If you’ve been watching for a while, you know John P. is a bladesmith and there’s never a shortage of sharp edges around the Livid Lobster offices, including his trusty katana. So what happens when an unsuspecting watermelon wanders in? What do you think?

    curious, what kind of katana was that, it doesn’t look like one of those cheap stainless deals. Is it a custom forge folded katana, a hanwei forge one or one john made himself?

      It’s actually a cheap Musashi. It’ll do the job, and it’s obviously actually a forged, hardened and sharp blade, but I would NOT rely on it to save my life in battle! The watermelon actually bent the blade and I had to straighten it!

        wow, that watermelon didn’t want to go down without a fight lol. It might have been from the stroke you used to cut the watermelon, it looked like you twisted slightly so you didn’t get a clean straight stroke, but very cool nonetheless. Love to see more on katanas in future shows
