Hey all, been awhile since I did any saber art, and all the old threads are positively buried, so I'm gonna be trying to draw a few sabers out every week, and encourage you all creative types to join!

Todays is just a work doodle and not too practical, but I got thinking "what if you could half-sword a lightsaber?"

Sweet!   Does the blade pass through the upper section with an exposed area for blocking?

Yeah, that was the idea. Half-swording as a martial art is when you grip the blade of a sword for precision and aiming for weak points in armor. Obviously grabbing a saber blade could be problematic so i added a shroud.

I've thought a few times of doing a staff config with a 'blocking zone' in the middle, where you could use exposed blade or maybe a force field like a ghaffi stick to block.  My bo techniques use the center of the bow to block so often, its VERY hard to translate anything directly to saber staff...

yeah, the cue stick comes to mind.  Ahhh! My fingers!


I can see somebody trying shift their hand forward, on PS's design, coming short, wrapping their fingers and Ahhh! My fingers!

Still a cool design, just tricky to wield...

This is awesome PS!  This evinces me of an ancestral weapon of (or influenced by) some ancient Jedi/Sith.  I would love to see more illustrations of lightsabers!  Speaking of...

If you haven't already, I would HIGHLY recommend visiting For Tyeth's thread concerning lightsaber design; he's got some truly remarkable hilts already posted  Smiley

And I WISH that I were that creative!  I can't even draw stick figures... Tongue

This gave me a laugh  Smiley

...But, then again, think about the concept of lightsabers as a whole: really, REALLY, REALLY dangerous!  Which is why I'd always thought that wielding such a weapon (or at least with proficiency) would require something like the Force  Wink  Which reminds me...

Since the person(s) who would use this (awesome!) weapon would most likely be a Forceuser, I'm willing to allow my suspension of disbelief to be comfortable with the fact that they wouldn't wrap their fingers around the plasma blade  Wink

Again PS: I'd really like to see more of this (and other) design(s)!

Point!

Hello PsycoSith,

Thanks for the kind words on my work. And I am eagerly looking forward to seeing a few more of your designs. Altenweg is fantastic and even if it didn't have the "half sword" extension it would be a beautiful creation (I like slanted emitters, though I haven't posted many myself yet).

Tried a different style today. Really pleased with it. Went for a shorter hilt and more "ramshackle" appearance for this one.

Nice PS!  I love the features you included and I definitely interpreted the "ramshackle" feel that you were going for; yet, it is still has an elegance about it. 

Once again, the attention to detail is fantastic!  I could see an itinerant Forceuser having constructed this while hiding out post-Order 66.

Point!
