To celebrate the release of Fallout4, I built what I always thought was the coolest weapon in the game. It is a flaming sword called a shishkebab.
The new game has a newer sleeker version of the sword that I thought looked sooo sexy, so I set out to build one that not only looked like the one in the game, but actually worked.

The sword in action!
Step 1: I got a katana and started with brainstorming
Step 2: Mounted a motorcycle handle to make the fuel spread
Step 3: Wired it to the back of butane canister
Step 4: Mounted a copper tubing to distribute the flames across the blade
Step 5: We painted it to look like concept art we found online
Step 6: Testing Shiskebab on Roger
It worked perfectly!
