✅ KNOW SMTH LIKE THE BACK OF YOUR HAND 
- I used to know grammar like the back of my hand until VK stopped me from downloading books. 

✅ KNOW SMTH INSIDE OUT 
- Don't worry, I can save your pet. I know a cat's anatomy inside out! 

✅ KNOW SMTH BACKWARDS & FORWARDS 
- Mum, no need to teach me how to use the washing machine. I know this thing backwards and forwards. See how clean the dog is? 

✅ TO KNOW ONE'S STUFF 
- What's 4+5? No idea! Ask Steven Hawking. He really knows his stuff. 

✅ KNOW LIKE A BOOK (a bit old fashioned) 
- I know this forest; every tree, every river - like a book! 

✅ TO DO SMTH BLINDFOLDED 
- Cook shashliki? It's so simple. I can do it blindfolded. Now pass me the petrol! 

✅ TO DO SMTH WITH YOUR EYES SHUT (same as above) 
- Oh stop hassling me! I've been driving for 40 years. I can drive with my eyes... 

✅ TO KNOW ONE'S WAY AROUND SMTH (usually mechanical) 
- Let me see why your car isn't working! I know my way around a Lada engine! 

Note: 
✅ READ SOMEONE LIKE A BOOK (to discern someone's thoughts from his or her body language or other behaviour) 
- I know you're lying to me. I can read you like a book. After all, we've been married for 90 years. 

✅ TO KNOW FULL/PERFECTLY WELL (to know something while pretending not to, usually through ignorance or naivety) 
- Don't bother making excuses. You know perfectly well you can't serve raw chicken, especially to the Queen.
