The new Energy Sword
The Type-2 energy sword is a vast improvement over the old model. It is longer, and holds a higher capacity charge, allowing it to be used for more extended conflicts. While it does weigh a bit more, this weapon is superior in every way to the Type-1 Energy sword.
While still maintaining the general teardrop appearance of the Type-1, the Type-2's tip is closer together, and the end extending from the hilt is a couple centimeters wider, to allow for better defense. This was designed by Sanghelios crafters after Jiralhanae and Spartans used the old energy sword to fight Sangheili warriors. Their effectiveness drove the need to change the ceremonial weapon from a purely offensive weapon in to a combination of offense and defense. The success has thus far been questionable, as Sangheili are not used to crafting defensive weapons.
