I find one of most useful

I find one of most useful things I carry each day is my ice pick. I began to modify them: to make them more sexy and also to cover the sharp point till i need to use it.

Enjoy! Happy Holidays!

Alguien sabe este cual es este metal dorado?

It's all about the finishing details... :)


if I had access to a metal lathe and octagonal brass rod, I'd make one of these myself. Alas, I do lot. I'll have to see what I can improvise...

hey DiResta i'm a big fan of all your videos. anyway i was wondering if you could send me one of these ice picks because i think they're really cool. i would make one myself but i don't have any of the tools to make something like this, (or the skill).
I hope you see this. Have a merry christmas! - Tom


Hello Jimmy,
I really enjoy watching your videos. I have Sub and thumbs up.
You can do the same as well on my channel.
Please take your time and stop by and watch some of my videos as well.
Good job.

Just right for zombie melee. Jokes aside, this looks really cool.


Yeah, good sound effects

Matt Chilton

that was the best looking ice pick i've seen, and that was the best way i've ever seen for someone to cut rope.


WOW, if only I had the stuff.

+jimmydiresta fo you know the exact name for that disc sander at 2:00? I recently got something similar at a garage sale and I've been wondering about it's true intended purpose as it seems slow and weak for metal.

Neves B

Whats the first?

jonathan Mazin

I love how he just used the axe to cut that lol


Too cool for words.


Quick tip, when sanding something round, suck as an Ice pick, dowel, etc, chuck it up in a drill and sand it with a piece of sand paper while spinning it.

Nathan best

I really enjoyed this one. I recognized the metal lathe, I own one identical. Dad bought it from a local community college 20 something years ago, it originally was aboard a battleship. Would love to see more videos of you you using it.


yes i do use the same .. it good for simple stuff like this thank you !

joe brown

where can I Buy one ?

John Booster



1:54 Incredibly satisfying noise.


i want to buy that


Awesome video! very cool, but what would be the use of this? picking ice? why would you want to pick ice? did the ice make you mad? xD
Could be usefull as a leather working tool

Arthur Rock

No! Ice picks were used for lobotomies! Ice picks bad!

guys want weapon did you carry everyday???knife?gun?ice pick?
for I prefer ice pick for self defense more than knife or a gun...ice pick is very very easy to conceal...I made mine from a wielding rod

Cal Zackary

did he not put diresta on something he made. MIND EXPLODES

Genxane Official

I watching this in 2020 for no reason


1:55 lol


Please answer me the following question:
Why is he so hyped?
(I mean that in a very nice way, i like his videos too, but i try to understand, what makes him so special, so i can adapt to my own channel to grow) I am very curious to hear YOUR opinion on why YOU watch his Videos.


look in my movies for that book i made a vid on it ! last year.. Thank you !!!!


thank you again ray !!

Dara Ea

The rope cutting part was classic..


Here's a challenge for Diresta fans: put videos in a random order and put them in the correct order in which they were published based on projects that are in other videos.


How long is the "blade" on the ice pick?


Lol the sound the grip made, when you took it off from the pick hahahaha


can you make one with a threaded spike?

Sea To Summit

Just stumbled across your videos on Make and now this channel. Safe to say I will be very unproductive at my office today.... You make absolutely inspiring work! I'm in awe of every project I've watched so far (and excited to think about what else I can pull off in my tiny NYC studio apt...) Thank you for sharing!


Whats it used for other than murder?

baby BOssTM

For what ice pick


extremely awesome!! but it doesn't have your name on it...


that hatchet looks familiar...


Not sure if you can carry that on the street.......looks mean.
Can you still buy blocks of ice?

oli pas


Mark Speir

This is great when you pick someone in the back of the neck during a mob hit (Jimmy "The Ice Man" DiResta :p), but not so much when breaking up clumps of ice.

214ladybug Adams

Dude I wanted to buy a Deresta ice pick but it's $60. That's highway robbery. We still love you though great videos!


I'm looking forward to the video where you make a new finger to replace the one you lost stopping the lathe with your hand.


What kind of things do you use the ice pick for?


Very cool icepick man.  Thanks  


I just Subscribed ! All of your videos are awesome I feel exited every time I watch your talents unfold ! If you can please show a video of how you get your name imbedded into that book in the video ?

Ice Pick Grip Knife Defense

One of the scariest types of assault is the ice pick grip knife attack. When you see the quickness of this attack in full speed, it's quite astonishing of how dangerous it can be.

The reason why this attack is so dangerous and why it's so hard to defend against, is because of the power coming in from the attackers' momentum.

If you try to catch the knife from the top, it might be very difficult to accomplish. It's a very difficult move to perform. Instead, you might want to block the arms of the attacker using your forearms to deflect the stab as much as you can.

In this dangerous situation, you also want to use your low kicks to prevent your attacker from getting closer with the knife. As soon as you see that he doubles down, step in immediately to follow up with devastating strikes to the head.

You need to finish the attack by using offense!

We hope that you enjoyed this knife defense tip. Feel free to share the video:

Spend an afternoon behind a derelict building. Make half a years worth of YouTube videos.
Okay, I guess...

Kprz Ckds1119

Actually it is not the knife what is dangerous. It is the man (or woman) holding it, so just like you showed with your legs, you should focus on him. Trapping is also okay, but if I entered I would maybe just beat him. Yeah, I might get stabbed, but getting stabbed while beating him and his intention is backing is a hell lot different than getting stabbed while his intention is to kill you. Great video and keep up the good work!

Ice to the Mf Killa!

Hey nick if l have long hair l have problem in street fight

laty johns



I had a guy ran at my friend with with knife at a BBQ over girls. I ran at the attacker punch him in the face. As he fell down his arm swung out and the knife hit me just above my collarbone. I jumped on him with a full body mount pinned his arms with my legs and started feeding punches. I grabbed the knife and got off him. He got up and ran to his vehicle and took off. This was probably the closest time I ever came to dieing. With the amount t of adrenaline I did not know I was cut and bleeding until my friend told me. The cops showed up and all this guy got was two years probation with house arrest. Got to love Canada's justice system. I'm thinking about joining martial arts but don't know which one to pick thats the most realistic.

Phantom Ghost

excellent video! the best way is a kick in the dick and run like a rabbit


Trotsky should watch this video!


Great video Nick! .I have an idea , you should do a first person perspective simulation or a virtual scenario where us audience can practice our verbal defense or the right timing for a pre-emptive strike . Just a thought, really nice videos, thanks ! :)


your to awesome I can't get enough of this best channel ever stay safe I know you can but I can now but cause of you I can fight now and I got into a fight with a bigger guy Im 5.6 and he 510 and I one cause of you thank you so much for the tips by the headbutt that helped a lot

Dean Miller

Good advice on the kicks vs knife but an arm lock or wrist lock when practiced until perfected is actually a good followup that will work.

Kevin Anzhari

hey, what do you think about wing chun


man, i like the way you keep your fighting style free of bullshit; simple and effective; very educating to watch, thank you.

The Bolt Thrower

Awesome work man, finally an Ice Pick grip knife vid.

Dylan Vip

nick what happened to your subscribers they just vanished

Dave Busink

Lol this is still bs lol #changemymind


Good channel he keeps it realistic ! Keep it up

Lincoln Meredith

Ice picks are just savage


I know I always praise you guys on your videos, but you should especially be commended for this one. Great advice based on a realistic scenario. Videos like this really help save lives. In a super dangerous scenario like this, unless you are an olympic runner and can get away from the attacker, kicking is your best option. It is by no means a guaranteed defense, but in this case it's the only realistic strategy that might bear fruit and get you out of a grave danger.

Real talk bro! Love it!

Do it if a kid was getting attack

Hey Nick quick question should you ever get involved in stopping a fight?? What are your thoughts and opinions about it!! :D

Nate Johnson

Best defense to a knife attack while you are unarmed is to run the fuck away lol.


Knives are 100x scarier than guns imo



although the way he got assassinated was a different version of an icepick i think is the pickaxe version i believe


! Alwayz great knowledge on tha videos, much respect.
