Background: The lightsaber pike was a thick, imposing lightsaber variant similar in design to the double-bladed lightsaber in that it was a staff-shaped weapon that featured two rare and distinctive yellow plasma blades projecting from either end. Some lightsaber pikes had a haft that, when activated, emitted a shoto blade that made it two to three meters long and also came in a hinged version. Darth Bane had a unique lightsaber pike that was a single-blade and had an extremely long handle. Luke Skywalker also had a single-blade variation but was almost a standard hilt.
