    Would you like to learn the Double-Bladed fighting style, with blades like Darth Maul used in Episode 1? Do you think saber staves are superior over single or dual lightsabers?

    Saber-staff, or double-bladed lightsabers, are a difficult weapon to learn. You can't perform the majority of staff techniques with it, and the length of the blades shuts off a lot of moves.

    The closest real-life weapon to a saber-staff is called a Heaven and Earth Blade, which is a double-bladed hook sword. It's a very exotic weapon used in some Chinese styles and the moves used in Episode I seem to be based on it.

    Even knowing this, the saber-staff blades are much longer than the blades of the Heaven and Earth Blade, and the hilt is shorter.

    Damn that video is pretty neat dude. I would like to see that incorporated into saber combat

    Nice info. Yeah, the Heaven and Earth Blade looks much shorter then an actual saber staff. But then again, a saber staff would probably be much lighter then a double-bladed hook sword? Maybe that would make it easier to wield?
