One Replicas Obi Arena Lightsaber Hilt Review | Clan Saber

The One Replicas Obi Arena Lightsaber Hilt is a custom saber based on the lightsaber hilt that Obi-Wan Kenobi uses during the arena battle in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (Obi-Wan’s lightsaber had been confiscated from him earlier in the story, so the Jedi provide him with a different one).

The One Replicas Obi Arena lightsaber is a clan saber, which is a more a generic and obscure Prequel Trilogy lightsaber design. One Replicas touts the lightsaber as the most screen accurate Obi-Wan arena lightsaber on the market.

The hilt features three main pieces: the emitter/blade holder, main body and the vented pommel. The pieces are threaded and removable. The vented pommel is comprised of two pieces: the main pommel body and the pommel insert.

The hilt is metallic silver color in overall with gorgeous black grooves dispersed throughout the hilt. Several thick and thin grooves encircle the hilt horizontally. A few small black rectangles add a precise, geometric sensibility to the design.

The removable blade holder is primarily made of brass, which adds a burst of color to a mostly silver and black colored hilt. The beautiful red anodized buttons add additional color. The red buttons are function and have tactile switches on the bottom of them. Moving down the hilt, the lower part of the body features a black Covertec wheel near the bottom of the hilt. Finally, the vented pommel caps off the end of the hilt.

The lightsaber hilt is empty and hollow on the inside–Obi Arena could be assembled and displayed as a static piece or installed with electronics. It’s designed to accommodate a 1 inch diameter blade. The hilt includes an aluminum heatsink for installers as well.

One Replicas is a custom saber company based in Spain. The company sells empty hilts, including a ‘slimmed down’ Super Stunt line, along with lightsaber parts.
