    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.

    Amazing job on the on and off set up, but for real what you call a highly speciallized nozzel is actually a gtt mirage. I was a fan and sorry to do this, but I call complete wookie BS on this whole thing. As a lamp and flame worker this is a bit disrespectful. So in that thought, I run a gtt delta elite and a delta mag, both will melt through your bitch ass mirage "lightsaber" you didn't invent or create shit. Honestly good job on the on/ off swtch and dialed flame chemistry , but in all reality you are feeding people complete bantha fodder poodoo.......and if you'd like I can teach you a better flame chemistry, one where you'll get your "gtt mirage saber " to the full flame potential. Good luck on the next one bud.

    Exactly. A near mass-less flame thrower on a fancy handle. If they build two a saber fight will not be possible. The light sabers will not collide with each other like in the actual movie, because of the lack of mass. Light saber concept is based on concentrated light beams, with an actual mass. Plasma and frame throwing technology will probably not get there.
