Cut String With Your Hands

Want to impress everyone on the jobsite by cutting through string with your bare hands? In this video, Essential Craftsman shows us how.  All it takes is a little bit of friction and a small amount of slight of hand. But there’s no magic involved, just friction. Cutting string with your hands isn’t just a party trick. This is legit technique that could come in handy (no pun intended) if you’re out on the job and don’t have a utility knife nearby. Plus, it could win you $20.

Essential Craftsman videos feature Scott Wadsworth. Scott started working as a craftsman in 1974. His career has encompassed logging, saw milling, guiding elk hunters, production framing, commercial concrete, steel fabrication, blacksmithing, and every aspect of residential carpentry and contracting. Scott has been married to his high school sweetheart Kelly Comerford for 39 years. They have four children and ten grandchildren. His son Nate handles the video production and whip-cracking side of Essential Craftsman.
