Rothco Survival Tip: Batoning Wood

Batoning wood is a useful technique for camping or survival scenario. If you find yourself in the position where you don't have an axe and need dry firewood or need to make the wood of an adequate size, this method will prove helpful.

All you'll need is a fixed blade knife and "baton"; any sturdy, existing piece of wood at your disposal will do. It's best to find a stump or other solid surface to baton on. Wedge the knife into the center of the wood and then drive the knife through the wood with the baton.
