This is one of the most awesome things I've ever seen in this game. I especially love the way it looks during a melee flourish animation.
On a side note, I've also come across an npc using one. It was one of the Mandalorians on Dantooine, and it was rather glitchy looking/acting. It was, of course, not found on his corpse.
In any case, thanks for giving us such a fantastic toy to play with.
