Mors Kochanski Cutting Tools Video

I've watched this video through a couple of times since getting it and it is pretty good. It isn't quite up to the standard of the sticks as tools or clothing and sleeping bags DVDs I bought a few months ago though.
Essentially this is a video accompaniment to the 3 chapters on cutting tools in Mors' book Bushcraft. It is well presented and interesting but there isn't a great deal of new material here. The section on safe knife use is good as you get to see Mors splitting a log into shingles using a knife, baton and a splitting wedge he carved with the first split from the log.
It is a good video but doesn't contain as much information on knife skills as I had hoped it would - I'd probably give it a solid 7/10 and suggest it is one to borrow rather than buy if you've already got the book.
