A lightsaber consists of a handle that produces an energy blade when activated. Lightsabers are individually crafted, and the size of the handle varies according to the user, with Yoda's lightsaber hilt being less than 20 cm in length, while Darth Maul's double lightsaber hilt was over 60 cm in length.  Similarly, the length of a lightsaber's blade varies depending on the needs of the user.

When activated, the lightsaber blade is rigid and "solid", allowing it to interact with solid objects and other forms of energy without noticeably bending.  Lightsabers are capable of cutting through most materials without significant resistance.  Dense materials and massive objects, like blast doors<ref>''[[Star Wars: The Phantom Menace]]''</ref>, will slow them down, but not stop them completely.  Lightsabre blades have not demonstrated any ability to "cut" through energy fields, such as other lightsabre blades or the [[force field]]s in the facilities beneath the royal palace at [[Theed]]<ref>''[[Star Wars: The Phantom Menace]]''</ref>. Interaction between a lightsabre blade and solid matter generates substantial heat: they typically cauterize wounds they inflict, and [[Qui-Gon Jinn]]'s lightsabre melted a substantial portion of a blast door on a [[Trade Federation]] [[Lucrehulk-class battleship|battleship]].
