Slow deaths and stabbing

I'm looking for a way to kill someone that will condemn them to a slow and painful death (hours to days), but not take that much time on the part of the killer (i.e., "I want you to suffer, but why should I have to make a hole in my schedule for you?"). Magic is a possibility, poison isn't, and I want it to be something that can't be repaired. It's a setting with low technology, but decent medical knowledge.

Unrelated, what kind of injury would you expect from someone who's been stabbed through the hand with a very sharp object about the size of a standard knitting needle, maybe a little smaller? I'm envisioning a wound that goes into the palm at an angle and comes out between two of the knuckles? What damage would that do, and what would the recovery time be like?
