A long-handled lightsaber was constructed by the Quermian Jedi Master Yarael Poof. Poof built this lightsaber, which he powered using a yellow crystal. Later in his life, he would use a sapphire crystal to power it.
Though a very skilled swordsman, Master Poof rarely needed to brandish his weapon and fight, preferring negotiating and peacefull outcomes, much like fellow Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. In 27 BBY, Ashaar Khorda threatened to destroy one of the key Republic worlds using the Infant of Shaa. Poof used his long weapon to confront Khorda on Coruscant but the Jedi Master died after being stabbed by Khorda.
