Japanese guy’s video of polishing a rusty knife is the most amazing thing you’ll see today


You’re probably thinking, “what’s so special about this video of a guy polishing a rusty knife?” We get it—we thought about that too before watching the video. But it wouldn’t be one of the top videos on YouTube if it wasn’t that good, would it?

Uploaded by Japanese YouTuber Jun on June 19, the video has now garnered more than 4 million views in just 2 days!

In the video, Jun explains that he was in a recycle store when he saw a man selling a rusty traditional Japanese knife. The guy was trying to sell the knife for just 30 Yen (roughly 30 US cents or PhP13.61) to the store owner but was declined so Jun offered to buy it instead.

The guy sold it to him for $3 (ten times of his initial asking price) and Jun felt like he was cheated somehow so he did everything he can to make the rusty knife look brand new. And man, he did not disappoint!

His cat’s reaction in the video is all of us while watching him transform the knife!
