How to make

  • Process 1

    First, make an incision diagonally.
    Raise and lower the tip of the knife like a seesaw to get deeper, instead of pressing it down or moving it back and forth like a saw.

  • Process 2

    Make a cut at the same angle from the other side so that the cut is V-shaped.
    At this time, let's connect the cuts at the bottom.

  • Process 3

    Repeat steps 1 and 2 to deepen the groove.

Important point

Don't try to finish it once, try to finish it with two or three cuts.
The trick is to stab the knife straight so that the groove is not rounded.
