In part 2, we finish the blade cube solve. We also go over the fact that despite some bazaar conformations of the last layer that may resemble parity, this puzzle actually does not display a true parity problem, as no new algorithms are needed to solve the puzzle, just straight supercube strategy.
We talk about the fallacy of false equivocation, which appears like a parity, but is actually just a situation where you are not able to tell the correct orientation of a piece due to its symmetric shape and single color.
Pretty tricky!

The following algorithms can be applied to a standard 3x3 and all 3x3 mods.
Middle edge placing algorithm:
Top to right: U R Ui Ri Ui Fi U F
Top to left: Ui Li U L U F Ui Fi
Top layer edge flipping: U R F Ui Ri Fi
Top layer edge rotation: R U Ri U R 2U Ri
Top layer corner rotation: U R Ui Li U Ri Ui L

Coming up: Some complex 5 layer puzzles, more rubik's 180's, and yes, another epic unboxing!
