Tameshigiri 試切.
Tameshigiri is the art of testing Japanese swords. From the period of the Kingdoms to the beginning of the Edo period, cutting tests were carried out in various places for the purpose of training in martial arts and especially a verification of the performance of the blades. Nowadays, cutting tests are done on tatami-Omotes made of rice straw or reed straw, sometimes both by including a bamboo stalk in the Tatami, to reproduce the texture of a human limb.
