Let me get the “don’t try this at home” disclaimer out of the way before I say that this homemade flaming lightsaber by Allen Pan is frickin’ awesome.
It uses a methanol/acetone fuel mixture with a butane propellent so, technically, it’s a glorified lighter. We prefer to think of it as a glorious lightsaber lighter with sound effects.
Watch the video below to see it in action. You’ll really enjoy the bit at the end.
Allen Pan is also the man behind this Mjolnir prank. Needless to say, he’s pretty good at this stuff.
