Silver Age Beyond
Fusion Blade (TL8): An energy sword. Fusion Blades — like most free floating fusion energy tech — were developed from stolen alien technology. At the flick of a switch, a sword-shaped force field is created which instantly fills with plasma. Anything which comes into contact with this blade-shaped field can get severely damaged, similar to being hit by an energy bolt from a ranged weapon. Like blasters, fusion blades can leak through energy shields (forcefields).
