    Does anyone know of a depiction of Darth Bane's lightsaber?

    There was an image in the encyclopedia, but it was not the 'hook handled' curved version given to Bane by Kas'im and used throughout his tenure as Dark Lord of the Sith.

    Even on the front cover of Rule of Two the handle was straight which is slightly annoying.

    There was an image on the Wook entitled 'final duel on Ambria' but its obscure and more club-like, rather than curved?

    Any help would be great, or even better hopefully the next essential guide to characters will depict it.

    Generally speaking, Drew's retcon of the blade into a hooked hilt is something most of the artists either don't know about or seem content to ignore. You've already made reference to the only image of it that I'm aware of:

    I don't know what you mean by "obscure and more club like, rather than curved", though. The above is just a curved hilt. Which is exactly what you were asking for. :p
