Air Pellet Vs Knife In Super Slow Motion

Josh Welch

Pellet being fired at a knife bladeOnce again Gav and Dan of The Slow Mo Guys are pointing their slow motion cameras towards an object being shot with their trusty air pistol. 

The object being shot in this episode happens to be a very sharp knife that was sent to the guys to try out. 

The decision was made to try and see if they could shoot a lead pellet at the knife blade, splitting the pellet in two, then have the two pieces pop two nearby balloons. 

For this particular video they used the Phantom V2511 camera shooting between 28,500 fps (frames per second) and 118,000 fps. 

Check out the video below to see if they had any luck and then leave a comment to let me know what you thought!
