    Really neat how they got all of that to work nicely like they did, but I must admit I am distinctly reminded of Elon Musks “Not a flamethrower”.

    Anyways, hats off to the Hacksmiths. Now, we need a device that can mimic The Force.

  2. $40k lightsaber, gases and chemical salts not included.

  7. I want someone who looks at me the way that reporter looks at that lightsaber.

  8. A worthwhile endeavor fer sure, fer sure.

  9. Its a flamethrower!!!! Its nothing great

  10. So…..we have a blowtorch then?

  11. Not a real light saber just fancy flame thrower with no distance

    • technically you’re correct but he modified the power source so it can burn to a point where it becomes plasma. It’s not a flamethrower, this thing is burning at 4000° and can cut through steel. Flamethrowers can’t do that.

  12. One word


  13. hmmm impressive, however, can I go thru the smokeless flames of a Demon? I think not. HaHaHa! Pea-santts.
