    Last I heard they were fracturing at the cut in the spine when being batoned.

    It does look like that would be a stress riser for sure.

    ..and to pull pots off the fire.
    as for the breaking when batoning, maybe if you are trying to pound the knife thru a knot.... but any knife is capable of breaking under those circumstances.

    Is he trying to go through a knot?

    Also, I'm not a batoning guy, what is the proper technique? I've always thought batoning was kinda silly.

    I'd blame the guy in the video...that log was way to big to be batonned and he ran through a knot, and his technique is horrible.

    That's also just one knife, how many other breaks are documented?

    I don't think he should be allowed to own a knife.
