Slow Motion Cutting Practise

More waste disposal

This was spontaneous recorded when I had some friends over for my birthday. The weather was very cold and cloudy but I really wanted to give my new camera a try and create some slow motion footage with the 200 FPS mode.

I also decided to utilise my dashcam for a second angle. That turned out surprisingly well and I’ll probably use a similiar setup again.

We had a lot of trouble with the cold. The water froze immediately. Even on the blade. That totally ruined the balance. It’s save to assume that people back then had the same trouble while fighting in the wintertime. We had to bring the sword inside for proper cleaning as the ice kept forming on the blade.

        • @bekopharm 👍 Very nice footage! Cutting twice looks so easy in cinema or tv, but seems to be very difficult in reality. Or is that maybe because of this (heavy and long?) kind of sword?

        • @ubo yes, in training but not with partners. For this there are “sharp simulators” that are basically plastic ones with a saw teeth like shape.It really depends on what is trained. e.g. not going to waste a sharp on a pell (beside some half-swording mebbe).
