The Obi-Wan Apprentice lightsaber is comprised of a CNC machined aluminum hilt that measures 10.5 inches long and weighs about 1 lb 6.7 oz. The design features a flared, disk-shaped emitter and bronze colored neck. A knurled metallic red thumbscrew attaches over the shroud. The shroud covers the deep v-groove hilt body that encompasses about two thirds of the hilt length.
The black grooves add depth and dimension to the hilt. The “peak” of each groove forms a flat silver ring. A black Covertec wheel attaches to the lower part of the hilt. A notched pommel area caps off the end of the hilt.
The Luuke Obi-Wan Apprentice lightsaber is a static display prop only and may not accept an electronics installation. The overall hilt design feels like a mashup of the Obi-Wan Kenobi TPM/AOTC lightsaber and the Luke Skywalker ROTJ lightsaber.
