Description and Lore:
Whether by thunderous hoof or speeder bike, the Kenshi of the Radiant Sphere will deliver swift justice to all who oppose the will of the force. These mounted swordsmen of the Sphere are perhaps the most storied warriors in all the galaxy. As such, they have no lack in weapon choices, but the select few Kenshi who can command the force require a lightsaber. For them, the Tsukenshido is their chosen companion.
Pronounced Soo-ken-shee-doe, this saber is a Crusader-class saber designed for mounted combat yet is equally capable when on foot. The large tsuba-style handguard atop the emitter ensures that the saber will never slide rearward in the hand when thrusting. The guard also provides excellent hand protection from strikes. Like all sabers designed for mobile assault, the Tsukenshido hilt is longer than usual, measuring a full 12 inches long. However, as any Kenshi can tell you, the extra length is not always desired, therefore the Tsukenshido hilt can be shortened by easily removing a section beneath the grip.
