Description: A type of double-bladed lightsaber had a hinged hilt that could fold in half, making it easier to stow while not in use. Essentially a pair of single-bladed lightsabers with their pommels conjoined by a series of hinges, the user was still able to activate one or both blades while the weapon was folded.

Rather than carry their traditional lightsaber pikes, some Jedi Temple Guards instead utilized yellow-bladed hinged lightsabers.
