Handle with care! This incisive survey of the cutting-edge of cutting edges will give you a new appreciation for slicing tech (and maybe a few nicks in the bargain!)
- The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.
- From samurai swords to plasma cutters, discover the sharpest tools in the shed.
- For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.
Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.
They slice, they dice, they shred refrigerators like butter!
From precision instruments capable of slicing material only microns thick to monster blades that make confetti out of household appliances, MODERN MARVELS takes a cutting-edge look at the most amazing blades in the world.
Wield a legendary samurai sword, the ancient weapon with an edge keen enough to sever an enemy's arm with a single blow. Stand back as an industrial shredder minces sofas, fridges and anything else thrown its way. And throw the switch on astonishingly precise and powerful plasma and laser cutters.
No matter how you slice it, WORLD'S SHARPEST is a great addition to your DVD library.
