The thumb push

I’ve written about knife strokes previously but thought I’d make a little video showing the advantages of using the simple thumb push.  If you’ve been on one of our courses, you might remember that we use the same technique with a firesteel.

We teach using the thumb push with a knife, along with many other techniques and knife safety on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses.

You can see loads of photos on our Facebook page.
