Cutting barbed wire?

She mentions notches for cutting barbed wire.  I that design for real, or just an expression?

Could be very real. Helicopters have wire cutters on them, too.

Example from wiki and youtube...the wire has to be under tension, as on a fence.

"A soldier slides the barbed wire into the flash suppressor and simply rotates his rifle around until it snaps the small gauge wire. For thicker wire, the soldier inserts the wire, gives a half turn and fires the rifle, which will snap the wire."

One of the reasons the wire is strung on the loose side. Just like boarding nets, they were never tight for a good reason.

Cool!  It appears the AK-47 is the Swiss army knife of guns.

Uhh... I have slick wire, electric fence wire, and old barbed wire all over our farm, I just use wire clippers. I would definitely amuse my wife getting out a rifle and saying I was going to fix a fence.

And any military uses razor wire now- extraordinarily sharp nasty stuff that is cut from flat sheet.
