"Sweetheart? What have I told you about lighting the ceiling on fire?"
"Maw-awm! I asked you to call me Flamodon, The Human Ignition!"
Not to be confused with Latter Day Scorch, The Magma Missionary (above).
Real talk: Fire is one of the least accurate weapons a world dominator can employ, one that relies on a jetpack worth of fuel to last any length of time. This combination of unpredictable plus explosive fuel source means insane amounts of danger. So it would be a terrible idea to make something like, for instance, a firesword.
But, please, by all means, fuck hand protection.
Wrist-mounted flamethrowers may be more technically impressive, but having a weapon that simultaneously chops and sears your enemies can save you hours in both the kitchen and your makeshift basement dungeon. This flaming machete comes from GreekGadgetGuru, a man with a love of fire and a very low life expectancy. He based it on the shishkebab weapon from Fallout 3, and it's not much more complicated than covering a blade in butane and igniting it. He's not the only one to think of it, either. There are so many irresponsibly homemade fireswords and flamethrowers on YouTube, the internet will soon have more burn victims than cats.
