@mooncube The lightsabre design is very distinct, but I think a real one would be more smooth so they are easier and more comfortable to hold.
I wonder what such a lightsabre would look like. Perhaps it wouldn't look "star wars" enough.
@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.
