Found My New Hobby: Guy Competing In Thailand Knife Cutting Competition

July 5, 2017

This is a video of a contestant competing in the 2017 Thailand Knife Cutting Competition. He uses a single-handed blade to chop a board, some rope, a couple balls, a really thin stick, and some plastic bottles. That knife seems pretty legit. Thankfully, he has it attached to his wrist via a lanyard so he doesn't accidentally kill a judge. Still, I was a little disappointed with the turnout for the competition. If somebody told me there was going to be some sort of knife-wielding contest nearby I would be camping out for days before just to make sure I got a good seat. Everyone here seems like they were just walking by and happened to stop to see what was going on. That makes me sad. And you know what happens when I get sad. "You lock yourself in your room and cry until your mom knocks on the door to check on you and you tell her to go away even though you really just want somebody to talk to." Why's growing up have to be so hard?

Keep going for the video. My favorite was the slice the straw portion of the contest.

Thanks to Davey, who agrees there should be way more knife swinging competitions across the globe.

    They have knife olympics in the US. You don't have to go all the way to Thailand to do impressive things with custom knive. Granted, you probably have to own your own custom knife.

    And that test says absolutely nothing about the raw cutting power of any sharp object.

    AAAANNNNDDDD, it's still sharp enough to slice through a tomato. Your's now for the low, low price of $19.95

    BUT WAIT, there's more!

  • GeneralDisorder

    I feel like a chip off the cutting edge of that knife would be $19.95. Like... a tiny flake that broke off from a notable impact?

  • Bling Nye

    I had some cutting jokes prepared, honed with sharp wit and edgy commentary, all very piercing stuff, but I slashed it all out because any way you slice it, knife guys finish last.

  • Draco Basileus

    Get to the point already...

  • Bling Nye

    Being so cleaver is too much to handle sometimes, I know.

  • WhiteEagle2

    I like how he only gave .025 shits about the horizontal air slice ones.

  • Bling Nye

    If anyone's wondering, the conversion rate is 0.025 shits = 1 shart.
