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.
