Friday Film Fest: A bit of everything Edition

Today’s videos, in addition to being 12 hours late, lack any particular theme or unifying principle. But I hope you enjoy them regardless.

Balisongs are one of the coolest if least practical styles of knife. I have had the chance to play around with one, and manipulating a balisong is even more addicting than flinging throwing knives ( The video above is a good breakdown of a reverse-grip opening maneuver.


Number 2 is a neat trick that I need to try out sometime. According to “Deer Meat for Dinner”, you can use the top edge of a glass truck window to touch up the edge of a knife. If someone tries this before I get to it, let us know how it goes.

Our next video is a montage of knife throwing experts demonstrating throws from the movies. including  The Matrix, Kill Bill and my favorite scene from the Magnificent Seven. Cool stuff IMHO.

Lastly, a little bit of culinary magic. Videos like this one have been around for a while, but I just stumbled across this technique for dicing a half watermelon at one time with strategic slices.

That wraps up this week’s edition. Please let us know what you are liking/not liking/want to see more of in future editions of TTAK’s FFF.

    Video #2 is a lot like using the bottom of a coffee cup, that works pretty well, so the window should do okay. Both are like a substitute for a ceramic stick.

    #2–Bottom of a coffee cup/mug also works.
