Check Out How Ridiculously Sharp This Knife Is

Video: There’s something really satisfying in seeing a super sharp knife just slice through things without any effort whatsoever. Here’s one just sliding through a tomato and chopping it up into the thinnest slices imaginable. There’s no resistance! It ends up being like tomato silk.

A Chinese Chef's Knife Is Really Impressive

Video: This video shows off the versatility of a Chinese chef’s knife, also known as a Chinese cleaver. For a big hunk of metal that looks at home in a butcher shop, the cleaver can actually handle precise tasks as well. From cutting meat and butchering chicken to finely slicing vegetables and tofu to even making designs with cuts, the Chinese chef’s knife is a very useful tool for the kitchen.

Clever Magnetic Stickers Turn Any Flat Surface Into A Knife Holder

It’s a good idea to keep your best kitchen knives outside of the drawer, where they can get knocked about and damaged, but a dedicated knife block also takes up valuable counter space. An even better solution than both is to turn any flat surface in your kitchen into a magnetic knife holder using these vinyl decals.

This Real Life Version Of The Hidden Blade And Rope Launcher In Assassins' Creed is Awesome

Video: Mad genius Colin Furze did it. He made one of the coolest video game weapons — that would be the hidden blade and rope launcher in Assassin’s Creed — a reality. It works just as advertised! You can shoot out the grappling hook and then retract the rope to lift yourself up and over walls and buildings (though because this is real life, you need to loop in a harness of sorts). And the hidden blade just pops out and in with the flick of the wrist and is ready for you to slice the hell out of things.

Watch This Cool First Person View Of Hand Making A Knife

Video: Here’s a really cool video showing the daily routine of Chelsea Miller, a knife maker. It’s fun because it’s filmed from her perspective so you get to see what it really takes. Fiercely Curious, who made the video, writes, “Chelsea Miller hand makes stunning knives out of old horse rasp files. She often uses maple from her family’s orchard in Vermont and will bury it in the snow to spalt the wood into beautiful patterns for her handles.”

The Spectacular Process Of How The Best Chef's Knife In The World Is Made

Made of stacked melted meteorite that looks more like Thor’s hammer and armed with the encyclopaedic knowledge of knives and stunning skill from bladesmith Bob Kramer, these chef Kramer knives are among the finest in the world. This video of him, by Anthony Bourdain’s Raw Craft, features his process and it might be the most impressive knife making video I’ve ever seen.

Watching This Knife Get Sharpened Sent Satisfying Tingles Up My Spine

It’s unfair. Something so simple and basic should not be able to leave a lasting impact on me like this. The act of sharpening a knife, though absolutely a skill, is a chore of maintenance, not something that can be this satisfying to watch. But just take in this video below, hear the knife on the whetstone, see the spray of the water bottle and never feel about a dull knife the same again.

The World's Best Swiss Army Knife Is Also The Most Ridiculous

The disarmingly-titled “Multiblade Folding Knife” has to be seen to be believed. You might be proud of your adorable Victorinox, but it has nothing on this monstrosity, manufactured in Germany, sometime around 1880.

Making A Super-Sharp Knife From An Old Spanner

One of my favourite things in the world is to watch blacksmiths take old tools and repurpose them into beautiful knives. This particular work from Trollskyy is especially cool because the blade just bleeds into the spanner.

Making A Meat Cleaver From A Circular Saw Blade

Video: John Heisz is an absolute master at repurposing old things into awesome and beautiful knives and tools. Here he is carving a meat cleaver from an old circular saw blade. The blade on blade cutting action is spectacular, the sanding of the knife is always fun to see and the making of the handle is way more complicated than I thought.
