#1

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

#2

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


#3

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


#4

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

katana > 9mm bullet
katana < rifle bullet
