Like many of you, Caleb Kraft is a fan of Fallout 4. Unlike many of you he’s a maker both in the game and in real life. When he saw the concept art for a new version of the series’ flaming sword he decided to make a fully-functioning replica. This is Vault Dweller at Arms.
Caleb asked the help of the famous retro console modder Ryan Fitzpatrick aka Platinumfungi to make the Shishkebab replica. They made it by installing a crude flame-throwing system on an actual katana. Unlike the video game sword, this replica’s motorcycle handbrake isn’t just a handguard. It’s also the trigger that releases butane from a canister to the copper pipe installed over the blade. A button near the hilt activates a spark of electricity at one of the pipe’s openings to ignite the butane.
