Everyone loves the ultimate weapon of the guardians of the galaxy, known as lightsabers. However, only the hardcore fans are obsessed with the Darksaber. It is a unique lightsaber type that is only one of its kind in the entire galaxy.
The Darksaber appeared for the first time in Clone Wars. Since then, it has been the favorite weapon of both the old fans and the foundlings.
A Darksaber has a dark blade with bright outer edges. It has the same design as any lightsaber with a hilt and a blade. This Star Wars Mandalorian lightsaber is unique both in history and its appearance.
We know that the Darksaber is not a weapon of Jedi. However, The connection of the Darksaber with the Jedis and lightsabers is much deeper than people may think. So, what is a Darksaber exactly?
Where did it come from? And why is it called Star Wars Mandalorian lightsaber? Let’s see quickly. Also, we will see what a Hasbro Darksaber is in our world, and why is it the best customizable electronic lightsaber?
What is Darksaber Made of?
There is only one Darksaber in the galaxy, and it was created thousands of years ago before the Skywalker Saga. Tarre Vizsla, a Mandalorian and a Jedi, created the Darksaber. It is also known as the Mandalorian Lightsaber.
The hilt of the Darksaber has a unique traditional design and was made of Pure Beskar. Some say that the Darksaber does not have any Kyber crystal. Instead, Beskar was used inside the hilt too to power the Darksaber.
The Beskar is an element with an extremely high density. It is considered an unbreakable material. Beskar holds a special place in the hearts of the people of Mandalore. They are warriors and use Beskar for their armors, helmets, weapons, and even for worship.
Beskar is one of the few materials in the galaxy that can withstand lightsaber blows. That is right! A lightsaber cannot cut through it. So, making a saber with the material of its rival is combining both qualities in one weapon. This hybrid composition of this Mandalorian lightsaber made it even better than most lightsabers.
If you have watched Clone Wars and Rebels, you would know that Mandalorians are proud people who did not like Jedis since ancient times. Mandalorians never liked Jedis, and they even had a war against the Jedi. They called them sorcerers of the galaxy.
Tarre Vizsla was the only Mandalorian who became a Jedi. Tarre Vizsla acts as a middleman of peace for both the Jedi Order and the Mandalore. Although, these relations only remained until Tarre Vizsla lived. After he passed, relations between the Jedi Order and the Mandalorians got worse again.
After Tarre Vizsla died, the Darksaber was kept inside the Jedi academy. Unfortunately, the Mandalorians wanted this Mandalorian lightsaber for themselves. They claimed it belonged to them. They did not want the Jedi Order to keep the Darksaber.
The Mandalorians do not allow anyone else to have any item or weapon of Beskar. When the Jedi Order did not return them Beskar, it became one of the reasons for the war between the Jedis and Mandalorians.
During the Jedi-Mandalorian War, the Mandalorians invaded the Jedi Academy and stole the Darksaber. They somehow got their Mandalorian lightsaber back, but declaring a war against the Jedi Order was not a wise move. The war resulted in the loss of Mandalorians and the destruction of their home planet Mandalore.
Since then, the people of the Mandalore have been acting as the guardian of the Darksaber. The Darksaber became the symbol of power and authority in Mandalore. The story says anyone who wins the Mandalorian lightsaber (Darksaber) in a duel can keep the Darksaber. He also gets to rule the throne of Mandalore. The Darksaber does not have power. The story does.
This story is the reason why Darksaber is of such great importance to the people of Mandalore.
Mandalorian Darksaber in Star Wars
The Darksaber first appeared in the Old Republic during the Clone Wars. As we saw, Tee Vizsla was the owner of the Mandalorian lightsaber during the Clone Wars.
The famous Sith Lord, Darth Maul, came to Mandalore after he lost on the Naboo planet. He challenged Tee Vizsla in a duel and won. Maul got the Darksaber and became the ruler of Mandalore.
Maul ruled the Mandalore for some time until Ahsoka defeated and captured him. He was caught, but he hid Darksaber somewhere. Later in the ‘Rebels.’ series, we found out that he had the Darksaber hidden on his home planet Dathomir. When Ezra and Sabine went to Dathomir, they found this shiny Mandalorian lightsaber. As Sabine was a Mandalorian, she kept the Dakrsaber to herself.
Sabine Wren learned how to use a Darksaber and returned to Mandalore. There, she fought against Tee Vizsla and defeated him when she returned to her home planet Mandalore. That means she had the right to sit on the Mandalorian Throne, but instead, she gave it to Bo-Katan. She thought she was not worthy enough for the Darksaber.
We found out in the “Book of Boba Fett.” series that anyone who gets the Darksaber without a duel can cause a curse. The myth turned out to be true. Bo-Katan did not win it in battle, which destroyed their home planet.
The Empire attacked Mandalore and destroyed everything. Mandalorians were forced to run away and live in hiding on other planets. The night when Empire attacked is remembered as “The Night of the Thousand Tears.” Bo-Katan also lost the Mandalorian lightsaber, and Moff-Gideon took it to the Imperial ship.
In the 2nd season of “The Mandalorian.” Din Djarin fought against Moff Gideon when he went to protect Grogu. He defeated Moff Gideon using a Beskar weapon and took the Mandalorian lightsaber. He wanted to give it to Bo-Katan, but she did not take it as Din Djarin won it in a duel, and he had the right to keep it. Bo-Katan was also afraid that it might bring destruction to her home planet again if she kept it without the duel.
Din Djarin kept it to himself and trained with it. He learned how to connect with the Darksaber, as seen in “The Book of Boba Fett.” series. Hopefully, we will see the fate of the Darksaber in the third season of “The Mandalorian.” Will Din Djarin be the one who will continue the legacy of Tarre Vizsla? Will he be able to unite the Mandalorians? We will learn soon enough.
Why did Darksaber become so Heavy for Din Djarin?
As seen in the “Book of Boba Fett.” Din Djarin could not lift the Darksaber properly. He found it very heavy to even carry while the other people easily wielded it. Why is that?
Well, the Mandalorian lightsaber is very similar to other lightsabers. A lightsaber has a crystal inside, which is a living entity. When the Jedis wield the lightsaber, they must emotionally connect with the crystal.
The same goes for Darksaber. The emotions of the wielder effects drastically on the Darksaber. The moment when Din Djarin wielded the Mandalorian lightsaber, he was emotionally unstable. He wanted to go and see Grogu for the last time. He was also worried about breaking Mandalorian Code by removing his helmet in front of another human being.
These emotional disturbances affect Darksaber drastically. These unstable emotions caused the Darksaber to become heavy, and Din Djarin had trouble lifting or swinging it.
