Actually the vid that bobO put up was really good.
It was called "Dueling cutters" I believe. It had bobO and Jonis Lowry (The founder of United Backyard Cutters)
competing against each others tameshigiri to the music from the movie "Deliverance" performing cuts in response to each other just like guitar player and banjo player did in the movie.
It was really the perfect example of what responsible backyard cutting should be, also an excellent example of brotherhood in todays world.
Until bobO got carried away at the end and started cutting buckets. If he would have edited that part out it would have been perfect. I quess he was watching too many Cold Steel vids or something. The thing is, Bob has had formal training in the sword arts and should have known better.
It was like performing a perfect dance routine on stage and ending it by picking snot out your nose.

Yea I spotted that :| if you're going to practice Tameshigiri, don't involve your children, unless your kids are seriously annoying, in which case, go for it, decapitate them :tumbsup:

That's good advert for a workmate, but not for that swordmaker.

I used to own a blade like that... pretty, but pretty sh*t.

Just watched this again... excuse me while I kiss the sky. I'd be able to leg it before this fella could learn to write his name.
