In honor of the Star Wars frenzy that has seemed to take the country by storm, Sufficiently Advanced decided to make a real life lightsaber that uses a thin burning flame as its blade.

Technically, it’s more of a flamesaber if that’s even a thing, but it sure looks cool as hell.

The real life lightsaber uses a nichrome ignition, a methanol and acetone fuel mixture, butane as a propellant, and a valve for control.

The result is pretty spectacular.
