OK, obviously it's faked, but I don't right off see how. Camera cuts?

It's cool despite fakeness.

This series caters perfectly to my attention span.

Funny indeed.

I would assume that the knives are already in the ping pong paddles (it is easy to black out the points sticking out with post-editing). She flips them around, and, presto! knives in the paddles!

The ping pong ball already in the mouth that you push forward at the right time is an old trick.

At 0:17, as she's moving her left arm across her body to catch the second knife, if you pause at just the right moment, you can see a knife already in the paddle, and also the blurry knife in the air in front of the bench.

Very cool! And I struggle to imagine my reaction if it wasn't "fake".

you can see a knife already in the paddle

How do you explain that at 0:21 the paddles are turned sideways, and you can see the knives sticking right through out to the other side?

Woodblock: this is at least two separate videos combined into one.

This is like when my 2.5 year old comes into the room with her lab coat and stethoscope and starts doctoring her stuffed bear.

"Are you a doctor?"

"No! I'm just pretending to be a doctor."

It is the fabulous acting that sells the gag.

That, and the video editing.

And the name of the submitter pleasantly corresponds to the country of origin of the videos.
Bravo!
I imagine that this is what Salvador Dali would have done on youtube.
