Will It Kill You? THROWING Knives & Tomahawks vs. GEL/RIBS [GY6 Ballistic Test #30]

“Hey Guys It’s Andrew with GY6vids… ever since I’ve done “how to throw an axe how to throw a knife” vide, Ive getting a lot of requests to do…an ole’ Casually Carl ballistics dummy test… i’m guessing that you all want to know how much penetration you are going to get on say a throwing tomahawk or throwing knife so in this video that’s what we’re gonna be doing… why not alright…Mosin Nagant Bayonet vs Casually Carl Now what a lot of people don’t … understand is ballistics gel isn’t meant to be an exact representation of a target, human flesh, or you know animals flesh…

Its meant to be a go-to analog to do testing to see the penetration of say projectiles in a firearm… or blade in this case! I use the same type of gel, cook the same way, at the same temperature in the same molds every time. So every time i do a test if i compare something later in the future you can compare the results back-to-back-to-back… ballistic Gel is more closely representing dense muscle tissue so when you touch yourself….

You have bones and everything else too in your system…well that’s true and we’re gonna be using pork ribs today… but you also have to realize in your gut and underneath your ribs and just passed your ribs, it’s very gooey and mushy, much less than this! I mean i can take this dmo knife and stick Casually Carl in the head and it bounces right out… but if i were to do that to my stomach or someone else I guarantee you it’s not going to be bouncing out anytime soon…

So keep that in mind when you’re watching the test! If we do get solid penetration and does get a good stick realize if that hit anywhere in your ribs its most likely going to crack easily through ribs and then keep going into the gooey parts of your chest …but getting into the test we’re using today are tomahawks and knives like I said… standard little ebay buyers, I actually like throwing these, they are a lot of fun but they break very easily because it’s cheap metal, then we are going to go to the standard-issue USMC k-bar fighting knife, which is one of my favorite blades ever! the history behind them is amazing so you’ve got to have that in here and I’ve been practicing throwing k-bars for quite some time now …many many years and I’ve got it down! then we get into the DMO Warrior Hawk this thing was custom made for me by DMO knives …you can go into the description of this video anytime and see LINKS to all the websites you need to go to, to buy any one of these things we using today I wanted a good short and compact Throwing tomahawk and that’s what they made…

For me! Then we get into another tomahawk that’s a little higherend and multi-use this is the Outland Equipment.com multi-mission axe… this thing is a tank! it’s made out of s7 tool steel so it’s very hard. Then we’ll move into a tomahawk that’s more traditional you see these type of throwing tomahawks all over the place you can buy these for $40-$50 or so on so… but they’re just plain jane tomahawks… a friend of mine that I hit up and saw that he was doing some seriously good work for Custom Tomahawks designed this one custom for me…

I don’t know if you guys recognize this… this was the same type of vine as Mel Gibson had in “The Patriot” …the last but not least we have also the DMO Breacher… this Breacher I carry on me all the time, when I go backpacking or hiking in the woods… but when you throw it… it’s got some weight so we’ll see what happens if it sticks…Que the high-speed Let’s go! well not horrible but you’re getting only like half inch to an inch maybe of penetration these little things don’t have a lot of weight behind them, and that is probably why! let’s move on to something heavier go into a K-bar so it’s a great blade you can hold it like this this…it is like the fighting style and then you flip it up and throw! Oh! That’s much better! it went to about here but also went further because you can hear it impacting the wood behind you can hear impacting that little thud… It is slightly bent! I’ll have to contact k-bar because these things are NOT supposed to do that! but nice thing is…

You can always bend them back! let’s move on to the DMO Breacher which has got more weight behind it.. it’s shorter obviously but it’s definitely more weight.. it’s not as pointy so we’ll see how that bluntness will affect its penetration… if anything that would hurt like heck just because of the weight so let’s get into that…Let’s throw that K-Bar out of the way…

The kinetic energy of the DMO Breacher is carrying itself in there very hard! You can see it in the high-speed… the jiggle of the whole Gel Block it wasn’t for stopping there… it would probably keep going…DMO has a larger blade called the “Brute” which is much longer, it would be devastating because there’s a lot of weight behind this metal! Let’s get into the Tomahawks that sun is being a pain in the neck and covering up Casually Carl. It’s coming behind a tree well time to pack up all that crap and come back tomorrow… See you tomorrow! welcome to the next day really short for you guys, but a lot of work for us! It’s time to throw the DMO Warrior Hawk at Casually Carl’s chest to see what the damage is….

Alright casually carl Oh!!!! alright well yeah the warrior hawk stuck all the way up until it hit the handle or the base of the blade itself…so it didn’t allow it to go any further kind of stuck right here! you’re looking at a very heavy object impacting you at a very high rate of speed and it’s definitely going to crack ribs and we’re probably going to see that here shortly! I will put this to the side for right now Nice thing about DMO blades, is they are tough as nails you can throw them wherever you want! Let’s get into more traditional now this is that standard tomahawk look you’re used to seeing a little bit longer length then most tomahawks but there are some especially in competitions that are much longer it just requires a little bit different hold different throw different style…

Speed and power so you got to make sure to practice with what you’re going to throw! I happen to throw a lot of different types of stuff so you gotta practice with each one differently… i’m pumped i can’t wait to see this… here we go! Oh, just over his shoulder! let’s just pull that out yeah uh it went clean through his shoulder just hitting a little high….Let’s try a little bit lower… Oh! It actually sliced into the back of the gel where it opened up the back of the gel and impact the cardboard and wood behind it! it Wiggles itself back out but you can still see the temporary wound channel were it originally was until it shifted backwards! You’ll see the high-speed that kind of goes in and then gets wobble back out…

I’m sure you’re going to see the kinetic energy that these tomahawks actually hold incredible amount of power but let’s put the traditional tomahawk to the side and go into another Tomahawk… this one is the Outland Equipment.com multi-mission Axe, this thing has got more weight to it… and it’s made of s7 tool steel… It’s hard to throw because you do have this seat belt cutter at the bottom and it comes off your hand kind of awkwardly alright Casually Carl let’s see what happens… whoo boy here we go… it impacted and you can see the impact point on the cardboard and it’s running up through the head… but it’s once again pushed back out because the gel collapsing on itself and that little air pocket pushing it back out… but it definitely went all the way through an impact on the backside of the gel into the wood into the cardboard…

So let’s get this guy out of there now I know this is all well and fun and you guys are enjoying this! that was… definitely awesome this is probably got the most kinetic energy on impact do to the fact it has got weight and it’s got a big blade! Before we move on… I was thinking about it and in the comments section of the “how to throw a tomahawk/knife” video… I had tons of fans wanting me to do… “can you throw this can you throw that…” pretty much anything with a pointy end on it or sharp end on it… you can throw it! You just need to get used to the…

Rotation and where to hold it properly… if there’s any snagging points on the hand like the end of the k-bar, it’s got a little blunt end on it, and it catches your fingers and they’ll throw your your… throw off so you got to keep that in mind… but like kitchen knives and so on so forth, you can throw them for sure! but.. one of the biggest things I was requested to throw… is well …is the Bayonet off of a… russian mosin nagant… and everyone’s like “can throw a bayonet?”.. Yes i can now! Just had this lying around, and I was like “why not!” alright…Mosin Nagant Bayonet vs Casualty Carl…. Oh… it stuck a little bit and bounced out… let’s try again… here we go!…Oh..in the shoulder! yeah it’s a good weapon for the Zombies …

Little heads spike, or you know… make it out of Wood for the vampires! lol …alright take three! oh well… there goes my table! …This should be it…I think I got it! money! alright moving on… let’s get the ribs. that’s too much fun! …When in doubt use duct tape! we’re starting off with the DMO breacher and then will move into the Tomahawks… all right, here we go… oh definitely through ribs that’s for Sure! holy crap looks like it still went into the Gel and got pushed out like before… four inches of penetration into the gel even after going through the ribs which is pretty impressive! alright both bags are leaking now it’s time to go to the K-Bar… Lets see what this looks like… little more pointy, little bit longer… alright… Oh huh??? alright well it hit slightly over-rotated so I’ll throw it again…it hit like this…rather than hitting like this… So I have to scoot up a little bit… lets see what we can hit! man those ribs are really… there are evasive little boogers! Aghhh I’m going to get it, I’m going to get it! there it is! yeah all the way to the back! it’s right on top of rib at a slight angle going all the way through it…

Through the gel and impacting the backside… because that rib is holding it in place it’s not wiggling back out again. so its staying where it initially impacted which is in the board behind it! So… YES! You do not want to have a knife thrown into your chest… Period! yeah that would hurt! well… it cut down and split three ribs this Rack is hanging off by a thread and it penetrated.. inch and a half to two inches into the gel… kinetic energy alone… that would probably stop your heart! well thanks for watching! Hope you got some information out of it …Aghhh I have to wash this stuff off!
