A game requiring sharp senses and a very steady hand. Played by placing one hand flat on a surface such as a table with the fingers splayed widely, and then using the free hand to jab a knife in the empty spaces between the fingers on the table as quickly as possible.
Different patterns are acceptable, though most commonly done from one side of the hand to the other and back again.
Often played under circumstances of extreme drunkeness, boredom, or both.
