If a straight answer is wanted, No you cant. At least according to the video content.
He used the swiss card knife to make a tool that split the log.

Yes, I would have liked to have seen him baton that log with the Swiss Card knife.   :D

Though I have to state that Felix Immler recommends carving a wedge with your SAK and using the wedge to split the log. So maybe the video creator did it right?   :dunno:

Pretty ingenious  :like:
Battening down on that little knife to cut the branch shows how well made VIC products are, would have expected the handle to break, gives me renewed respect for my Swiss Card

 :iagree: I was surprised the knife held up to batoning across the grain.  I started wondering what you could do with a Swisscard with a little more wedge profile, made out of hard, durable plastic.   :o

He took care of just hitting the blade, not the plastic handle. I don't think he was holding the handle very tightly, too.

Never, but NEVER, under estimate Victorinox products!

Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

I would have liked to see how he started the wedges into the log. I’d think that would still be difficult.

But always nice to see what’s possible.

I dont deny the presenter's skill, and i didnt expect the card to be batoned itself, i expected the knife  :D. However i think the title is deceiving.
Maybe its just me.

Of course I wasn't expecting the title to be completely "honest", but I like how it shows you can use what's in a Swisscard to split a log.

The "Victorinox" was enough for that.
