So I know it’s been defended and everything (I’ve even watched a video or two demonstrating how what I’m about to say is wrong), but I got the Kylo Ren lightsaber over Christmas, and definitely would’ve cut my hand off if it were real (because of the exhaust crossguards). I get that you’re supposed to hold it more like a broadsword (compared to the more katana like single blade sabers), but I would really have to be aware of how I was holding the saber before using it in one handed combat. I guess Kylo probably has had some different lightsaber training than traditional JedI to compensate for the broadsword-i-ness of his lightsaber, but I’m surprised the dude hasn’t lost a hand yet the amount of times he loses control and gets angry with that thing.
