Darth Maul Lightsaber

All About Darth Maul Lightsaber

Darth Maul created the unusual double-bladed lightsaber to suit his formidable fighting style better. Known by most as Maul Saberstaff, the first double-bladed lightsaber owned by a Sith Lord, he took part in both the Clone Wars and the Naboo invasion.

An apprentice of the Sith, Darth Maul possessed a red lightsaber with two blades made by joining two hilts end to end. Maul's skill and extensive training allowed him to fight numerous opponents with his weapon as a single-bladed lightsaber or by using both red blades simultaneously. Darth Maul's double-bladed red lightsaber was a graceful weapon worthy of a powerful man. Its double-bladed lightsaber made it easier for him to lunge and slice.

Obi-Wan Kenobi broke the Sith lightsaber in half during a battle on Naboo. Maul used one half in battles until he lost it in a fight with his former master on Mandalore. He fixed the half into a double-bladed hilt after being released from prison. Still, it was destroyed in a duel with Ahsoka Tano, so he replaced it with another double-bladed red lightsaber he used until his death.

  • Hilt material: Alloy metals, suggesting durability and strength, which are essential for the rigors of lightsaber combat.
  • Crystal type: Kyber, along with an artificial lightsaber crystal. Using different kinds of crystals may have an impact on the characteristics and actions of the lightsaber.

Construction Information

  • Creator: Darth Maul, a mighty and skilled Sith Lord known for his agility and ferocity in combat.
  • Model: Originally a two-bladed Sith lightsaber, it evolved into a standard hilt. This implies that the weapon might have undergone changes or replacements over time.

Darth Maul obtained a double-bladed lightsaber with crimson blades throughout the Star Wars saga. Later, when Obi-Wan-Kenobi cut it in half in 32 BBY, it changed into a red single-bladed lightsaber.

Darth Maul’s Double-Bladed Lightsaber:

One of the most iconic weapons in Star Wars is Darth Maul's red, double-bladed lightsaber. The Sith Lord created the peculiar weapon for a lethal purpose. After observing Darth Sidious use a Sith Holocron, Apprentice Sith Maul made his double-bladed lightsaber.

Maul faced off against Eldra Kaitis with his lightsaber on the moon Drazkel. When the saberstaff had two blades, Maul used it on multiple missions for his master, Darth Sidious. Using it, he launched operations to eliminate adversaries and kill Jedi.

Maul dispatched Jedi Anoon Bondara, Siolo Ur Manka, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Darsha Assant using his lightsaber. He used his saberstaff to bring the criminal organization known as Black Sun to its knees.

After returning to the galaxy, Maul killed Finn Ertay, Jedi Bruu Jun-Fan, Grohto, and Ko Solok with his killer weapon. Maul used the lightsaber in battle on Moorjhone and in a fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Florrum. He also took it on trips to the palaces of Nal Hutta and Jabba D. Tiure. 


Construction of Double-Bladed Darth Maul’s Lightsaber:

Forcibly, Darth Maul forged his double-bladed lightsaber. Maul was sent to the Jentares system to kill the reclusive Jedi Master Siolo Ur Manka. Recognizing that his opponent would be beyond his martial abilities, Maul depended on his cunning strategy. On their first encounter, Maul took a blow to the face from his opponent's Force-infused staff.

Upon his return to his ship, Maul fashioned two different lightsabers using the Sith blueprints he had with him. Maul welded the weapons together to create his new lightsaber.

Maul's lightsaber comprised two identically patterned weapons attached at the pommels. The activator and regulation circuitry were directly beneath the two weapons' projection plate and beam transmitter. Besides the activator was a small, corrugated handgrip and a control lock.

A second set of control locks followed the next control for blade regulation. The focal point of the weapon was the intersection of the two lightsabers.

Maul takes great pride in crafting the crystals for his weapon. He meditated for four days and used a compression furnace to create four lightsaber crystals. He controlled and watched over the crystals' formation using the Force. 

Functionality of Darth Maul’s Double-Bladed Lightsaber:

Two lightsaber blades fused into a single line formed the saberstaff. Blade modulation controls allow each blade to be activated separately based on the situation and the enemy. It was constructed using ancient blueprints hidden in a Sith holocron that belonged to Darth Sidious.

Maul's double-bladed lightsaber can be converted to a single-bladed weapon anytime. Maul has to choose whether to use the second blade or not.

Maul fought multiple enemies at once. He used one or both of his red lightsabers. His agility and training helped him in the fight. 


Major Feats

  1. Battle of Naboo

Darth Maul used his lightsaber against Qui-Gon Jinn on Tatooine. During the Battle of Naboo, Maul used his weapon against Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, his pupil. After striking Jinn with the saber hilt to defeat him, Maul transfixed him in the stomach, severely wounding him.

After that, Kenobi got angry and attacked Maul. He broke Maul's lightsaber in half, leaving him with only half of it to use.

Despite this, Maul propelled Kenobi into a trench, dropped his lightsaber into the abyss, and unleashed a hail of sparks at the youthful Jedi, compelling him to retreat. When Maul let down his defenses and charged at him, Kenobi knew it was his chance. Kenobi seemed to use Jinn's lightsaber to cut Maul in half, killing him. After falling down the shaft with his lightsaber, Maul was deemed dead. 

  1. Return of Darth Maul

Despite his wounds, Darth Maul carried the usable half of the lightsaber with him during his escape to Lotho Minor. Maul escaped the garbage tube that had imprisoned him on Lotho Minor using his lightsaber. He then used it to destroy a Fire-breather, sparing Morley's life.

Maul's brother, Savage Opress, finds out that Maul has survived. After obtaining the lightsaber from Lotho Minor, Savage Opress sent Maul back to Dathomir, where their mother, Talzin, would tend to his wounds. Maul's lightsaber, which he used to exact revenge on Kenobi, was given back by his brother. 

  1. Massacre on Raydonia

He used it to kill innocent Raydonian villagers and transport Kenobi to Maul. After traveling to Raydonia, Kenobi met Darth Maul and found himself imprisoned by both of his brothers. Obi-Wan was soon rendered unconscious by Savage Opress, and the two abducted him before dragging him aboard their pilfered vessel.

When Kenobi arrived, Maul and Savage Opress attacked and defeated him. Maul planned to use his lightsaber to torture Kenobi until Asajj Ventress arrived. Maul and his brother contest Ventress and Kenobi until they can escape. 

  1. Outer Rim Slaughter

The lightsaber was used in 20 BBY by Jedi Masters Ko Solok, Bruu Jun-Fan, and Grohto. They used it against Pleem's Nexus, Yellowblade's Landing, and Paklan. It was also applied to several bounty hunters.

After that, Maul and Opress wreaked havoc throughout the galaxy, battling Jedi Masters Padawan Dray, Salmara, and Judd on Moorjhone. Maul's sabre severed Dray's hands.

Darth Maul kept his lightsaber in his hand as he and Savage Opress tore a hole in the Outer Rim. Maul chased after a Nikto Jedi and Jedi Knight Finn Ertay in a spaceport, using his lightsaber to defeat them.

Maul fought two Jedis. He then used his lightsaber to defeat many security droids at the Cybloc Transfer Station. After that, he attacked the facility.

  1. Skirmish on Florrum

Maul wielded it briefly against his brother in a struggle for dominance over the roles of instructor and pupil. Darth Maul used the saber blade to quickly end the blaster fire, ending the battle and forging a partnership. Maul had planned to recruit pirates above Florrum, but when the pirates, led by Jiro, mistook them for Jedi, Not too long after, he used it against Obi-Wan Kenobi on Florrum.

  1. Maul’s Upsurge to Power

Pre-Vizsla took Maul's lightsaber away when the Death Watch of Mandalore found him and Opress, and the two Zabraks recovered. Maul received his lightsaber back after Vizsla agreed to an alliance between Death Watch and him. Maul used his lightsaber to remove the numerous Hutt Clan and Black Sun villains to create the Shadow Collective, a cohesive criminal group. Maul used the lightsaber to fight Vizsla following the Shadow Collective's takeover of Mandalore.

Even though Vizsla fired it out of his hand during their battle, Darth Maul could still decapitate Vizsla using his Darksaber. Besides the Darksabe
