    This is for the old request thread. I figured it was a fun subject to cover and since it never got done I thought I'd try it.
    There's four parts, I hate talking and I hate hearing my own voice but I couldn't get them any shorter than this. Sorry for babbling on so much.
    The last video isn't 10 minutest btw, I screwed up the upload so it's got about five minutes of dead space at the end.
    Hope you like it, there's nothing revolutionary here so if you already use your knives a lot then it's not worth your time to watch these.
    Special thanks goes to Iawoodsman for the instruction on big knife use.

    Great techniques demo Iz! I wish I could make the 'anti-batoner's' sit through and watch that just to show how much versatility they remove from their toolbox by foregoing a simple action out of principle. Also provides a wonderful demo of why a fixed blade opens up so many more doors compared to a folder!

    Yeah, I figure this thing might kick up some anti battoners before it's all said and done.:54:

    Lol. Thanks, Matt. I use music so much because I hate listening to myself.


    Thanks, guys.

    Nice content on the vids brother. But, you can shorten them all by about 12 seconds by loosing the pretentious intro.

    I finally got around to watching these. Awesome! I like the work your away around like a beaver comment. Makes a lot of sense, I've seen a lot of people just attack a tree from one side.

    Not complaining at all. LOVED THE VIDS, and I use most of those techniques at least once a week. However the sub heading might want to read: Useful ways to void your warrantee!
