Step 1 – Opening or extending your pocket knife

First, you will need to open or extend your pocket knife’s blade.

If you’re using a folding pocket knife, hold the handle tightly and use your thumb to push upwards on the flipper. This will rotate the blade around the pivot, opening the knife.

Step 3 – Making your cuts

You should always cut using consistent motions in the same direction, making sure to slice away from your body, not towards it. If the task at hand requires a ‘pulling’ cutting motion, simply stand to the side, away from the direction of the cut.

Apply downward, continuous pressure into the material being cut.

Step 4 – Close or retract pocket knife

Once your cut is completed, close your pocket knife. To close a folding pocket knife, hold the handle firmly in the tips of your fingers and the blade on the non-sharp outside edge, applying pressure to snap it back into the blade housing in the handle.
