You know what would've made the headline cooler subby?
Correct use of the apostrophe.

Only gun shields can save you from fire katanas.

Kiwamu doesn't reveal how he produces his swords of flame

It's rather obvious if you look carefully. It's most obvious in the green flame video that his katana is much thicker than a standard katana. It's either made from or wrapped in a porous material (probably braided Kevlar) which is then soaked in kerosene or lamp oil. There's a fire whip guy at my local Renaissance Faire that does something similar.

I had fire shoot out of my katana once.  I went to a doctor the next day.

Glorifying combat is how we get the chumps to fight for us.

Amazing how well it works, even to this day.

Because demonstrating the proper use of apostrophes is important.

Pretty sweet prop.

I wonder if it's just one type of fuel. The sparklers popping at the end of the swing make me think there's some granules of firework stuff hidden in little pockets that's swung free and ignited during the slash.

Obviously the sword probably needs to be refilled after every slash. and handled very carefully when it's filled. Only certain slashes probably keep the fuel from pouring down your arm.

Again though. It would look sick as a practical effect in a movie. Jackie Chan would beat that guy's ass while lighting his eyebrows on fire against that thing.

That design has come along a bit since the one I used in the Capital Wasteland.

It is a bit stupid to heat a forged blade, and we saw last year that it doesn't even look too pretty in too much darkness.

They're still useless if you charge your cavalry straight into the zombie army though.

Katana? Try again bud. I'd say tanto. At best.

I pray my son doesn't see the linked video. I don't feel like driving that little fart to the emergency room. As he would say, "bru, I'm trynna chillax."

Came to say exactly this. It's full round when he sheathes it. It's a bent and broken light saber.

Be rough to fit one to a Katana I'd imagine, they didn't leave a lot of room for extras on those things.
