What about the Darksaber? Isn't that a type?

Answer

Good catch. As interesting as the black-bladed Darksaber was, it seems to be one-of-a-kind, not really a "type" of lightsaber. Still, it's a cool weapon that responds to its wielder's emotional state.

Like the Elder Wand from Harry Potter, the Darksaber is known for being passed down only after its former owner is killed in battle, a fittingly blood-stained legacy for such a savage device.
