The Obi-Wan Apprentice Saber Kit is comprised of: a blade holder (designed to accommodate a 1 inch diameter blade), copper and aluminum heatsink, brass M4 accent screw greeblie, sleeve, main body, and pommel.  A anodized black aluminum Covertec wheel attaches to the hilt with a black steel screw as well. The inside diameter (ID) of the hilt is 26 mm and flare out to 30 mm in the pommel (may accept a 28mm speaker).

The two-toned aluminum hilt is primarily metallic silver in color with some anodized black accents. The hilt features an Original Trillogy style flanged emitter (similar to the Obi-Wan ANH saber and the Luke ROTJ saber) and deep black horizontal grooves in the neck area and lower grip section of the hilt. A ‘sink knob’/’gear tooth’ style vented pommel caps off the end of the hilt.

Overall, the hilt design appears to be somewhat of a mashup of the Obi-Wan Kenobi TPM/AOTC lightsaber with the Obi-Wan Kenobi ROTS/ANH lightsaber. The hilt design also looks a bit similar to descriptions of the Anakin Solo lightsaber and Jacen Solo lightsaber in Star Wars Legends.

Force Relics is a Belgium based custom saber company. The company sells empty hilt kits, installed sabers, and lightsaber parts.
