    I gotta believe it's fake, but I'd love to know how it was accomplished.

    Any ideas?

    I dunno . . . if it's sharp enough and he gets a good enough spin on it, I guess it could be possible.

    But at the same time, I'm skeptical of pretty much everything. My gramma always told me to believe none of what I hear and half of what I see. :p

    He hit the mark the guy made using the blue tool (forgot what you call it), first time, from 15' away.

    I seriously doubt throwing the blade like that would cause sparks, much less do anything besides bounce right off the wood.

    It's not sparks. It's sawdust and there are hundreds of comments on Youtube discussing the validity of the video.

    Can't people just enjoy some nice special effects? ;)

    Not sure how it was made though.

    My guess is the wood was pre-sawed to the most shallow depth possible (or sawed completely and then wood-glued back in place)

    The cut in the wood was prepacked with sawdust (and possibly talcum powder).

    The saw blade is genuinely thrown (you can tell that from the safety glove the main actor is wearing)

    It strikes the extremely fragile and exposed section of the 2x4 "sawing" it in half.

    The sawdust is scattered in a lifelike fashion.

    Actors move over and pick up the sawed section which can be cleanly seen to have a smooth finish to it.

    Nice video though. I like it.

    A Pencil?

    :lol:


    Maybe it was balsa wood? You could easily throw a saw blade though that...
    (Or precut, like Cooler King was saying)

    Balsa Wood. Hmmm never thought of that. Could be.

    Or.. in Tae Kwon Do most of the wood for breaking is pre baked to ensure that it will break under impact. Could be used here but I doubt it.

    I think either softer wood like o|||o suggests or would that has been prepared in some way to make it easier to break.
