@loke Good observation. If I imagine how it would feel in my hand I *think* this design would work, but I could be off. Or it's only suitable for a non-human with very specific hands.
Maybe I'll have to 3D print it to find out, that would be pretty cool. 😋
@mooncube I was thinking about this while playing the new Star Wars game, and one thing that I was considering was that a lightsabre would have to be balanced differently compared to a sword. I'm assuming the blade of a lightsabre doesn't have any weight, so it would feel very different compared to just removing the hilt from a regular sword.
@mooncube The lightsabre handle would also be much heavier that what you'd expect since you need some mass in order to get some energy into the swings. Unless of course you rely on the force for that. 🙂
@loke Absolutely, fighting with those things must feel super weird at first with the missing blade mass. I guess it's for a reason that they say you're more likely to hurt yourself than anybody else if you're not a trained Jedi.
