few would be aware that the concept of the Lightsaber (from Starwars) is largely based on the Monofilament Sword which is long a SF & Fantasy staple weapon. Briefly, we have a strand only one-atom in thickness, stretched out taunt by some means and often with a safety button at the tip. Since its thickness is so extremely thin -- its capable of dicing steel with a simple swing from the handle. If one were to employ solely a laser (or plasma) beam - just HOW do you make it finite length and not have it go on out through walls, and atmosphere, with only some SquareRoot-of-distance attenuation?

Monofilament Sword from Aries America

Sharpened to a Single Atom
Quote:
Weapons that have been sharpened to a single atom are a particular type of Absurdly Sharp Blade that are so sharp, their cutting edge can be measured in terms of atoms or molecules, often being just a single molecule wide. This usually gives the weapons Absurd Cutting Power, but generally requires the blade to be made out of some sort of Unotanium to maintain that sharpness without dulling instantly (or just shattering into a million pieces) the first time it's used. For these reasons, the trope is most frequently encountered in Science Fiction settings.

A common term used for this is "monomolecular". Most often seen with knives or swords, but occurs from time to time with Razor Wire, too. This can be particularly troublesome, as monomolecular wire is usually functionally invisible, and walking into one can slice through vital bits without being immediately noticed.


'Now with Double the dicing power. Get through opponents both coming and going.'

gramma and spellen do not count during a zombie attack.

AND, the range was crowded today and I could not check out my new Ruger 10/22. All the benches were full at the 50yrd section. They had one bench at the 100yrd but I didnt want to start there! Anyone know if a .22lr will kill a zombie at 100yrds?
