|Usage and history|
Guard shoto (also refered to as "lightsaber tonfa") was a rare perpendicular-gripped type of short lightsaber with a secong handle sticking from the main hilt at 90 degrees. Though it could be gripped by either hilt, when wielded by the perpendicular handle, it was especially useful at blocking other lightsabers. The only known users of these in the Jedi VS Sith universe was Steffo Rancis.
