Gotta have the right technique. For swords like katanas you need to use the wrist to keep even pressure with the strike so that the blade once cleaved into the medium gets drawn like a saw forwards or backwards ( depending on the strike used) to slice the object in half. Ie watch any samurai sword I. Slow motion when it's cutting something and you'll see the wrist apply pressure to make sure the sword drags across the cut.
Also the angle of the lads is very important. Have to make sure you're hitting straight on to the surface. The angle used will have to coincide with the angle of the surface to be cut.

Yeah, I read somewhere long ago that they would try out katanas on prisoners, and that they would discard them if they couldn't cut through x amount of bodies.
Awesome video, boys will be boys..

I tried to cut my basketball in half with my sword. It bounced back and popped me in the forehead. When they say dont try this at home they mean it.
