Sentai and the Iconic Flame Swords

Super Sentai had some fire swords which were kind of iconic. Now let's see how them. Note most of them used real flames.

Gou Shirou/Red One had the flame sword which the scene used real flames during filming.

Kakuranger's Muteki Daishogun used a flaming sword. In one episode, Sasuke/Ninja Red used a shrunken version of the sword to fight the enemies. The set used real flames NOT CGI.

In Shinkenger, I believe they had to use CGI for one good reason as the sword was too big and the flames started while the sword was on Takeru/Shinken Red's shoulders. So I guess it's pretty excusable Shinkenger doesn't use real flames otherwise much injury may occur to the stuntman doing it or especially that swinging a flaming blade that big is TOO difficult with real flames.

Strangely enough for Goseiger, the finishing move uses footage with CGI flames when the attack starts up but when it's time to finish the enemy then...real flames are used instead. Nice editing if you ask me.

    Care & Handling of Your Katana & Swords Maintaining your Katana: The scabbard of your Katana is finished in many coats of black lacquer. To preserve the sheen, the scabbard needs only to be wiped occasionally with a very soft cloth. Handle the scabbard only by holding the wrapped section; otherwise fine scratches caused by handling the lacquered sections will dull the finish. Blade maintenance is very important to preserve the finish. The maintenance kit allows you to maintain your blade the same way as original pieces were (and are) maintained. Blade maintenance should be performed at least every three months and any time the blade is touched (skin oil will cause rapid corrosion of fine steels). Blade Maintenance First, use a sheet of rice paper to remove oil from previous maintenance, holding the edge away from you and working very carefully to avoid injury. (Note: if you wish to save the rice paper, a soft cotton cloth may be substituted) Then tap the powder ball lightly against the blade every two inches or so along its length, dusting the blade very lightly with powder. (Note: when using the ball for the first time, you may need to tap the ball against the blade a few times to “start” the powder flow through the fabric of the ball.) Then use a clean piece of rice paper or cotton cloth to carefully rub over the powder to polish the blade. Repeat until both sides of the blade have been polished and the powder is removed. Do not inhale the powder. Apply a few drops of oil along the length of each side of the blade and use a piece of rice paper or cotton cloth to spread the oil evenly over the blade. Be sure not to touch the blade again before resheathing. NOTE: If you have rust, etc - try using a soft buffing wheel with the black compound. You can also go to the auto parts store and get ‘mag wheel cleaner’ (Eagle 1 is a good brand) or use Metal Glo with finegrade steel wool. Remember to gently use the steel wool in a brushing stroke parallel to the grain of the steel (the direction of the lines in the steel). Warning - rubbing in circles or across the grain will scratch the steel. If your sword is not a Katana - look at it carefully to determine the direction of the grain. With some swords, the grain runs from the middle (fuller) towards the sharp edges on both sides.
