A curved-hilt lightsaber is a lightsaber hilt with a slight bend in its design, allowing the wielder to maneuver with a high level of precision and finesse during lightsaber combat. Since the hilt design lends itself to lightsaber combat, the curved-hilt lightsaber is sometimes referred to as a dueling lightsaber. Due to the bend in the hilt, a curved-hilt lightsaber may not deflect blaster bolts as easily or effectively as straight-hilt lightsaber designs.
Curved-Hilt Lightsabers in Star Wars Canon
Curved-hilt lightsabers were primarily used during The Clone Wars era. Count Dooku (Lord Tyrannus), an accomplished duelist, wielded a red-bladed curved-hilt lightsaber. Ahsoka Tano built a pair of white-bladed curve-hilt lightsabers, one full-length lightsaber and one shoto lightsaber. Asajj Ventress wielded a pair of red-bladed curved-hilt lightsabers that she wielded separately or occasionally joined together to form a double-bladed lightsaber.
