Well, we have a lightsaber and a lightwhip... could we call this a lightflail? lol. Because to my knowledge, there aren't any true weapons like that... two examples come to mind. The whip chain, which was used by shaolin monks way back, and the ara... which was a flexible sword developed by the rajputs.

Right. A metre seems to be the standard for lengths... as for doubling, the only one I've sceen able to do that is Coran Horn. Is there anyone else who can double thelength of their blade?

Hi Clement,

Hmmm..Sounds interesting. Anything is possible I suppose. What would
someone call this new weapon?

As to saber length if you look at some of the Star Wars books they
typically describe a light saber as being a meter in length. Some
special designs can double that, but I think the average is about one
meter or so.
