I run the blade against the long side of the bone and work it up and over to the bump........notice the angle and that i never use more than "1 1/2  - "2 of the knife.

Then i work the knife on the other side of the bump and around to the bottom.

Then U free one side and work the knife against the bone lifting the bone and cutting it away from the butt...........

Then I use the slit from where the bone was to determine where to slice and open the butt like a book......be sure not to slice all the way through.
