I can't say if it's a fake or not. Lead is quite soft stuff.

Its not like a guy chopped a speeding bullet fired at his head in half. Human bone is cabable of fragmenting a bullet so an ultra hard and sharp sword bolted down would have no problem with a relatively soft matieral like lead.

come on thats cool
Moridin (guest)  -  July 26, 2006, 01:42
Steel is many times harder then lead, which the pullets are made of. The softness is one of the reason for using it, gets deformed on impact making more damage (especially hollow point). Now, if you shot it sideways, I'm fairly sure you'd break the sword however.

Now all we need to do is increase our reflex speeds and we can be real life jedi!

Now I understand why some Katanas are called 'horse-slayer'
Jon  -  July 26, 2006, 02:48
didde, why can't you just accept that somethings are real. Saying it's fake is a real downer, even if it was.
Spate (guest)  -  July 26, 2006, 10:47
I agree with the others in that there's plenty of reasons to think this is genuine. Jon: "The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one." You know what'd be a real pain in the ass? Actually managing to be that accurate, then getting a half-bullet in each shoulder. :p

the japanese have to be sooo hapy about that
The Bean (guest)  -  July 27, 2006, 01:18
( lol to ninja's post) I'm afraid there's gonna a load retards that try this for real well before human reflex's get high enough to do it. Also they should've brought out the dreaded 50 cal. and see how the sword would hold up to that.
didde  -  July 27, 2006, 19:49
Well, listen to the word "fake" how awesome dosen't it soud "FAEK". Just had to write it here, i didn't mean that the video was fake, eh! No, but acctually, if it aint fake, it's pretty cool! yes, it is.
Nolan  -  July 27, 2006, 22:48
its not fake coz the bullets lead and the sword is steel and its going into the sharp side and thats the stronger side of the sword and ffs i know alot about guns thats a 9mm CZ85 THATS NOT A fake VIDEO FOOLS

didde, i'd like to see ur comment on 'Katana Vs Machinegun' movie wich will be, with a little bit of luck, uploaded soon
Robert (guest)  -  July 28, 2006, 16:20
You all need to know one thing, and you know if you ever held a gun in your hand and tried to shoot at something, that a bullet in a rapid speed, has accumulated alot of energy. wether the bullet is lead or diamond, doesnt matter, this energy has to go somewehere on impact. Conclusion? A bullet explodes on impact, and its not even close to possible that a sword could fragment a bullet. You have my word for that.
Santoz (guest)  -  July 28, 2006, 17:31
I dig Nolan. Also I´m sick and tired of readin´it´s fake or not. Peace guys!
moa (guest)  -  July 28, 2006, 20:34
Nt mutch energy transfers on impact with the sword if they just shot on the edge of it. If u block a bullet with a sword i think u would use the biggest side
Dante (guest)  -  July 29, 2006, 06:07
What I want to know is...if the bullet is traveling at a wicked fast speed through the air, and is turning at a montrous rate....would the bullet halves be sort of spiral-ish? That'd be cool.

quello che ho sempre sognato... la perfezione di una lama
Namnlös (guest)  -  August 2, 2006, 17:23
Ofcourse the bullet is destroyed. First of bullets are made to deform at impact. Two steel are many times more durable then lead. Three the edge of the blade is so sharp that the bullet can't transmit enough energy to destroy it. And just as a bonus you can't even shot through the water surface past a certain angle with supersonic weapons as the bullet explodes on impact. Face it bullets aren't made to hold (or the case is slightly differnt for full metal jacket bullets, but that's beside the question)

First was someting close to chocked, and it's a very cool video, but I'm not really suprised. First, like everyone said, it's lead. Second, these japanese swords are some quality swords I tell you. A strong or skilled hand is able to actually chop a man in half, bone and all, with one of these. The only other swords mad of similar quality was during a shorter perios of time in spain.
Gunsmith (guest)  -  August 9, 2006, 13:26
Interesting video. Wonder if it had been the same result using a high powered rifle instead of a Colt 45? The bullet from the colt government used in this experiment travels at approx. 250 m/s while a rifle reaches some 800-1000 m/s. I think it would have made a lot of difference.
Namlös (guest)  -  August 13, 2006, 10:26
Would depend, with a harder bullet the impact may make the blade vibrate so intense it might shatter. Now I don't hope anyone thinks that the sword is like new after a threatment like that, i quite certain would make the blade a bit blunt where the bullet hit. Just like any other knife, it might be very hard and sharp but it's still just steel.
Masterfrog (guest)  -  August 13, 2006, 19:57
Actually, theoretically mind you, if something is sharp enough it cannot be blunted if it's only hit in exactly the right angle, because anything that would hit it there breaks before even touching the material itself. Not that anything can be that sharp in real life (because it is constantly hit by a multitude of particels in the wrong angle. Air etc.), but something that is really sharp still takes a longer time to blunt for exactly this effect. If hit in the right angle, as stated. And katanas are VERY sharp. It is infact the only real secret to their success, that their makes have found a technique to make them exceptionally sharp.

Badeanden90 is so fucking gay his putting his fucking positive comments everywhere but hes a real fucking asshole wanker (danish?)
ranting_swede  -  November 27, 2006, 01:16
fake or not, its still pretty cool
per (guest)  -  January 11, 2007, 19:13
Of course its true! I've seen them doing the same experiment using a revolver and another which they used a .50 caliber machinegun (the sword took plenty of bullets before it snapped).. So its true alright, its documented and everything
