Unbelievable: almost everything can be cut in half with simple…water!

Water is really a unique substance since it can be applied in many areas of life and industry. But have you known that it can be used in cutting things? Watch the videos to find proof!


The Omax Abrasive company has created a special channel on Youtube. There they demonstrate how various things can be cut with water. This method is called water jet cutting. A jet of water under high pressure and with high speed can cut things of almost any density and quality. Interestingly, the similar process exists in nature though it usually takes a lot of time. We know it as erosion.

The videos serve to advertise the company’s equipment for cutting, but they appeared to be very hypnotizing. The subscribers of the channel look forward to new objects being cut in half.

Recently, the creators of the channel have cut a notebook. Looks impressive!

They cut a "Sneeker" in half...Not a "Snicker"! A "Snicker" is a Candy Bar, not a Shoe! :/

I can believe it. I was rinsing my car at the DIY car wash when I had a brain fart and by accident I put my hand in front of where I was rinsing to remove a spot on the car and the water pressure ripped my skin right off. It took no more that 1 or 2 seconds.

Little bit of a misnomer here as the waterjet that cut these objects would have to have an abrasive in it to get these cuts done. A straight waterjet can only cut foam, light rubber and other really soft materials.

I've known about water's power for quite some time. I was not aware someone had applied the principles, but I knew it wouldn't be long....Niagra Falls has been wearing down rocks for centuries....a little more pressure and you can cut anything.....
