Carving a notch in a hearth board

A knife is arguably your most important tool in a bushcraft setting so becoming competent in the use of a knife is high priority.  So in this video I’ show you how to carve a notch into a bow drill hearth board.  This is a good practical application and something that you can practice at home.

We teach carving a notch in a herath board on our IOL Bushcraft Competency Training course.

You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
