your own personal lightsaber

what would your personal lightsaber look like?
i have read the jedi handbook and looked at all these pics and stuff and have been thinking about what lightsaber i would actually wield should i live in the starwars universe.

firstly, the colour of my blade woud definitely be either white or blue/cyan.
as for the hilt, i would try and keep a single theme, ive been thinking a lot about wood and steel hilt.

as for the shape and actual size to suit my style, i don't really know, since im tall and large i dont think i could pull off those ninja-esque styles, i think in reality i would use one of the first three jedi styles that are simple, though i would try and train in the others.

i think i would go for a fairly long hilt and long single blade with a sleek design, with like a tree knot at one end that hasn't been smoothed out.

i should try and draw it some time...

also i think i would try and pick up some time of specialised weapon. im always a fan of battle axes and hammers in video games and if i had the chance i would totally try and pick it up to use in combat.

nowhere does it actually say a jedi cant use a blaster so that could be a possibility

I've always liked sleek lightsabers that are smooth pieces of silvery metal. Something that is a mix between Mace Windu's and Palpatine's sabers perhaps. None of the clunky Obiwan Episode III sabers for me. Long enough to be held comfortably in a 2 handed grip for Ataru. I'm a fan of dark colors, so something with dark tones would be a must. The blade would either be a standard blue or a nice magenta (the same one as ingame). It would also have some sort of leather grips, as the cold of metal would not be pleasant. Can you imagine Palpatine's lightsaber on Hoth?

The hilt's leather grips would be curved just right to fit my hands, if that makes sense. Have it rounded on both ends of the leather grip (you can see what I'm talking about in the 6th saber from the bottom at that image). 2 grip parts, one for each hand on the lightsaber. If that wouldn't make a sleek lightsaber (bit bad at visualizing things sometimes), then just 1 curved grip.

You could use force lightning to heat the handle :P

My lightsaber...

I'm a fan of the dark core sabers, so I'd probably have a blue saber with a black core for the blade, slightly longer than one meter as I'm a larger person at 6'3" and I prefer a longer reach. The outer casing would be made of ebony wood inlaid with some silvery metal like platinum. The handle would be long enough for single or two handed use, sort of like a bastard-sword. I'd go thinner than what the game proposes, something like the custom saber in thickness.

I'd go with a dual saber set... but the offhand one would have a large cortosis hilt guard in the manner of a main gauche. The offhand blade would be shorter as well, being designed to overpower/short out another saber.

As for hilts... fitted to my grip, and ornately tooled. Color crystals would be a deep blue, almost in the ultraviolet range.

I would probably have a bright red standard lightsaber.

I actually was able to make my "dream" lightsaber in KoTOR II.

A double blade lightsaber with a silver crystal. If I was allowed to customize the hilt it would have to be a dark matte-black leather where one would hold the blade, with the ends of either side being the iconic steel gray along with the middle part of the blade.

I would construct a double-blade with black, banded steel grips with inlaid cortosis knot work. The projectors would be lined with spiked flanges, with jeweled ignition switches. One switch would be a two-way toggle single ignition, and the other a single-toggle dual ignition.

The blades would be magenta, because I simply love that color, and projected with minimal halo.

Right-hand Sabre would have a dark-golden 120cm (48") blade with a 30cm (12")-long 3cm (1-1/4")-diameter hilt in heavily-knurled titanium (dark-grey metal). Left-(off-) hand Sabre hilt would be same diameter and texture, but maybe 15cm (6")-long and half-length blade in dark green

I would want a pair of double purple bladed Guard shoto lightsabers. they would have the ability to be rotated via the force (hence me becoming a walking chainsaw). the hilts would be black, but also gold-plated.
