I don't see why two sabers wouldn't be allowed. Here's an example:

The only thing is ... carrying a lightsaber takes up one hand. Carrying two takes up both. If you can't put them away in your belt, you'll have no way of waving to the kids in parades or browsing stuff at events.

I don't know if it's an issue for you, I just know it would annoy me Razz

But if it's what you want, go for it! I absolutely love dual wielding, it looks awesome Smile I just find it impractical for events.

What I've done for dual-wielding, to keep one hand free, is carry one saber with the blade in and hang the other hilt from my belt with the blade removed. I've even seen a few people who have sewn a long, thin pocket on the inside of their robe to keep the extra blade handy.

I don't thing there is a rule for that, but you should aim for your weapon to be proportional to your height. One rule of thumb I heard once was that if the tip of the blade touches the ground, the top of the hilt should reach up about the same height as your navel. -for a standard saber.

Smaller sabers are sometime used for the off-hand, and some dual wielding prefer two smaller sabers.
And then there is light daggers, but I'm not sure about RL accepting those ...


I guess it would be easier if you find a stick with the length you want and pose for a picture with it in your hand. Then it's easier to see if it fits your body Smile

Green all the way, Thought Lukes Saber from ROTJ looked way cooler with a green blade

My lightsaber is green, but only because Kit Fisto's lightsaber is the only clan hilt produced and it is indeed green. I much prefer blue, and if I could figure out how to replace the green blade with a blue one I would be MUCH happier.

I wish they would produce Ki-Adi-Mundi's lightsaber; that one is my favorite.
