A lightsaber is an energy blade weapon from the star-wars franchise used by the Jedi Order, the Sith, and other Force-sensitive individuals. They are often wielded in a manner similar to swords or pikes, and can cut/burn through nearly anything other than the blade of another lightsaber. The glowing colors of the blade are sometimes distinctive to a particular wielder. When two lightsabers strike each other during a parry, a unique "electrical" buzzing/sizzling sound is made.
