    Default Tameshigiri - art of cutting

    Does anyone have more stuff like this to see? It's rather impressive!

    It takes skill and control to cut like that. The raw egg cut and the flower cuts are particularly impressive, as well as the bottle cuts and the watermelon cut. All of them are probably very difficult - if I tried it I'd probably only send the object across the room.

    slow motion effects are beautiful. epic video. lol@soda cut. nice accuracy on the flower cuts.

    btw, someone should make a game or something where theres fruit and stuff being thrown up into the air and you have to cut it with a sword like that like a ninja

    Awww, don't underestimate yourself! If you stick to light targets (Water bottles and fruit for example) and have a decent blade, you should be more worried about the blade continuing through your target and catching something on the other side than batting it away. (Disclaimer: Don't expect to have rediculously clean cuts like in the video, though. Nor am I advocating that anyone who has never held a sword before should go out and pick up a live blade and start swinging it around... )



    But, yeah, it's both amazing and beautiful, isn't it? A blade larger than a baseball bat being capable of such clean precise cuts is nothing short of amazing, in my opinion.

    Hah I'd totally play that! I bet some indie developer has or will make one somewhere.

    I found a new video - this guy is crazy! He like cuts out the bottom and its still standing and he cuts it above where he first cut it, some times in the same direction which seems like it would be really hard because it's cutting in the direction that it would most easily fall without just knocking it over.

    Those were the ones I was most impressed with as well. That egg, I wasn't sure whether it was raw or not until after --- what a clean slice.

    Spectacular! I wanted to see more of this guy. Thanks!

    Edit: The BB cut and iron cut are kinda just for fun and show but that pea bean cut is probably the most impressive horizontal cut I've ever seen - the comment in the video is right, even a slight mistake in the angle and it doesn't cut, it just flies away instead, plus it's only a few mm high coming from the side like that.
