The weapon consists of a blade of pure plasma emitted from a hilt and suspended in a force containment field. The field contains the immense heat of the plasma, protecting the wielder, and allowed the blade to keep its shape. The hilt is almost always self-fabricated by the wielder to match his or her specific needs, preferences and style. Due to the weightlessness of plasma and the strong gyroscopic effect generated by it, lightsabers require a great deal of strength and dexterity to wield, and it is extremely difficult – and dangerous – for the untrained to attempt using. However, in the hands of an expert of the Force, the lightsaber is a weapon to be greatly respected and feared. To wield a lightsaber is to demonstrate incredible skill and confidence, as well as masterful dexterity and attunement to the Force.
