Mythbusting an old samurai myth

can a samurai sword really chop a bullet in half?
watch and see
it’s pretty gnarly.

seems so, but who is good enough to see the bullet come at them, then aim the blade correctly?

Even worse, the trajectory only changes slightly in that short space. Someone just doubled their bullet wounds.

Yeah, there is a follow up of the sword vs bullet vid to this.

katana > 9mm bullet
katana < rifle bullet
