/touch receptors. touch is felt to different intensities from light touch all the way up to pain. a paper cut is concentrated in the dermis where all these receptors are. deeper cuts often sever these receptor fibres. paper cuts don't damage these nerves enough to destroy - just make them hurt like crazy- this is why grazes can hurt so much. the ratio of nerves to actual damage caused is quite high - its actually a measure of how deep the damage goes. (pain that is)
