Game Notes: The split saber can be used as two lightsabers as normal (both acting as normal lightsabers), or as a double bladed lightsaber (+1D to Parry skill rolls), or even just as a normal lightsaber.

Description: A split saber was a type of double-bladed lightsaber that could split into two separate lightsabers. During the High Republic Era, the Jedi Keeve Trennis owned a double-bladed lightsaber that she split into its component single blades for storage while not fighting. Asajj Ventress, an assassin who served the Sith Lord Count Dooku, owned a pair of curved-hilt lightsabers that could attach together at the hilt. However, she rarely wielded her weapons in this fashion, doing so only briefly during the Battle of Teth. The Imperial Inquisitor Sixth Brother's double-bladed spinning lightsaber could also split into two blades. During the Imperial Era, former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis wielded a split saber during his quest to try and rebuild the Jedi Order.

Split sabers were a model of double-bladed lightsaber that could be split into two single-bladed lightsabers, effectively being two normal lightsabers that could interlock their hilts together. As such, when wielded separately, the two halves of a split saber would appear as two usually-identical ordinary lightsabers.

History
During the High Republic Era, Jedi Knight Keeve Trennis used a green-bladed split saber. She normally fought with it in its double-bladed form, only splitting the hilt in order to store it on a bandolier otherwise.

Late in the Republic Era and during the Clone Wars, Asajj Ventress, an assassin and the apprentice of the Sith Lord Count Dooku, wielded a pair of curved-hilt lightsabers that could interlock at the hilt. However, Ventress rarely fought with her blades connected, preferring a dual-wielding style and only making use of her weapons' split saber style briefly during the Battle of Teth. Ventress used the blades until they were stolen by the fallen Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee as part of her efforts to frame Ahsoka Tano for the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar late in the Clone Wars, after which she replaced them with a single yellow lightsaber she acquired on the black market.

Early in the Imperial Era, the Inquisitor Sixth Brother wielded a double-bladed spinning lightsaber that was capable of also splitting into two separate blades. He attempted to use this feature of his weapon against Ahsoka Tano during the uprising on Raada, but she defeated him by causing his lightsaber to explode using the Force, killing Sixth Brother and allowing her to claim the kyber crystals for use in her new lightsabers.

After his lightsaber was destroyed on a visit to the planet Dathomir, the Padawan Cal Kestis built a split saber on Ilum to replace it.
