Sometimes the samurai sword is faster than a blink of an eye, as is seen in this video where a highly trained samurai splits a speeding baseball in half.

A samurai was invited to a batting cage to see if he could split a baseball in half with a samurai sword and the result is truly incredible.

The samurai at first just waits for a couple of baseballs being shot out of a pitching machine before he accurately pulls his samurai sword out of it’s sheath before perfectly slicing the pitched baseball traveling at over 160 mph. The video is dramatically slowed down towards the 2:07 mark so that we can actually see him split the baseball in half.
The result is an impressive sight that must be seen to believe.
