      Please tell me y’all are keeping track of all the original models. I’d go see a Hacksmith Museum.

    • DragonHawke Clouse says:

      @Ravonies Ravenshir ?could i plasma the native air?…..what does that mean?

      what i referenced is a type of plasma that can ACTUALLY sword fight with another

      i have no idea what you are saying

    • Shallux says:

      @Jack Wrath You quite literally have no content bot

    • Ravonies Ravenshir says:

      Could you plasma the native air around you, without having to use a tank of gas, just electricity and a micro jet engine modified to produce the blade?

  2. Plasma Channel says:

    If this isn’t proof that our platform leads to innovative thinking, creative thought, and useful inventions, I dont know what is. Hacksmith team, great work. Ever considered anti-phase lasers that cancel out at the convergence point? Cheers!

  3. dawson man says:

    This series really shows trade offs in effect. They traded swinging ability for a rodless flame lightsaber that cut stuff, and then one day they’ll combine both of them.

  4. Kobi Hemmerle says:

    This seems like a great update, I’d love to see a combination of this an some kind of retractable metal rod so you can actually hit stuff with it

  5. Jonah Melkowski says:

    Hey guys, love the channel. I had a couple thoughts on how you might improve the saber for your next version. Have y’all considered using acetylene as a fuel instead of propane, as it burn a lot hotter? Also, I saw one guy devise using a telescoping ceramic blade that would dispense the plasma throught tiny holes along its length, while also allowing you to have a solid blade.

    • dr_kellogg says:

      So this is where they’re going to need to start utilizing the way rocket engines cool the inside combustion chamber of the rocket and engine nozzle. Temperatures reached by combustion in rocket engines often substantially exceed the melting points of the nozzle and materials (about 1,200 K for copper). Regenerative cooling, where the propellant is passed through tubes around the combustion chamber or nozzle, and other techniques, such as curtain cooling or film cooling. (wiki)

    • BLΛCK RØSΞ says:

      While I am kinda on the side of using acetylene for a hotter output, what has to be in consideration is the outer part of the saber not melting itself while it’s active. Maybe I’m wrong on this but I’m not sure if the materials the hacksmith are using can withstand higher temps. But hey if I’m wrong then I’d love to see that

  6. Skibidiba mmmdada says:

    Just gonna say, these guys are evolving the lightsaber faster than the Jedi were in canon

  7. SeanHodgins says:

    You know something is well engineered when you let the public play around with it!

    • Jacob Rama says:

      @Jacen Solo I’d like to see you make one

    • Thedarkbunnyrabbit says:

      @SamLeroSberg This is like saying you didn’t invent a refrigerator because you didn’t invent freon. That’s why people get upset, because it’s nonsense.

    • SamLeroSberg says:

      @Jacen Solo I kinda agree on this. But you know how people get butt hurt over this because they assembled it and got a world record for being the first.

    • scudsturm1 says:

      @Jacen Solo minus the controller, i wonder if u can buy that one in the shop

    • Medic Gaming says:

      @Jacen Solo Bro watch the original video they may have used a commercial product for the nozzle but they made everything else.

  8. Joseph says:

    Since you seem to be going for aesthetics on the blade, could you have a casing for the power pack to make it look like a blaster in a holster? It would draw attention from the fact that the lightsaber isn’t actually free floating as well
