The basics for this trick is to start hitting the devilstick back and forth doing half flips. Then after a right handstick hit, bring the right handstick over for a backhand hit. After the right backhand, bring the left handstick over for a left backhand. Keep the devilstick going while doing right and left backhand hits. Then to get the chop look, all you need to do is to swing the handstick across and down for the backhand hits. The more exaggerated the swing of the handstick the better the "chop" looks.
