Every time I see this, I think, "If I tried anything remotely like that, I'd lose too much blood, not to mention digits, to ever approach proficiency."

    Yeah. After watching it again, I think at that speed I'd have a couple gashes on my left arm and wrist plus a shredded shirt even before I ever got to the mad thumb slicing part...
    My thoughts exactly. The only what that I could imagine learning a technique like this is with one of those chain-mail gloves made for factory-style butchers.

    Great idea on the thread too, I can see this thread eating a lot of my time if every video is as good as the first 3.

    FUNNY **** TK. Agreed, all you can say is wow

    I actually have one of those chain-mail gloves. Very useful in deboning chickch Jacques Pepin style.

    I have been trying to duplicate what Sakai did on IC orig. Now I see the ends cut off that may help me more. Btw I keep practicing with a small petty before I get any near something that big.

    I'm pretty sure you need the weight and momentum of a big knife, unless you have Hulk-like fast twitch muscles in your wrist. That's a Western Deba he's using.

    *edit* The more I look at it, the more convinced I become that I can do it.

    ya the weight works well but you are also need to use muscle memory, then twitch when you are sure about it.

    I don't practice very much either. also my guyto is to big at the heal to use in hand.
