We’ve all heard the old guns vs. swords debate, but how would it actually play out?

Don’t bring a sword to a gunfight, or should you? Supposedly there are swords out there that are sharp enough to cut a speeding bullet in half. Not only would this feat keep you from being injured or killed, but may just be so shocking to your opponent that they will lay down arms and retreat.

But in a guns vs. swords battle, how would things really play out? Would the sword be able to actually cut a bullet or would it just deflect off to the side. Check out the video below to find out.

That clears things up completely right? I guess not. Now we know that in a guns vs. swords battle that the sword is capable of actually splitting a speeding bullet in half.

But that was proven in a very scientific way. Would a swordsman actually be able to perform the same feat and get the sword in the exact center of the bullet to repeat this feat? Much less likely.
