Durable Lightsabers to Last a Long Time in Any Galaxy

The Star Wars universe is filled with durable lightsabers. When Darth Vader strikes down Obi-Wan Kenobi, his hilt doesn’t crack. Then, when Darth Vader cuts off the hand of Luke Skywalker in Cloud City, Luke’s lightsaber falls into a reactor shaft — and is durable enough to wind up in Rey’s hands many years later. Of course, there’s also the infamous Darksaber, the unique, ancient weapon of Mandalorian origin that has survived for millennia. All of these sturdy lightsabers have stood the test of time, and yours should too, especially if you want it to be battle-ready.

When you’re searching the cosmos for a duel-worthy lightsaber, durability should be a primary concern. You want a weapon that’s as sturdy as a block of carbonite, not something that could fall apart at any moment — the Kylo Ren lightsaber has a gorgeous crossguard design, but you don’t want a saber as unstable and volatile as his! The typical Star Wars lightsaber toy at a department store, or even a higher-priced Force FX replica, simply can’t handle the heat of dueling — they’re just display pieces. The best combat lightsabers have custom battle options and will be durable enough to withstand rigorous duels.

Why Do You Need a Durable Lightsaber?

Durable lightsabers give you the power to engage in epic clashes. While some collectors only want aesthetically pleasing pieces to engage in their fandom (and we definitely believe in the importance of aesthetics), others want battle-ready lightsabers for sparring or dueling, either competitively or as a hobby. That means you need a durable lightsaber that will be able to take a hit and continue to function and look great. Finding the most durable lightsaber comes down to two main factors:

  • Materials
  • Construction

What Makes for the Most Durable Lightsaber?

The best combat lightsabers are made with premium materials, like aircraft-grade aluminum. Additionally, truly durable lightsabers need to be constructed with absolute precision and attention to detail. For instance, a mass-market Star Wars lightsaber toy is likely to use cheap LEDs in the blade, which means there’s a good chance they’ll break when dueling. Lightsaber options from custom shops like UltraSabers know better — the light sources will be in the hilt for protection.

The hilt is another main point of interest for durable lightsaber construction. While a quality, duel-worthy blade is certainly a crucial element, the hilt is equally important. It needs to be made with sturdy materials to withstand dueling. The blade might be the main point of impact, but a lot of the force (not with a capital “F”) travels to the hilt, putting the electronic components and the chassis at risk. The most durable lightsaber will use heavy materials and be constructed in a way that protects the electronics during battle.
