The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

A hinged double-bladed lightsaber was a type of double-bladed lightsaber that could fold in half, making it easier to stow while not in use. Essentially a pair of single-bladed lightsabers with their pommels conjoined by a series of hinges,[1] the user was still able to activate one[2] or both blades while the weapon was folded.[4]

During the Clone Wars, Jedi General Pong Krell's four-armed Besalisk anatomy allowed him to wield a pair of hinged double-bladed lightsabers, one with blue blades, the other green.[2] Rather than carry their traditional lightsaber pikes, some Jedi Temple Guards instead utilized yellow-bladed hinged lightsabers.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Pong Krell['s] lightsaber design introduces something new to the Jedi arsenal. Though double-ended lightsabers had been seen before—most famously wielded by Darth Maul—Krell's are hinged, allowing him to more easily stow them on his belt."

Hinged double-bladed lightsabers first appeared in "Darkness on Umbara," the seventh episode in the fourth season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated television series,[2] which first aired on October 28, 2011.[6] Rey was shown wielding a red-bladed hinged lightsaber in footage of the upcoming 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker that debuted at D23 Expo's Walt Disney Studios panel on August 24, 2019.[4]
