If you hold it in front of you, picture that you are holding a big oval. On your right hand, your thumb is up, on your left hand your thumb is down. Now make like you’re going to make them the opposite of what they are. Rotate your left hand so your thumb is up and your right hand so your thumb is down. Do it slowly and the blade will coil itself. Practice with a 1/4 or 3/8 blade. Might want to wear gloves until you get it, but once you do, you’ll kick yourself at how easy it is. I hadn’t done it in almost 30 years, but after 2 or 3 tries it came back to me and I can coil ‘em right up again.
