Rocket Knife Attacks Food At 150 MPH [Video]

Inspired by the MythBusters rocket sled, YouTuber “The Backyard Scientist” created a rocket-powered knife that was able to perfectly bisect a chicken, a roast steak… and a toy car.

The project, which lands firmly in the “don’t try this at home” category, employs an old kitchen knife mounted to an aluminum base that is propelled down a graphite-coated track toward its intended target.

The resulting video captures its effectiveness in glorious slow motion, while also revealing some of the painful consequences of such a dangerous experiment.
