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!
