Saberz Project RH Lightsaber, a custom saber, is a niche design that’s inspired by the stunt hilt wielded by Ewan McGregor against Hayden Christiansen during their training for dueling in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The hilt is shown during behind-the-scenes footage of lightsaber stunt training. Hilt design is essentially a very simplified version of the TPM/AOTC Obi-Wan Kenobi lightsaber hilt. Saberz offers Project RH as a hilt only for display or as a hilt bundled with a Nova carbon stunt blade. Saberz released the hilt in mid October 2022. Hilt is not designed to accept electronics.

Project RH is inspired by the behind-the-scenes stunt hilt that Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) wields while training for a Revenge of the Sith duel with Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader). Hilt breaks down into four main pieces: emitter, body, notched “salt shaker” style pommel and custom M10 screw. The middle part of the hilt is very basic and blank. The emitter section flares out in the style of a thin neck saber. The “salt shaker” pommel somewhat resembles the Obi-Wan Kenobi TPM/AOTC lightsaber hilt, but features slimmed down, ergonomic pommel cubes. The Project RH hilt may also be bundled with the optional thin Nova Carbon Blade, a stunt blade.
Note that the hilt only version is intended for display and NOT designed for electronics or larger diameter blades than the thin Nova Carbon Blade. The balance point of the hilt with Nova Carbon Blade is the forward part of the choke point below the flared emitter. The balance point/choke point location make the hilt favorable for spinning and maneuvering!
Saberz packages the Project RH lightsaber in a microfiber bag.
