Hey guys, Just adding another video to this wonderful thread. I did it for e2e
How to Split Wood (Baton) for wilderness Survival, Equip 2 Endure (HD) - YouTube
Iz, excellant vids. Very pesonable and informative. Taught me some new tricks, reminded me of old tricks and brought to light some bad habits to fix. Thanks a ton.
Thanks for watching and for the kind words, Joe.
I am very new to Bushcraft. I was a boy scout as a boy, but I grew up on an army base located on a Pacific Island so we had limited opportunities to truly get out and test out the skills we learned. I never thought about using a mallet (makeshift or otherwise) to assist the knife with cutting tasks. Thanks for putting this up, I cannot wait to practice this and put it to use in the future.
I'm with Morlog; this is something I may never have thought of. A knife is the one tool I ALWAYS cary, so I'm pretty excited to make use of this skill.
You bet, bdub. Thanks for saying so, my friend.
Great guide, thanks!
I am planning on purchasing a few pre made knife blade kits from knifekits.com. It is called the drop point hunter. Here is the link to it. http://www.knifekits.com/vcom/produc...oducts_id=4092
I honk it is a good deal. Does anybody else? Should I make mine from scratch? I have all finds or hardwood for a nice handle.
