To fix saber damage and take away the Str component, why not just re-skin the Chainsaw from the core book? It even already has a rule for accidentally chopping your own bits off.
Spot on! Though i'd have an Edge that ignored the fumble part, ie Lightsaber training.
It's exactly what I used in my Savage SW sessions, and it worked perfectly. The "str dumping" could be an issue so; but i guess it's a small price to pay for simplicity. We also house ruled that anyone facing a lightsaber (without a lightsaber at hand) is considered "Unarmed", giving a nice +2 to lightsaber attack; it fits well the "cut-through-anything" part of the lightsaber.
And we created a new Edge, "Jedi training", which removes the fumble possibility of the chainsaw and allows to use the Defense action against ranged attacks.
