Bamboo is not just useful for making furniture and feeding pandas, it can also be used for fashioning small knives. Although bamboo is not generally that popular for bushcraft, it can come in handy due to its unique—and brittle—structure.

As Manny Edwards shows in the video below, bamboo can be cut and splintered in such a way that it provides a thin blade that is especially useful for cutting meat. The process usually requires a metal knife to produce and bamboo dulls very quickly, so you may be better off finding a sharp rock instead.

Still, if you are in an area with bamboo that you can utilize, this may come in handy.
