Lightsaber is a metallic, cylindrical melee weapon which is normally wielded by Jedi Knights; used since the Great Scourge of Malachor, a battle which has seen the Jedi Order clash with the Sith Empire millenniums before the Galactic Civil War, it is like Master Obi-Wan Kenobi said: “Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

From the hugely common training lightsabers to the mystic Darksaber who has been kept in the Jedi Temple for a very long time, due to its importance, this weapon is also used during the ceremony of investiture when a Padawan become a true Jedi Knight. Based on its wielder’s amount of Force; lightsabers don’t only cut anything but it is also useful to deflect enemy shots more quickly and more elegantly than any shield.

Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker are the greatest personalities who could wield it, making the difference in the Order. But Jedi Knights are not the only ones who can use it; in fact, even the most powerful individuals that have been seduced by the dark side of the Force are equipped with the Sith lightsabers; even if they seem not so different from the Jedi’s ones they have an increased destructive power based on emotions which come out from the dark side…A so epic weapon cannot go unnoticed, and as you already know -maybe- lightsabers have appeared in an insanely big number of opuses; movies, comics, cartoons, books, and video games expanded the knowledge about them until the tiniest detail turning billions of people into aspiring Jedi Knights or Sith.
