That video is rapidly becoming a legend. It's a couple years old now, but it emphasizes the problems and danger of cheap wallhangers.

This computer I'm using has a really dark screen(and it's on the lightest setting) and I couldn't see. Did the blade fall off and hit him?

if it's a practice katana... that means it isn't sharp.

So did he get nailed by the tip of the blade (the only remotely sharp part)

Or the dull edge? Anyway it did look like there was a bit of acting on his part.

An even better question would be if anyone bought these swords after watching this commercial

That was not a practice katana. It was a cheap wallhanger. And yes it broke near the handle, the tip coming back around to stab him in the gut.

Nobody seems to no for sure. Pretty sure he was not seriously injured.

It wasn't a paul chen katana either despite what the title of the video was. Just goes to show wallhangers should cut nothing but pool noodles and air.
