Nicely done! Looks like that bottle didn't cause you any issues with the thrust.

There wasn't much ease in getting this video made. My cutting stand was absolutely frozen to the ground, and getting it out necessitated significant material trauma to it. The first take was flawless and clean, but undocumented as my battery died just as I began. After changing batteries, the same happened on the second take. Third time and all that I guess...

Thanks! Yes, you nailed it, it's a Vassal. I figured why not make as wide a hole as possible?

Lovely work. Your cutting is always so smooth. Morbid curiosity warrants that I ask, how many Albion’s do you own?

Well thank you, I guess all those years spent slapping water in a bucket weren't wasted after all!
As to your question... more than four.

I think your right, if you zoom in on the frame before the cut you can just about see the line where the bottle is cut already, shame really :P

A study in simple mechanics for my challenge. The big learning tool with bottle cutting is primarily about edge alignment IMO. The rule is simple. A straight drawing slice and the bottle must be completely severed in two. No rearing back just pull the sword through the target. Forgive the kilt, we’re training for the highland games here today lol.
