I assume the extra blades act like a hilt or crossguard that exist on a real swords and sabers.  They're suppose to defend against a blade from sliding down onto your hand.

But since lightsabers don't slide off each other, it's pointless. At least Maul's and Dooku's gimmicks made sense.

Obi-Wan did it to General Grievous in Episode 3 - so it is possible to vertically slide down a lightsaber in contact with another lightsaber.

A lot of things about lightsabers are unrealistic. Their existence is unrealistic.

Pretty much this, just assume it works, it's way easier.

Remember how Vader cut Luke's hand off? That's what those guards are for.

Judging from how unstable the lightsaber beam looks - the crystal inside the lightsaber is hand made and imperfect, as if it was homemade. All Sith crystals are created through a process and are manufactured unlike the Jedi crystals - this Sithlord might have tried to replicate the crystal creation process by hand. Unstable crystals cause more damage however can short out randomly - which could be dangerous in a duel.

 

The design of the hilt itself looks similar to how some of the Sithlord's hilts look in Knights of the Old Republic and The Old Republic. I know that Disney said anything in the EU is non-canon - however from what I read it only counts for anything that's set after Episode VI. The Old Republic Era takes place 3000 years before Obi-Wan was even born, so any events taking place then shouldn't have any effects on what happens in this film.

 

The "Old Technology" part is referring to how this Sith lord might be thousands of years old, awakened and is now storming around the galaxy causing havoc and their lightsaber reflects this - the lightsaber could be over thousands of years old.

Finn, Rey, Kylo and Poe? Could the names be more Emo? I almost expect them to cry in the corner while cutting themselves with a lightsaber.

You could put Han and Leia among those names and they would fit.

I like those names. One my biggest complaints with the now defunct EUrip was that some of the names they came up with sounded ridiculous. Han, Luke, Leia are real names. Finn, Rey, and Poe sound like decent names. MeetraLorn, and Etain? Not so much.

Names are not spoilers around here. At least not the way they've been shown.

I'll take this opportunity to say let's make sure real spoilers are tagged. Even if they're widely publicized. Like (hypothetically) if entertainment weekly broke news that Darth Vader would appear in the new movies, that should probably be tagged.
