Ok so is there a clever metallurgist in here who can shed some light on exactly what the actual f is happening here?
Not a metallurgist, but my guess would be that the glue holding the blade to the handle boiled. As it boiled the pressure inside the handle increased, pushing the blade out. Once the blade was fully out, the boiling glue with all the extra gunk got pooped out.
Edit: Great! My most upvoted comment ever is about knife poop lol
Material scientist here. From the video, it looks like you're spot on except I doubt the gas came from boiling. More likely it was released by the resin/glue as it was heated and degraded.
When I did casting my cheapskate boss would buy old silver forks and knives to melt down when I needed to cast silver …..learned the hard way knives sometimeshave pitch in the handles for filler….had a small crucible explode on me once….lesson learned
Wow this blew up today….made me realize how much I miss melting things
Tbh its not a bad way to get metal as long as you don't need your chemistry to be super tight. I assume you've found a solution for those little resin based pipe bombs, but I'd recommend just cutting the handles in half.
Also as long as that is sold silverware you're fine, but plated products are going to run the risk of high lead content.
He would buy silver cutlery at antique shops because it was cheaper than buying pure silver pellets….I wasn’t making jewelry to sell so purity wasn’t the issue… started using the bolt cutters to check knife handles first before I’d melt something in the centrifuge….old old stuff has pitch/tar in it…. Newer stuff had plaster which would just float off with the flux
You use a centrifuge to melt things?
He means a spin casting machine. Some, like mine, and likely his, have integrated crucibles and are electrically heated.
I've only known them as rotocasters
A crucible for refining enriched silverium for use in nuclear blingallurgy.
too lazy to google whether blingallurgy is a real thing or a joke…
Neither silverium nor blingallurgy is a thing, saved you a search
Actually just googled it, silverium is a thing, but I have no clue what it is. According to google, a "blackened silver" whatever that means I dont know
So not a centrifuge?
Why not both? There are centrifugal casting machines that utilize centrifugal crucibles. I don't know how they work, but they're out there.
Quantum physicist here, this only happened because the knife was being observed thus the wave function collapsed...
Watcher of movies here, it's more likely that this happened to the knife because our protagonist believed it would.
Game developer here. The knife behaved that way because of a bug in the engine. We will fix it in an update but then the blade will sometimes clip through walls.
High schooler here, it seems like knife had a powerful mithocondria which caused more energy than what the handle could handle :D
Dumb person here, The knife sharted it's pants.
Knife here, I feel better nw
Knife handle here, thank fuck he's gone
Actual Game developer here: "our explanation will unfortunately be delayed to Q2 2022. We want to ensure the highest quality product to our fans."
Knifeologist here, this only happened because a Cthulhu was trapped inside the knife's handle after a bout with Merlin some years ago.
If only you hadn't spell physicist. 🤔
They asked me if I knew theoretical physics, I told them I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.
Adding what should be the obvious why. The Handle is silver while the knife is steel. They are most likely repurposing the silver.
Isn't that what boiling is, though?
Boiling refers to a state change from liquid to gas. The gas in this case is likely from the decomposition of the resin.
Point of order: The piece of metal that extends from the blade into the grip is called the "tang."
Do with that knowledge what you will.
Everyone knows Tang is astronaut orange drink![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)
That tang is gooey
This is nonsense! Anyone can see that this knife shat itself from being burned to death!!
Hey guys, this appears to be an older sterling silver knife. It was common to affix the handle to the knife using Rosin, basically pine tree pitch with other additives to hold the handle onto the tang, the rosin not only holds it in place like glue, it also takes up the voids to ensure that the handle isn't lose.
What you're seeing here is the torch heating the rosin within the handle past the boiling point, the rosin creates gas, the pressure ejects the knife and tang out of the handle. The bubbling goop that blobs out at the end is the boiling rosin, once it hits air / lower atmosphere, it greatly expands as it is no longer under pressure in the handle.
**edit: not a metallurgist, just really into tools and knifemaking / restoration.**
The knife took a shit
It's actually to do with the resin/glue holding the handle onto the blade
When it heated up it melted and either the water in it boiled or something in it decided to change careers and become a foaming agent increasing the internal pressure and causing it to turn into a burnt resin foam
Are you serious? Right in front of my salad?
U never take a shit in ur salad and eat it? U still gonna eat that salad? Lmao
Poop knife 2.0

I'm sorry Jon.
poop knife 2.oh yeah 😎
I’ve heard of a toe knife but never a poop knife
*we got a botched toe, pass me some trash to plug it!*
Pusses up and in 3 days, good as new!
Oh god OH MAN
OH MAN OH GOD OH MAN
Respects need to be paid to the OG.
Someone is really profiting off of this.....
The universe is wild

Keep in Touch
It's pretty damn smart, if you ask me. People love feeling like part of an inside joke.
I love inside jokes. I hope to be a part of one some day.
I...uh...well...I'll just see myself out thanks.
I had no idea he’d gone ahead and made something of his fame! Amazing!
What a time to be alive.

[Cosmic Knife superheated](https://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/Cosmic_knife_super-heated)
My family poops big. Maybe it's genetic, maybe it's our diet, but everyone births giant logs of crap. If anyone has laid a mega-poop, you know that sometimes it won't flush. It lays across the hole in the bottom of the bowl and the vortex of draining water merely gives it a spin as it mocks you. Growing up, this was a common enough occurrence that our family had a poop knife. It was an old rusty kitchen knife that hung on a nail in the laundry room, only to be used for that purpose. It was normal to walk through the hallway and have someone call out "hey, can you get me the poop knife"? I thought it was standard kit. You have your plunger, your toilet brush, and your poop knife. Fast forward to 22. It's been a day or two between poops and I'm over at my friend's house. My friend was the local dealer and always had 'guests' over, because you can't buy weed without sitting on your ass and sampling it for an hour. I excuse myself and lay a gigantic turd. I look down and see that it's a sideways one, so I crack the door and call out for my friend. He arrives and I ask him for his poop knife. "My what?" Your poop knife, I say. I need to use it. Please. "Wtf is a poop knife?" Obviously he has one, but maybe he calls it by a more delicate name. A fecal cleaver? A Dung divider? A guano glaive? I explain what it is I want and why I want it. He starts giggling. Then laughing. Then lots of people start laughing. It turns out, the music stopped and everyone heard my pleas through the door. It also turns out that none of them had poop knives, it was just my fucked up family with their fucked up bowels. FML. I told this to my wife last night, who was amused and horrified at the same time. It turns out that she did not know what a poop knife was and had been using the old rusty knife hanging in the utility closet as a basic utility knife. Thankfully she didn't cook with it, but used it to open Amazon boxes. She will be getting her own utility knife now.
That is the best story I've read all day. Thank you for that.
It's not the commentor's. It's actually a legendary Reddit story that makes it's round once a month.
Has it's place at r/museumofreddit
Its not my story, i just spread the word of the poopknife.
Where is Poop knife 1.0
Not me trying not to laugh with my boyfriend sleeping in the bed next to me.
Good luck with that!
I remember reading that post and nearly dying from laughter. Thanks for this!!
2.0? This is the original poop knife upon closer inspection.
Bum guns for the win.
Paper is just for drying only.
If you need a poop knife, it's gone too far.
It's the three seashells of the modern-day.
Yeah what’s up?
Onesome else can go ahead and shotscreen for the redditsub
I pressed the notification confused since I forgot I commented this hahah was thinking about ‘onesome’ a different way
Shall we turn this onesome into a twosome? 😏😏
When it cools back down, will it suck all of that back in?
Here is your gif!

Anduril, Flame of the West, forged from the shards of Narsil.
The man who can wield the power of this sword can summon to him an army more deadly than any that walks this earth. Put aside the ranger. Become who you were born to be. Take the Dimholt Road.

This happens when she said “wrong hole” and you pull out to something squishy
I felt that..
This makes me physically uncomfortable
Jesus Christ. 🤮
Thanks, I hate it
Take my upvote and fuck off
Do you take your poop back in?
When it's this soft?
Did I stuttered?
Upvote this if you would eat that stuff & save a little bit to shove up your ass as well.
I thought it was the after birth
Kind of an oaky afterbirth
The irony isn’t lost
I know 😔 couldn’t be helped
Thanks to this link, I ironically found
I hate that I love you
That's also an acceptable explanation, yet cursed
Do you eat the placenta?
No, the hospital wouldn’t let me grill it outside last time
They heated the knife to the point that the glue/resin holding the blade to the silver handle melted and the water contained in it boiled foaming said glue/resin.
It pooped. Got it.
More like volcano diarrhea
Amazing punk band name right there
Straight to the point.
It’s not as amazing when you explain how it happened
Maybe, but it's less disgusting
He just assumed it was glue/resin, it could also be some entirely different substance.
Yeah it could be poop
Knife go poopy. There, happy?
Everybody is cool with the Poop Knife, but the second there’s Knife Poop, everyone loses their minds.
See, Jurf gets it!
Oh dear, I had forgotten about the poop knife. Now I'll have to work hard on forgetting it again.
Exactly this. I saw it on the TV show Repair Shop. Instead of using solid silver, they use super thin silver and put resin or pitch in it.
Wasn’t it mainly the fact that heat was causing the glue to expand creating pressure?
How do you delete someone else’s post?
This one got me
Your post got deleted by someone else?
Sarcasm on Reddit doesn’t always land I see lol
I’m pretty sure he meant he wants to delete their post
Spend years sucking up to the group admin and hope they make you a moderator
Divide by zero
No, that would just make it an infinite post
multiply by zero
when u think it can't get any worse it shits its pants
Lol. Your comment made watching that - whatever that was - almost with it.
Do you mean "almost worth it"?
Dammit. Yes. Sorry about that. Lol
Why did you show me this in front of my good eyes?
Do you keep your bad eyes nearby?
Lemme take my glasses off and you can use my bad eyes if you want
At a guess.. the apoxy/glue inside gets heated up, liquifies, and begins expanding. This expansion pushes the blade out of the handle. At the end when the pressure in the handle is released by the blade being expelled, the adhesive can expand much faster and it comes out in that disturbing manner.
This is disturbing
Wasn’t expecting a poop at the end
My morning after mixing beer and vodka
Stick to weed toker.
I can now say I have seen metal shit.
Makes me wanna toss my knives
This is actually an ancient warrior technique called Poop Knife: the knife is used to first stab your opponent and then you turn the blade and use the hilt to rub doo doo in the cut. This infection strategy is one of the oldest types of biological warfare and last used out side of jail on the battle field in Vietnam war.
I saw this before. The knife got infected by a parasite that burrows into it's body and controls it brain seeking a safe place while it eats the knife from the inside. The knife is just a zombie at this point and the heat makes the parasite want to escape. Nature can be a cruel mistress 😔 terrible way to go. Poor knife
"Browse a bit of Reddit before bed" my brain said...
Did I just watch a knife take a shit?
so thats how knives are born now i’m glad babies take another hole
How do you tag that bot that reverses things?
someone had done it in a separate comment. tbh i don't know which version was more disturbing for me lol
Belongs on r/popping
Definitely a horcrux
I literally just watched a How it's Made where they make almost this exact knife: [video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0ZXcfrUzGo)
He is lucky that it didnt explode. That filling material was expanding and had nowhere to go. And heat maked metal weaker.
Is that the poop knife everyone talking about?
Did they seal it with shit?
This makes me uncomfortable.
Man can only imagine what sound comes with the squirting
This is so interesti... Hol' up!
Weird for me. Stretched all the way and then pooped! The knife I mean
i look at my knives with disgust now
Me after eating any spicy food
Every damn morning
Ohhhh fuck it’s POOP KNIFE!!!! I haven’t seen this vid in forever. Also would like to add I remember reading something on Reddit ages ago about a guy who kept a knife in his bathroom to cut his turds. He had a girlfriend and she asked about it and he said you didn’t have one growing up? Dude growing up had a knife his parents and all the family members used to cut big turds,he thought it was normal once he moved out and on his own.
Knife didn't shit in years
Reminds me of the evening of Taco Tuesday
I,ve seen enough of internet
That was so hot
That looks really disgusting
Me when your mom
