When it comes to the most unique and iconic lightsabers used in the Star Wars universe, Darth Vader’s lightsaber just has to make the list. This red, shadowy saber is what Darth Vader wielded during some of the most impactful duels and events of the shows original trilogy. So what is it that makes this lightsaber unique, and why do you need to own one?

Notable Facts About the Lightsaber

Its Creation – Darth Vader actually got the idea for his hilt from a Jedi (Kirak Infil’a) that he defeated. After defeating the Jedi Kirak Infil’a, Vader took his lightsaber and impacted its kyber crystal, causing it to turn red. He used the lightsaber for a while until its hilt got destroyed on a mission to Cabarria.

With the former Jedi’s hilt destroyed, Vader committed to designing his own hilt to hold his red kyber crystal and on a journey to Coruscant, he constructed the new lightsaber that is well known today. 

It Used two Types Of Crystals- Vader’s lightsaber made use of two types of power crystals throughout its lifetime. The first one, which was a synth-crystal was actually an artificial product that wasn’t typically used to power lightsabers because of their unpredictable nature, but the Sith engineers managed to find a way to alter the crystals so they could channel Vader’s use of the force. The second crystal was more typically used for lightsabers and it came from the Adega system.

Its Red Colour Is A Product Of A Sith Ritual Known as “Bleeding”

In order to make their lightsaber blades red, the Sith Lords engaged in a ritual known as “bleeding”. It involved pouring negative emotions (hate, anger, rage) into their individual kyber crystals through a psychic connection until the crystal turned red.

Vader Could Alter The Blade’s Length

Because Vader’s lightsaber was actually a dual-phase lightsaber, he could alter its size for better efficiency during battle.

It Was Destroyed Along With Palpatine

Darth Vader lost his lightsaber to the void of the Death Star II’s core after Luke Skywalker cut off his hand during a duel. Not long after, Vader destroyed the evil Emperor Palpatine, by throwing him into that same pit before becoming Anakin Skywalker once more.

Vader Wielded the Lightsaber in Some Epic Battles and Duels

After its creation, Vader wielded his lightsaber in a lot of battles and duels; some of the notable ones include; Mon Cala Campaign, the duel on Malachor where he fought an epic duel with Ahsoka Tano, who was his former Padawan learner (back when he was Anakin Skywalker), the battle of Scarif where he defeated a group of rebels, the duel with his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: A New Hope, the duel on Cloud City where he reveals himself as Luke’s father and the battle of Endor where he defeats Emperor Palpatine and loses his lightsaber.
