A lightsaber katana is the closest we'll get to Star Wars in real life

I'm still holding out hope for light sabers in the future but with our world's technological limitations and silly allocation of resources, the most beautiful deadly sword-type weapon we can create without lasers might be this mashup of a lightsaber and katana made by Man At Arms: Reforged.

It's mostly a katana with an intricately designed lightsaber handle but it sure is pretty to look at. And deadly. I wish they were able to change the color of the steel or use a different metal or at least shine a light on the blade to make it look even cooler, though.

Maybe I'm a tamahagane purest, but something about this doesn't feel authentic.
