History of Darksaber
The Darksaber goes way back to the era that was before the Dark Times. It was the time of Tarre Vizsla, who was the first Mandalorian to become a Jedi Knight. Tarre Vizsla was the one who created this one-of-a-kind lightsaber, which had a flat and dark blade exuberating swirling energy.
Even though not much is known about Tarre Vizsla, we do know that he was an esteemed figure on Mandalore, who later became one of its most adored rulers. His legacy was so highly regarded that the dark saber, which was created by him, became a symbol of leadership and power. The Mandalorians rallied behind leaders who wielded the Darksaber with their full support and trust.
The “Trials of the Darksaber” episode in the Star Wars Rebels sheds some light on the history of the Darksabers. During this episode, Rau told Kanan Jaarus:
“Legend tells that it was created over 1,000 years ago by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian ever inducted into the Jedi Order. After his passing, the Jedi kept the saber in their temple. That was, until members of House Vizsla snuck in and liberated it.”
Once the Old Republic era came to an end, the history of the Darksaber became more convoluted and elaborate. To understand it better, let’s go through the different eras of history that included this iconic weapon.
The dark saber stayed with the House Vizsla until the eventful days of the Clone Wars. Pre Vizsla, who fought against Duchess Satine’s pacifist canon of Mandalore, wielded the black blade against both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Maul in order to return the planet to its warrior roots.
Pre Vizsla boasted to Obi-Wan Kenobi:
“This lightsaber was stolen from your Jedi temple by my ancestors during the fall of the Old Republic. Since then, many Jedi have died upon its blade.”
Pre Vizsla, however, was killed by Maul in the Clone Wars episode “Shades of Reason, which made Maul the rightful owner of the Darksaber. In Maul’s hands, the Darksaber indeed became a vicious weapon. He used the Darksaber for his own dark purposes.
With it, he killed Duchess Satine and fought against Darth Sidious. He also fought off many Jedi Masters before the dark saber came to rest on Dathomir during the Age of the Empire.
Age of Empire
Darth Maul kept the Darksaber until it came into the possession of Sabine Wren, Ezra Bridger, and Kanan Jarrus. The three warriors took the weapon away from Dathomir, where it went into the possession of the Emperor’s Hand.
Sabine later fought against the Hand and regained the dark saber. She finally gave it to Bo-Katan Kryze, who ultimately lost it during the Empire’s Great Purge of the Mandalorians. From there, the dark saber found its way to Moff Gideon until he came into the path of Din Djarin. Here is how it happened:
- Bo-Katan battled the Empire and lost. He also lost hold of the dark saber, and had to run out of Mandalore and go into hiding.
- Moff Gideon was the one who then ended up with the Dark light saber after defeating Bo-Katan. He kept the dark lightsaber all the way from the Imperial era into the New Republic era.
- Moff Gideon later lost the Darksaber to the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin during their duel.
The Mandalorian’s Darksaber Explained
The Mandalorian’s Darksaber was an ancient black-bladed lightsaber with a uniquely shorter blade than most lightsabers. The Darksaber featured a crystal that acted as a conduit for Force energy. It was able to conduct the wielder’s thoughts and actions, carrying them to the blade’s current of power. As a result, the blade often produced an electrical effect in response to the intense emotions of the owner.
It featured an angular pommel, handguard, and slit-shaped blade emitter, all of which were made out of beskar. The sound emitted by the Darksaber’s blade was also higher in pitch than other lightsabers.
Darksaber Blade: The Darksaber emitted a flat blade reminiscent of a traditional sword and was a bit shorter than a normal lightsaber blade.
Darksaber Hilt: The darksaber had a jagged, angular hilt design.
Here is a table to further explain the features of the Mandalorian’s darksaber:
|Hilt Shape||Straight and rectangular|
|Blade Type||Thin and curved to form a pointed edge|
|Blade Length||90.932 cm|
|Blade Width||7.112 cm|
|Blade Depth||3.4554 cm|
The appearance of Black Bladed Lightsaber
The Lightsaber is the symbolic and most iconic weapon of the Star Wars galaxy. The long sword-like weapon with bright and electrifying colors emitting from it is one of the most powerful weapons in the galaxy far, far away. However, it became even more magnificent when Tarre Vizsle decided to build a lightsaber black in color – the dark saber.
Well, the Darksaber is essentially a lightsaber, but there are various significant differences between the two. When you first look at a dark lightsabersaber, you will find it to be both familiar and different from a lightsaber.
As it glows and retracts just like a standard lightsaber, it very clearly appears to be a type of lightsaber, but it has some stark differences. Firstly, the most obvious difference is the color. The dark saber is dark black, unlike any other lightsaber. In addition, the blade also ends in a more prominently tapered point, just like a sword. On the other hand, the traditional lightsabers come to a more delicate and symmetrical end.
Although the dark saber has all the features and accessories of a lightsaber, it has a badass vibe attached to it, which lacks in a regular lightsaber. The black color and the sizzling white edge give it an aura that is sharper, more intimidating, and more solid-looking to the enemies. The dark lightsaber is also flatter and shorter than traditional lightsaber blades.
However, those are only the visual difference. The dark saber is unique from all the other lightsabers because it is constructed with both Jedi elements and Mandalorian originality. That’s because when it was built for the first time by Tarre Vizsla, he was a Mandalorian. Tarre Vizsla became the first Mandalorian to ever be included in the Jedi order. So, the unique blend of Jedi technology and Mandalorian heritage is what makes the dark saber one-of-a-kind.

The first Darksaber was created by the Mandalorian Jedi Knight, Tarre Vizsle. Tarre Vizsla was a Mandalorian Jedi. It was incumbent upon him to make his own saber, like all other Jedis before him. He had to find a kyber crystal that would represent his own true self. The crystal would channel his inner powers and vibes. The crystal that suited him and he chose to make his saber was a unique one. When the lightsaber was forged from it, it turned out to be black. Thus the Black Darksaber came into being.
The characters who lost the Darksaber include:
- Tarre Vizsla
- Pre Vizsla
- Darth Maul
- Sabine Wren
- Bo-Katan Kryze
- Moff Gideon

Yes, the Darksaber is a black lightsaber with a black-colored blade. There are special crystals. A jedi chooses the crystal that speaks of his power and channels the inner energy. The chosen crystal determines the color of the blade. The black blade is no different than an ordinary saber. The additional power comes from the authority that it wields.
There is only one black lightsaber, which is the Darksaber. It was forged by crystal chosen by Tarre Vizsle and hence no other person can have the same color, as the crystal determines the blade color.
No, Darksabers are not only used by siths. In fact, it was built by Tarre Vizsle, who eventually became a Jedi Knight. Darksaber by no means anything evil. The color black wields the power of authority and hence has that power. It’s power are very similar to the power of any other lightsaber.

Maul tried to harness the power of the dark saber with his red saber but failed and hence lost the darksaberwhen he was tortured with Force lightning.
