If you are wondering how to use a boot knife, then you have come to the right place. Learning how to use a pocket knife is not as difficult as you might think. In fact, it can be pretty easy if you learn how to do everything the correct way. The first thing that you will need to know is what kind of blade your boot knife has. It will be either a knife with a tang or a blade.
The difference between these two makes a big difference in how to use it. If you are looking for a straight edge then you will want to make sure that the blade is straight. If you are looking for a pocket knife that will do more things than just cut rope then you will want a blade that will do other things such as poke out cans or pry open pots and boxes. Your choice will be dictated by what you are going to be using your knife for and also by how much use you want from it.
Once you have decided on the type of blade that you want to get, you will need to find a good spot to hold your new item. This may sound obvious but it is important that you find a place that is clean and dry and does not get in the way of anything you want to do with it. Another important consideration when learning how to use a boot knife is how to hold the blade so that you do not damage it. The way you hold the blade determines how much damage it can do so it is recommended that you learn how to hold a blade in this order: with the handle facing away from you, towards you with the blade resting at the tip of your finger, and towards you again with the blade at the tip of your finger.
