Batoning with a knife is an important bushcraft skill and one that we use regularly for processing wood. Take a look at this video to see how to safely undertake batoning with a knife. You might want to take a look at this post on knife safety before trying this yourself. Remember to find a suitable stump to work on and make sure that it’s on level ground.
This is a vital bushcraft skill that we cover on our 2 Day Bushcraft Course, 5 Day Bushcraft Course, IOL Bushcraft Training Course as well as our 2 Day Survival Course and 5 Day Survival Course. You can see photos from these, and all of our other courses, on our Facebook page.
