    • I just also thought that

    • 420! 😁 Seems appropo for a Mirage based light saber

    • No

    • Hyper- Link Umm... how is light supposed to clash after hitting another beam of light anyway lol, and I don’t think flamethrowers get to be 4000 degrees.

    • 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.

  • That's it! That's the spirit, don't give in to the Reddit trolls

  • I just realized how dumb I actually am, after watching these lads put in some serious levels of engineering and creativity. I've accomplished nothing in life.... sad.

  • Imagine you can buy a lightsaber on Amazon...

  • Lets be honest, we all want a lightsaber this cool.

  • When I saw it at the end I got goosebumps and wanted to cry it’s so beautiful

  • Couple years from now there will be Jedi’s

  • Well its a very good start, everything doesnt become perfect in first time, they are improved overtime.

  • umm question how much did this cost you mr hacksmith

  • *It costs 400000 dollars to use this sword for 12 seconds...*

  • Wheres the sound effects?

    • ForceFX board built into the hilt, speaker in backpack

  • 12:31 that hurts to look at look at that

  • 2020: protosaber 2021: breaking the laws of thermodynamics to make an actual lightsaber

  • I wanna touch it...WHY DO I WANT TO TOUCH IT

  • Where is the nearest kindergarten

  • Ghostbusters

  • You created lightsaber that is cooler than original. Awesome!

  • Plot twist, George Lucas use real light sables and is sabotaging the people trying to create it

  • that's somr dexter laboratory shit

  • You've done it now I have a request can you make waifu's Real?

  • Subscribed.

  • I think all you need to power that up is a single kiber crystal

  • Flame thrower.....

  • If you use potassium Chloride you get get a purple light saber as well, which would be so cool.

  • Stfu and get my money!!

  • You are The Live action Dr. Stone XD

  • How would you make the lightsaber that was trapped in a box cause that still seems pretty cool

  • i watched the test video at first but had to come back to appreciate the engineering and artistry

  • It's beautiful I have looked at it for about 5 hour now

  • what's so wonderful about a light saber, other than being yet another death weapon for idiots to murder each other with?


  • In terms of science it’s impossible to create a real Star Wars lightsaber. But the ‘protosaber’ they made seems pretty usable in real life.

  • The first girly "wooh" was enough...

  • How can this Video has 25k dislikes??

  • Dude you are awesome and this is awesome

  • Fallout shishkebab is what i saw.

  • What a legend. You're still reading every comment

  • That Lightsaber looks like a mix between ghostbusters and star wars. Beautiful and amazing and btw do you guys get paid for this? Great video 👍 Keep it up.

  • It's a star wars flame thrower

  • Can i- can I buy one?

  • This vid is so close to 69,420 comments

  • Real question is, can you guys get like a dead pig and put clothes on it, then see what happens when you chop off its limbs or stab it in the torso? Compare this to what the movie depicted in anakin's mutilation, etc.

  • Nice, a Jedi carrying a 10kilo LPG Tank.

  • You need Varta batteries 😉

  • Scientists who are trying to figure out how to make a lightsaber: We need to find a way to have a power source that’s strong enough to make a laser impenetrate anything, but also find a way to have the laser extract a certain distance so that it doesn’t travel forever and ever. The Hacksmith: **Distinctly** Guys, I - I found the solution! Right here! Guys? Hello?

  • So a flamethrower, but a sword

  • That's story fired the imagination of thousands of scientist and artists all over the world. It's so sad to see what it has become.

  • Propane and propane accessories

  • This guy is the next tony stark

  • Propane, and propane accessories.

  • Hack smith brain IQ be like: 99999999999999999999999999999

  • Hey, Glass blower here, couldn’t help but notice I didn’t see flash arrestors for your gas lines. Also you should be wearing some type of welding shades especially when cutting metal.

    • You don't need flash arrestors for oxypropanr

  • I would be more impressed with the miniture power supply needed to power the light saber.

  • It reminds me the protosabers from star wars legends they were used during the hundred year darkness and the great hyperspace war by jedi, dark jedi and sith excelent work guys keep it up, may the force be with you ........... always.

  • hes sponsored by strickland propane and propane accessories

  • Literally 90% of the comments are about "it hurts to look at..."

  • That bright light is hope...

  • No way... a jet of plasma burns through things that people already know plasma can burn through. Boring

  • Just experiment with cold fusion. All problems solved

  • DARPA has entered the chat

  • this ain't the first ever build! i seen plenty of lightsaber builds.

  • youre such a nerd!

  • So..."jedi" is another word for "scientist" 👌

  • Gun Control in this country is soon to become Saber Control 😆

  • Oh no industrial equipment

  • Strontium Chloride - the color of the dark side of the force.

  • A Lightsaber with Gas ? .. He like that :D

  • I don’t care what others say, this is insane. Props to you!

  • Does someone knows what they used as the "Lightsabler controller" ?

  • Wach alex burkan

  • Yoda:watch your career with great interest I will

  • Build a tokamak that actually generates energy (or can't u guys do that?)

  • Wowww

  • I know i would be doing anything with it... but i want this workshop xD

  • He’s insane!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wow just wow.... Hats off to your effort guys

  • This hurts to look at to see so many 'this hurts to look at' comments on this piece of engineering marvel.

  • This is great stuff!

  • Everyone should own these.

  • Really interested in the physics of this. If you made a deep dive on the physics that'd be amazing (full math)

  • OMG gostbuster 🤩

  • wow incredible

  • This is more like a flamethrower than a light saber

    • A perfectly saber-shaped flamethrower.

  • Well, he tried to dress up like a jedi but he looked much more like Jesus

  • every military in the world wants to know your location

  • Can this block laser beam like in starwars Owai~

  • You've done planet earth a service thank you

  • 9:31 that voice crack tho

  • 🇺🇸 12:30 "That's actually hard to look at ... Look at that" ... Dudes tryin' to kill us .

  • Good job man you did it

  • He looks like Jesus who builds things from comics

  • thats a very intricate and flashy bunsen burnerrrrrrrr

  • Now make Han Solos blaster

  • it's cool how thay made this but im not a vary big fan of star wars sorry but i am nine

  • The Force is strong on this channel

  • I thought I was smart. Bogdan has shown me I am not.

  • Great Job :)

  • People be hating and be the first ones on the vids

  • Make the hulk buster
