Someone with a decent blade may even slice through a 2x4 as well. There are also some other fun targets to try, but you gotta be careful with some of them.

For example:
  • Balloon (strike with the edge, not the tip)
  • Thick bamboo (this is fairly easy)
  • Glass bottle (slicing it, NOT shattering it)
  • Elastic hooking cord (slice the thick rubber cord)
Forgive my ignorance but do you mean one of your swords will slice through a glass bottle and cut it in two without shattering?? Now that's a serious blade!!
