Make Kindling With A Knife (Batoning)

In this video we demonstrate how to make kindling with a knife using a technique called batoning. You start by lodging the blade of your knife into the piece of wood you would like to make kindling out of. You then take a second piece of wood, called your baton, and you hammer your knife down into the wood. You repeat this process to create kindling or just smaller pieces of wood. This technique is great for a camping, survival or bug out situation where all you have is a knife. This technique will save you weight and space by allowing you to only pack a good knife rather than an ax or hatchet.
