In outdoor activities, knives are indispensable tools. Here are a few tips for using knives to make you more comfortable.
Tip 1: Correct gripping can improve the control and safety of the tool. Use a full grip or thumb grip to ensure the handle stays firmly in your hand while maintaining comfort and flexibility.
Tip 2: Mastering the position of the center of gravity of the knife helps to better control the cutting edge. In general, the center of gravity is located near the junction of the blade and the handle. Pay attention to the position of the center of gravity when using it, so that the cutting of the knife is more accurate.
Tip three, the back of the knife usually contains a high carbon content and can be used for spark ignition. By scraping the back of a knife with a flint or magnesium rod, the resulting spark can ignite flammable materials and provide you with a source of ignition.
Tip 4: The handle is usually strong and durable, and can be used for some emergency work, such as using the end of the handle as a glass breaker or striker to help you break through danger or send a distress signal.
Tip five, tool polishing can increase its corrosion resistance. Many tool surfaces are susceptible to corrosion, and you can increase the corrosion resistance of the tool by slightly polishing. Using fine sandpaper to grind the material, carefully rubbing the surface of the knife, and then applying a thin layer of rust inhibitor can protect the knife from oxidation.
Tip six, different knives have different cutting angles, the correct cutting angle can improve cutting efficiency and the life of the cutting edge. Pay attention to the cutting angle when using the knife and adjust it appropriately according to your needs to obtain the best cutting effect.
Tip seven, the outdoor environment is often wet or muddy, in order to increase the safety of the knife, you can carry out anti-slip treatment on the surface of the knife handle. Wrapping the handle with non-slip tape, rubber sleeves or ropes provides better grip and control.
