From right to left the Milano – The Nottingham and the Messina who could argue so if you would like to see how good they look in real life installations simply take a look at our gallery page as the song goes “a picture paints a thousand words”

So what has this got to do with Lightsaber ‘s well actually nothing we only gave the above example to show how easily we can describe a range of doors that is sold in thousands as a comparison as to the complexity of trying to describe a Lightsaber the sort used by Luke Skywalker and others in the Star Wars movies – like the one below –


So what is a Lightsaber – Obi- Wan Kenobi described it thus –

“A formal weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster .More skill than simple sight was required to use it. An elegant weapon. It was also a symbol – anyone can use a fusioncutter – but to use a Lightsaber well was a mark of someone a cut above the ordinary.”

Apparently the earliest known functional Lightsaber was the “First Blade” built on Tython prior to the Force wars by an unknown Je’daii master known only as the “Weapon Master” With the formation of the Jedi Order after the Force Wars, ceremonial weapons were an integral part of the order. For millennia after the Force wars the Jedi continued to use bladed weapons such as swords because the LIghtsaber was insufficiently refined for regular use.

The ultimate weapon consisted of a blade of pure plasma emitted from the hilt and suspended in a force containment field which contained the immense heat of the plasma thereby protecting the wielder and allowing the blade to maintain its shape. The Hilt was almost always self fabricated by the wielder to match his or her specific needs, preference and style. Due to the weightlessness of plasma and the strong gyroscopic effect generated by it, Lightsabers required a great deal of strength and dexterity to wield therefore it was extremely difficult and dangerous for the untrained to attempt to use. However in the hands of “the Force” the Lightsaber was a weapon to be respected and feared. To wield a Lightsaber was to demonstrate incredible skill and confidence as well as masterful attunement to “the Force”

And that’s just under three hundred words and we have not touched the sides as to the history and development of the LIghtsaber – in order to even write this short description we cheated and cribbed it from the excellent Wookiepedia site http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lightsaber – where the words just keep on coming running into multiple thousands and for “everything you ever wanted to know about Lightsabers but were afraid to ask” – it has to be the go to site

When it comes to comparison of specifications and technical drawings we at GFD HQ understand the timber core photograph at the top of the article – the schematic below is apparently of Luke Skywalkers dads Lightsaber this we unashamedly admit we do not understand


We hope we have assisted in your quest for knowledge of the lightsaber but for now we at GFD HQ will stick to selling doors.
