    • John Whitehouse dude, this is made of literal plasma lol. That’s kinda a lot cooler than a retractable blade. A long length plasma cutter is almost the definition of a light saber, and its 4000 degrees. It’s not hacksmith’s fault that Star Wars lets light clash with other light, he’s made it the only possible that it could be made lol.

  • La gente no se conforma con nada. Cuando hicieron un sable láser que puede chocar con otro sable láser, dicen que "es solo un cuchillo caliente glorificado". Y ahora que hicieron un sable láser, de plasma, dicen que "es un lanzallamas", se quejan de que no pueden chocar dos "hojas", y de que no "corta" la carne como en las películas. No creo que el trabajo de Hacksmith sea perfecto, pero déjense de joder Pd: dale no me gusta a este comentario si sabes español

  • The alt fire mode every flamethrower wishes it had. I think it's terrifying to think about how defenseless you would be if someone else had one though... I also wonder if because the flame is so controlled, if it could be used to do things more efficiently, like cut trees and trim pipes. I could imagine the gas could be contained enough to have a sort of flat edge. Regardless. Really cool concept. Makes me wonder if honed correctly, it could replace an aquajet or something for cutting things.
