Eeth Koth Lightsaber Construction and History

The cylindrical Eeth Koth lightsaber hilt is 26.6 inches long and is comprised of a metal alloy. The lightsaber is equipped with a kyber crystal and emits a green blade.

Jedi Master and Jedi Council member Eeth Koth wields the lightsaber during the waning years of the Republic. During the Clone Wars, Koth uses the lightsaber to duel the formidable General Grievious. Grievious captures Koth and seizes his lightsaber. Adi Gallia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker rescue Eeth Koth and the Jedi Master manages to recover his confiscated lightsaber.

Eeth Koth is removed from the Jedi Council and subsequently leaves the Jedi Order. He is replaced on the Jedi Council by Jedi Master Agen Kolar. Koth goes into exile, becomes a priest in the Church of the Ganthic Enlightenment, and gets married and has a child with a woman named Mira.

Darth Vader and three Inquisitors locate Eeth Koth and his family. A duel ensues between Eeth Koth and Darth Vader. Vader ultimately impales Koth in the back. The Jedi Master’s lightsaber tumbles out of his hand as he dies. Vader takes Koth’s child, abducting the infant as a possible candidate for Project Harvester, an Imperial operation to capture young Force-sensitive individuals and turn them into Imperial agents.

Behind the Scenes

The Eeth Koth lightsaber first appears in Star Wars Canon in an episode of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series called “Grievous Intrigue” (2010). The Eeth Koth lightsaber first appears in Star Wars Legends in a flashback in the comic book Star Wars 11: Outlander, Part 5 (1999). The Eeth Koth lightsaber closely resembles the Kit Fisto lightsaber.

  1. Hi SaberSourcing, I might be wrong but you will find that Eeth Koth’s lightsaber made an appearance in The Phantom Menace where it hung on Mace Windu’s belt during the celebration scenes on Naboo. The reason being that Windu and Koth met up on an earlier mission but during a skirmish both were disarmed in an explosion and picked up each other’s saber in the aftermath. They used each other’s hilt through the battle but it wasn’t until months later (and explained in a retcon within Star Wars comics) that they met back up and were able to exchange the hilts back to their rightful owners. This was known as a Concordance of Fealty – a sign of implicit trust between the two Jedi. In reality the reason Samuel L. Jackson had Eeth Koth’s saber in TPM was down to continuity errors which also led to Jackson being photographed with Koth’s hilt for the TPM Visual Encyclopedia book (later reprints had edited pictures with Windu’s iconic black, silver and gold hilt replacing Koth’s)
