The sword versus the gun

The producers of a Japanese TV show took a top-quality samurai sword made by a master swordsmith to the U.S. to see whether it could withstand being shot with a bullet. Will the sword prevail, or will it be snapped in two? See the slow-motion results for yourself below.

Sorry, there are no English subtitles. Also, if playback is jerky, press STOP and wait for the entire file to download, then press PLAY again.
