    So, I've been spending the last week working on this butterfly knife trick. It's more a collaboration of a bunch of tricks, but it comes down to: One trick, throw (switch hands), one trick, throw (back into normal hand), close. I never seemed to get the throw right, or my catch would be a little off, or my fingers would seem too fat and slow.

    Finally, earlier today, I managed to do it once. That finally gave me that feel I needed, and after practicing for 2-3 hours or so since then, I've pretty much nailed it!

    Hope it provides some form of entertainment.

    Is that blood on your hands [​IMG]?

    edit: entertaining [​IMG] Is it actually a knife? I've never seen this kind of thing (or I don't remember it), so I wouldn't know [​IMG]

    yes, it is an actual knife, but I practice using a practice blade (almost no edge)

    no, no blood on my hands!

    I heartilly disagree...maybe if you worked at the barbers, or the butchers, or are a pirate, you would look pretty l337 waving it around

    playing games isn't very useful, neither is swinging poi or fire chains nor wanking or watching tv or countless other things people do.

    at least iwakura is doing something different and more interesting than the norm.

    I've got a phobia of youtube so haven't watched the vid, but congrats.

    Well, i've never seen the need to actually use it for self defense, but it's always fun to whip out one show off a bit. it breaks any awkward silence [​IMG]

    That was fucking sweet!

    Twirling shit always hypes me up, 'specially if it's dangerous, adds a bit of suspense and excitement. I'm a sucker for these kind of things... [​IMG]

    Great job iwakura! [​IMG]

    (Can we expect any other knife tricks in the future? [​IMG] )

    hell yes! I didn't think it would be that interesting, but I'd love to upload future videos on knife tricks xD

    oh yeah, and I have 2 youtube usernames (iwakura and 4njo0) to keep my reviews and semi-personal videos separate [​IMG]

    it's real, but i make sure I get stuff nailed with a practice before i break out the real blades.

    here's the blade up close:
