July 11, 2012 - Grand Master Joe Sanders sliced 113 club soda bottles with a 32-inch steel Japanese Tatchi sword on July 7.

He completed the task on Washington Street in 26.52 seconds. Afterward, he was soaked in club soda.

"I was blind after cutting the first bottles. It sure was fun," Sanders said.

During the demonstration, club soda flew into the air and halfway across the street.

The audience gathered at the record-breaking event could find severed soda bottle caps a block away.

Sanders' original plan was to cut 144 bottles, and he intends to take another stab at breaking his own record in August.
