"The Saber of Darth Krall."
"What do you mean—"hmmm"?"
"I thought it would be spikier."
―Dooku and Sifo-Dyas, regarding the Saber of Darth Krall — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

The Saber of Darth Krall was a saber owned by the Sith Lord Darth Krall.[1] In 88 BBY,[2] Jedi Initiates Dooku and Sifo-Dyas snuck into the Bogan Collection, a forbidden vault of the Jedi Archives of the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant, and Dooku saw the Sith's saber. Sifo-Dyas, however, was not impressed by it and said that he thought it would have been spikier.[1] Around 231 BBY,[3] in a Force vision experienced by Jedi Knight Keeve Trennis, Darth Krall used a red lightsaber.[4]

The Heart of the Drengir arc of the High Republic comic series, in which the lightsaber appears, picks up several months after the previous arc, and ends with the attack on Valo that occurs in The Rising Storm; thus, Heart of the Drengir takes place concurrently to The Rising Storm and in approximately the same year.
