The double-bladed sword was a melee weapon that predated the use of the modern vibroblade and vibrosword. Based in part on the quarterstaff, a weapon of earlier origins, the double-bladed sword consisted of two blades set at opposite ends of an oversized hilt.

Somewhat ungainly because of the extra weight in the blades, the double-bladed sword required more strength and finesse to wield than conventional blades or quarterstaves, but it was remarkably effective in melee combat when used by an expert. Wookiee Warblades were one type of double bladed sword.
