Katana

These guys are back at it:

I did the above embed at the 8:57 timestamp, which in my opinion is the best.  There are plenty of other slow motion shots in the video (of varying bottle cutting success), so if you’re interested just move the slider back.

R.I.P. Kairo Seijuro, the realest one to do it. (LINK VID)

Bless up to the Katana unboxing dude.

Thoughts? Sword guys are way weirder than gun guys, discuss haha.

This is the best thing I’ve seen in a while:

LOL amazing… I CAN’T BREATHE haha.  Looks like this is about a year old.  Also, after posting it on IG I was told this guy died in a Kayaking accident (naturally with the Katana strapped to the Kayak).  Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Thoughts?

Yep, blade guys are confirmed weird:

Best-Sword-For-Home-DefenseIf you missed the home defense katana derp from yesterday make sure to check it out also.

2:58 – ROFL a shield!  Oh man if I could be a fly on the wall where someone got home invaded and used a sword and shield to thwart an attack.  I’d literally drown in a pool of my own laughter tears.

At the end of the day ridiculousness aside, I would have to agree that a pokey object would be a lot better than a pillow or fists for home defense.  I’d still pick a gun over everything obviously.

This guy talks a lot of some self defense sword and shield techniques towards the end, like he’s a damn TIER -31 swordsman.

You gotta defend your home with some flare.  The katana offers that as demonstrated:

Katana-Home-DefenseThis guy has loads of sword and knife videos.  I always hear about how blade guys are “eccentric”, and I suppose this is some further proof.  If you have some time, he is getting roasted in his own YouTube comments section it’s pretty funny.

You thinking of swording up to defend your home or what?  The fact this video has existed on the internet since Feb 10, 2012 and it’s my first time seeing it, makes me disappointed in myself.

Magical:

its-tape-katana-memehaha this is awesome.  If Can Cannon isn’t paying Matt thousands of dollars per month for all this advertising, they are getting off easy.  I’m guessing a lot of people wouldn’t ever have found out about or cared about the can cannon until Matt started making hilarious videos with it.

He used tactical tape, so I felt the need to use the thumbnail from one of my favorite videos – the katana unboxing.

100 MPH fast ball cut in half:

Isao Machii is the sword lord.  He holds a number of Guinness world records for sword related stunts.  There’s a slow motion shot at the end of the video (2:11).

its-tape-katana-memeIt would be cool to see him do something bullet related… like hit a bullet in mid flight with a frying pan or something.  That’s probably above his skill level, and also way more dangerous.  100 MPH is only 147 ft/sec, whereas a 115 gr. 9mm bullet flies at around 1300 ft/sec (faster than the speed of sound – 1125 ft/sec).  With anything though I’m sure if even a beginner grabbed a katana and did this 100 times in a row, he/she would probably be able to slice the baseball at least once if they had the timing figured out judging by the whoosh sound.

Remember this Katana unboxing?  Probably the greatest unboxing video ever made.

Thoughts?
