Are there any examples (preferably in canon but Legends is also acceptable) of a lightsaber featuring an extending hilt? What I'm looking for is perhaps some kind of telescoping mechanism such that the saber can have a standard-ish length hilt which extends out to be more like a naginata/nagamaki or similar real-world weapon.

I'm not looking for a folding hilt, such as with "Dark Rey's" folding saber staff in The Rise of Skywalker.

You might be looking for something like Senya's lightsaber pike from Star Wars: The Old Republic. It doesn't compact as much as a standard lightsaber, being more like a double-bladed lightsaber in length, but it telescopes from a more compact form into a longer pike-like form.

    This is exactly the sort of thing I was hoping existed! I'll leave the question open a bit longer just in case anyone else has a more comprehensive answer or a variety of examples

I think sabrecanes should qualify.

The primary purpose of the sabercane was to act as a concealed weapon, a convenient place to hide a lightsaber. Two of the sabercanes observed, Haazen's and Tera Sinube's, both featured the lightsaber connected to the shaft of the cane at the emitter, necessitating the removal of the shaft to wield the lightsaber.

Though it was used for concealing the lightsabre, it could be later be removed and then use it as a normal lightsabre, so it qualifies as a an 'extention' for the lightsabre. Fandom sabercane
