A real lightsaber like the ones wielded by Qui Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Luke Skywalker could cut through steel and deflect the blasts from powerful laser weapons. It took a Force user years of training to be able to use a lightsaber properly, and even then, it took many more years to develop true mastery.
Choose Your Own Realistic Lightsaber
There are actual lightsaber dueling schools here and now where you can become a real-life master of the forms of lightsaber combat used by the Jedi and Sith in Star Wars. If you should choose to enroll in one of these programs, having a realistic lightsaber will make you ready for your training. If you get a set of at least two lightsabers from ZIA Sabers, you can challenge your friends to see who is truly the most powerful duelist in the galaxy.
ZIA Dueling Lightsaber
You might be relieved to know that a ZIA saber will not cut off your arm if you mess up. But the blades we use are made of a durable polycarbonate material that is meant for dueling. Every dueling lightsaber in our inventory at ZIA Sabers is built to withstand full-strength lightsaber combat.
FAQs About Real Lightsaber
In a lightsaber dueling match-up, the emotional state and willpower of the combatants are just as important as their skills and practice with lightsabers. In a one-on-one fight, however, Count Dooku may have been the most feared lightsaber duelist in the Galaxy, thanks to his mastery of Form II, which is specialized to overcome opponents who also used lightsabers
When you first see the unusual curved design of Count Dooku's hilt, you may think it is strange. The curved hilt allowed him to make more efficient movements. It also set his blade at a different angle than a typical lightsaber, making his maneuvers unpredictable and difficult to counter.
Lightsabers are extremely powerful and dangerous weapons because they can easily cut through most armor. You may want to specialize in either using dexterity and agility to outmaneuver your opponents or using raw power and aggression to push them off-center.
If you specialize in one lightsaber form, you could become so precise that most of your foes will not be able to keep up. The disadvantage of this is that you may not have the flexibility to deal with unpredictable enemies. Anakin Skywalker exploited the weakness of specialization in his last fight with Count Dooku when he switched to Form V in the middle of their duel, surprising and quickly overwhelming Dooku before he could adjust.
Each form has its advantages and disadvantages, which is why most Jedi learned the basics of all of the main six forms before deciding if they would specialize in one or two.
