Catching knives in mid-air requires zero skill.

If you want to get all fancy about it and start intentionally catching them with your hands without getting cut, then you'll need some practice.

^^ Obviously commented having read the post fully and understanding it....
If I threw you a tennis ball you'd catch it right? Same with a knife except hopefully it'd fuck you up a bit....

During the first throw u can see the knife in flight go accross the black in the background. But the second throw you do not see it. I think its slight of hand.

Let me spell it out for you just to ruin the effect.

Knives, being the the sharp, pointy things they are, are able to embed themselves in most soft objects. Therefore to catch a flying knife would simply require you to stand in it's path and let it hit you.

That part in itself would require no skill but plenty of stupidity or a distinct lack of a will to live. Clear enough for you now?

it is slight of hand...watch the thrower the second time, u can see the glisten of the knife near his thigh....i'm trying to figure out where the knife homeboy "caught" came from

notice on the first throw you dont hear the knife except when it hits the board. On the second through you hear it "whooshing" through the air
