I don't actually remember what his name was... but now that you mention it, I do remember. And even in legacy of the force, to combat Lumiya's lightwhip, luke builds a shorter lightsaber called a shoto. Incidentally... the pairing of a long blade with a short and the way he used them reminded me very much of the Japanese samurai warriors.. who on occasion used a katana with a wakazashi, a shortsword, in the other hand.

Hi,

I'd have to do more research, but I can think of another instance
where a Jedi student created a light saber that could double his blade
length. Do you remember in the Jedi Academy series the guy who Exar
Kune attempted to convert to the dark side before Kip?

At any rate he built a light saber that could double and I think
tripple his light sabers length, and gave Luke Skywalker a real
surprise in the bargon. Up until that point I don't believe the Star
Wars books really had discussed alternative designs for light sabers.

Of course, now that we have the Clone Wars era out in cartoon and
books we've had a chanse to observe several different light saber
designs using different lengths, colors, and handles themselves seamed
to be customized for an individual Jedi. This same thing seams to be
happening in the Knights of the Old Republic series too. So I'm sure
this trick with doubling blade length is bound to turn up again
somewhere.

Cheers!
