Step 1: Gripping the Knife
Take your hands and grab onto the handle of the blade. Make your hand as a fist while holding. Lock your hands and strike woods for wood shaving or to whittle. You can also use this grip to penetrate objects.
Step 2: Bottle Opener
The back of the blade can be used to pop open glass bottles. Take the spine of the blade and use the groove on the spine to pop open a bottle.
