<< Previous Page

Type: Powered Melee weapon
Scale: Character
Skill: Lightsaber: Double-Bladed Lightsaber
Cost: Unavailable for sale
Availability: 4, X
Difficulty: Difficult
Damage: 5D
Game Notes: Proper use of a double-bladed lightsaber requires the specialization Lightsaber: Double-Bladed Lightsaber. Without the proper specialization, the difficulty to use a double-bladed lightsaber is very difficult, and none of the special benefits of the double-bladed lightsaber may be used.

Background: A pair of lightsabers were owned and wielded by Pong Krell, a Besalisk Jedi Master who operated as a Jedi General during the Clone Wars. They were both double-bladed weapons, one of which was blue and the other green, and were able to fold down their middle for easier storage.

The identical pair of lightsabers wielded by Pong Krell were primarily constructed out of a metallic material and were bulkier than ordinary lightsabers to accommodate for its owner’s large paws and stature. Both featured one blade at either side of the hilt in a double-bladed configuration, a design that was uncommon among members of the Jedi Order. When activated, one lightsaber emitted two blue blades and the other emitted two green blades. Both lightsabers produced distinct thrums when activated that were lower-pitched than an average lightsaber’s. A hinge at the midpoint of both lightsabers allowed Krell to fold the weapons in half for easier storage, though they could still be activated in this configuration. Kyber crystals served as the internal power source of the lightsabers. While not wielding his sabers, Krell tended to clip them to his utility belt around his hip.
