  Amphistaff - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
Amphistaffs were the primary anti-personnel weapons of the Yuuzhan Vong.
Amphistaffs were, quite possibly, one of the most durable objects known, as not even lightsabers could cut through them.
The origins of the amphistaff possibly date back as far as the Bantam/Dark Horse invasion storyline, where the (non-humanoid) invaders were to be armed with a bladed, anti-lightsaber weapon.

 TheForce.Net - Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia - Entry Listing
Amphistaffs were literally grown in low groves, emerging in threes from a deep-rooted, leathery polyp.
Even as juveniles, amphistaffs were strongly carnivorous, and their voracious feeding served to nourish the amphistaffs as well as the polyp on which they grew.
As the young amphistaff grew larger, it became too large for the polyp to support and broke itself away from the main plant.

Amphistaffs are the Primary anti-personnel weapons of the Yuuzhan Vong.
In addition to their default staff/spear configuration, amphistaffs can be wielded as a whip, wrapping around a target then biting it.
Although amphistaff venom is far more effective when injected, the venom can usually kill the target by coming into contact with their skin.

In addition to their default staff/spear configuration, amphistaffs can be wielded as a whip, wrapping around a target then biting it or prompted to spray deadly toxins at its victim.
Another form of attack for an amphistaff is to turn into a blade that is an atom thick that its master can wield.
Once the master of an amphistaff is deceased, the staff will continue attacking the assailant until either of them is dead.

 Amphistaff Question - Wizards Community
I would guess about 5 hardness and 10 wp (although I wouldn't be surprised if it was in the 10 hardness and 10 wp category; but I just hope it isn't 10 hardness and 20 wp, as that is quite a bit to sunder in one blow).
Well, the reason Jedi's had a harder time sundering amphistaffs was because the weapons were organic, so lightsabers didn't ignore the hardness like they do with a normal weapon.
So it wasn't that the amphistaffs were so much tougher than a metallic weapon, it was just that they were better suited to resisting lightsabers.
