There was a video of a katana splitting a bullet that popped across my facebook newsfeed today. Then it was sent to me by a couple of different friends. I figured it was worth a share.
Since not every reader can view videos from facebook, I didn’t want to make it the cornerstone of this post. I had forgotten that they did this for the final test on the first episode of Forged in Fire, and as tonight was the season 2 premier, I decided to use it. (the facebook one is below the jump)
I ended up chasing a few rabbits as I dug deeper into bullet splitting. As it turns out, you don’t need a razor-sharp piece of Japanese craftsmanship to accomplish the feat. An ordinary butter knife will work just fine.
