Knife Skills & Safety
July 27 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Most of us didn’t grow up with a knife in hand, whittling tools and creature comforts from the landscape out of necessity. Knife skills are disappearing, and becoming a much underappreciated skill. This class is fantastic for all experience and skill levels.
We will cover a range of skills from:
- knife and axe safety
- useful saw techniques and safety
- biomechanics of knife use (how to use your knife more efficiently when calories count)
Knife skills seem simple…take sharp edge, remove wood, try not to cut yourself. Like most bushcraft and survival skills, the devil is in the details. This workshop will provide you the training to effectively and safely use sharp cutting tools in the field.
The instructors have a knack for gauging your experience level and giving you appropriately challenging tasks to progress your skills. This is done from varying projects from tent stakes to wooden spoons and netting needles. No prior experience needed, but if its there, you will be challenged.
