With the release of Bethesda's Fallout 4 real-life fan weapons and costumes are sure to appear. Make Magazine's Caleb Kraft and Ryan Fitzpartick (PlatinumFungi) just didn't make a cosplay prop but a functional working live-action Shishkebab flame sword.
We had the chance to interview them and play with the weapon.
"Fashioned out of hammered lawnmower blades, a gas tank from a motorcycle, and other miscellaneous parts, this thing will ignite any monster you slash. I thought it would be a really fun build," says Caleb.

What is a Shishkebab?
The Shishkebab is a makeshift "flaming sword" that requires the appropriate schematics to build. The motorcycle gas tank provides a reservoir of fuel, the handbrake becomes the handguard and the lawn mower blade becomes the blade of the sword.
What is Fallout 4?
Fallout 4 is an open world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Fallout 4 is set in a post-apocalyptic Boston in the year 2287, 210 years after a devastating nuclear war, in which the player character emerges from an underground bunker known as a Vault. Gameplay is similar to Fallout 3. Completing quests and acquiring experience levels up the character, allowing for new abilities. Fallout 4 takes place in the year 2287, 10 years after the events of Fallout 3, 7 years after Fallout: New Vegas, and 210 years after a Third World War over natural resources that ended in a nuclear holocaust in 2077. The setting is a post-apocalyptic Vault-Tec retro-future, covering a region that includes Boston, Massachusetts and other parts of New England known as "The Commonwealth". Unlike the previous titles, Fallout 4's story begins on the day the bombs dropped: October 23, 2077. The player's character (voiced by either Brian T. Delaney or Courtenay Taylor) takes shelter in Vault 111, emerging exactly 210 years later, on October 23, 2287 Pip-Boy in hand. • SUBSCRIBE to us on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/sub...
