Star Wars Lore Edit

A shiim was a more minute wound to an opponent by the edge of a lightsaber's blade. It was usually considered inferior and a sign of desperation or struggle against a potent enemy; on the other hand, a shiim is still very painful, and a deliberately inflicted wound of this sort could instead be interpreted as a taunt by a vastly more skilled opponent.

Count Dooku performed this to disable Obi-Wan Kenobi during their duel on Geonosis.

Luke Skywalker inflicted a shiim upon Darth Vader's shoulder during their duel in Cloud City, causing the Sith Lord to become enraged and bring the battle to a swift end.
