Man Forges Impressively Functional Knife From Ice And Polyester Fiber

May 15, 2018


This is a video of Japanese knife forging enthusiast and Youtuber Kiwami Japan creating an impressively durable chef's knife out of ice filled with polyester fiber (previously: his knives forged from plastic wrap, aluminum foil and dried, fermented fish). Who knew adding a little polyester fluff to ice made it so much stronger? Obviously, I'm going to start using polyester ice in all my cocktails. "Dammit, GW, there's fuzz in my drink." JUST CHUG IT. It's not like I washed my hands between going to the bathroom and making it for you anyways. Now -- are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Stab someone, then let the murder weapon melt into a puddle of water and polyester fiber -- the perfect crime!" Yep, that's it. That's 100% exactly what I was thinking too. Now if you'll excuse me....Hello, Batman?

Keep going for the video. Also, some worthwhile demonstrations of how much tougher polyester ice is than regular ice from 2:00 - 3:30. Don't say I never did anything for you. "You haven't." And I won't.

Thanks to Floyd, who is hands down in the running for what I'd name a son, or a newly adopted dog.

    If you're making a weapon that self-destructs don't go with the knife. Make a pykrete (or whatever this synthetic abomination is called) club that you can easily wield and leave behind. On the other hand if you make a pykrete club and anyone knows you did that you'll be the suspect. I guess you have to use the club, take it with you, then drop it in a furnace or firepit or something. If you're already planning on having to melt something in a hurry you could just build a forge/foundry and melt down whatever gun you use to shoot whoever you need to shoot.

    I do not advocate for violence. I do advocate for innovative weapons though. That's cool as all frig.

    Not so impressed with the bottle stabbing.

    But can it be used to cut the cheese?

    If I'm ever trapped in a post-apocalytic nightmare, I want a number of Japanese people along. We'll have 14 types of knives sorted out and made from literally anything on hand.

    And very smooth, highly polished balls.

    (i have that already)

    I'm just saying what we're all thinking: what about a knife forged from FIRSTS?

  • GeneralDisorder

    Gonna guess it'd be dull. But it's okay. Keep collecting. They'll be useful for something else.
