The magazine was of higher density roll, more difficult to cut than normal newspapers roll. And the broomstick.... well.. nevermind.

Record breaking 4.75" diameter newspapers roll cut! I did it at night so no video taken. I took photos afterwards.

This is the video of my latest test cut on newspapers roll with Deva Slayer, including a roll with 4.5" diameter. Enjoy!

Nice cutting. That sword you used is a real cleaver!

Thanks a lot! It takes a lot of skill against newspaper rolls. Some of my friends who cut tatami omote regularly in dojo, bent their sword every time on a 2" newspapers roll.

Nice! Newspapers is something I have yet to try. How long do you soak them?

15 mins and no need to wait to dry. See how it compares to your other cutting medium. To me it's a challenge.

My French friend Jean-Luc Ancelin visited Hong Kong today and after the sparring sessions, I prepared him 3 rolls of newspapers to test cut with. I lent him the Windlass 15th Century longsword and he worked through 1", 2" and 2.5" newspapers rolls beautifully.

I was practicing my left handed horizontal cut in the video. The first target was a newspapers roll around 2.5" diameter. The next one was a real estate magazine that was very dense and difficult to cut.

I was letting a friend who claimed to study kenjutsu from unknown master to test cut on a 3.25" diameter newspapers roll. Then I finished it when he failed to do so. :P

We have sparring videos to follow up.
