this was the name given to a torture method in which a blaster was set to its lowest power output. The weapon was then used to burn the flesh from the victim's bones. The blaster's beam was set so that the bone remained intact but scorched, and the victim could see what was happening to them. Very few victims ever withheld information when tortured by this method. The person administering the torture usually started at the toes and worked their way up the leg toward the chest and head.
