You'd get a similar effect with the Zeon heat hawk or heat sword, which is
just a highly-conductive metal superheated by an electric current from the
fusion reactor. The flat of the weapon would simply be a hot surface,
while the edge would be, well, a sharp edge that's also heated to several
hundred degrees.

But any beam weapon would be heated to several thousand degrees, so I'd
expect even the flat side of a beam shield to do much more than merely scorch.
