Dooku's lightsaber

What's with his saber? It's like that old gun they used in colonial days.

It's like an old-style fencing foil. Also, did you notice that for the most part he dueled with one hand? Pretty impressive, until Yoda came in and blew him outta the water!

If you noticed, when he began his battle with Yoda, he saluted like one does in fencing. Interesting...

it is a bit similar to fencong...but the bent shape makes it easier on the wrists for foward attacks...if u notice his slicing and indirect attacks were broad but his direct attacks were very fast and very easily done....this is mostly because he is strong but the lightsaber does make it a little easier...

Yeah, it seems like if he got hit with a left or right attack, the lightsaber would try to spin around towards his head....seems like blocking with it (or hitting for that matter) would actually be harder on the wrists....just my opinion though.

I'm reading through a lot of posts and I see that a lot of these questions surround small issues that were covered quite throughly in the book... which makes me quite happy that I read it prior to seeing the movie.

Anyway, in the book, during Obi-Wan's visit to the Jedi Archives to locate Kamino, he speaks at length with Jocasta Nu regarding Count Dooku. Unfortunately, this was completely lost in the movie. She explains that there are two types of saber fighters - classic fencers and modern sword style, but the former is all but dead because it does little to block current day conventional weaponry. Dooku, however, preferred the classic style and stubbornly held on to it, hence the shape of his lightsaber hilt.

Does the book also go more in-depth into the mystique of the Lost Twenty?

Not really.. it does talk about it more, but doesn't go very indepth with it.. It explains a little better what exactly the Lost Twenty is, but not who the other 19 were or why any of them but Dooku left.
