Usage and history

The long-handle lightsaber was a variation on the traditional Jedi weapon with a handle several times larger than that of a standard lightsaber. Requiring a particular fighting style from the wielder, this weapon was easy to swing around the body, using joints of the body as fulcrums upon which the lightsaber could be levered.


History and use

A Bpfasshi Dark Jedi wielding a long-handle lightsaber.
One of the Bpfasshi Dark Jedi defeated by Jedi Master Yoda during the Clone Wars used a long-handle lightsaber made of an as-yet unknown material. Jedi Master Zao used a lightsaber with a hilt made a long wooden cane which the blind Jedi Master used to help him get around. Jedi Master Yarael Poof also used a long-handled lightsaber to fit his tall frame.
Yarael Poof's lightsaber.

During the rise of the empire, Darth Vader's Sith apprentice, Galen Marek, came into combat with this type of lightsaber when he was sent to hunt down Jedi fugitive Kazdan Paratus.

This type of lightsaber was favored by the Sith Lord Darth Nihl, whose lightsaber was long and staff-like in appearance. The handle seemed not to be made of metal, but almost of coral or wood. On the opposite end to the blade emitter was a ring big enough to fit Nihl's hand. Nihl used this lightsaber with deadly effectiveness, taking the right arm of Wolf Sazen and dueling Kol Skywalker.
