Luke Skywalker Lightsaber

EVERYTHING ABOUT LUKE SKYWALKER LIGHTSABER

Like his alluring and formidable demeanor, Luke Skywalker's lightsaber is an essential component of who he is. Not only was Luke Skywalker's green lightsaber his first creation, it was also his second.

Luke Skywalker, a Jedi Knight, fashioned a green lightsaber that is recognized as a Jedi lightsaber for himself during the Galactic Civil War. It was also called Luke Skywalker's lightsaber or Luke Skywalker's second lightsaber in popular culture. Skywalker made a substitute after misplacing his father's lightsaber on Cloud City. It was designed to resemble Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi's third lightsaber, but instead of producing a blue blade like Kenobi's, its kyber crystal generated a green one.

Luke Skywalker completed the "Lightsaber Formation Trial" to become a Jedi by making his own lightsaber. The green color of this lightsaber is meant to symbolize a Jedi who prioritizes force over combat or diplomacy.

Luke hides Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber in R2-D2. He gives it to Darth Vader while trying to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt. Luke hopes to bring Anakin back.

Technical and Physical Parameters

  • Hilt length: 11 inches (28 cm) is reasonable for a lightsaber, offering a decent compromise between use and fighting efficacy. 
  • Hilt material: alloy metals and salvaged materials suggest that this lightsaber was made with ingenuity, possibly in a remote or temporary location. 
  • Crystal type: The conventional lightsaber crystal, known as a kyber, is tuned to the Force and controls the blade's color and other characteristics. 
  • Design: Ben Kenobi's lightsaber served as inspiration, implying a link to Obi-Wan Kenobi's original lightsaber design, which was then given to Luke Skywalker and Rey. 
  • Blade color: Green is the color of Obi-Wan Kenobi's lightsaber and is also frequently linked to a deep bond with the living Force. 
  • Blade type: Green plasma blade, in keeping with the hue of the Kyber crystal that was employed and drawing design cues from Ben Kenobi's lightsaber. 
  • Hilt shape: Cylindrical, a classic and ergonomic shape that allows for a comfortable grip and efficient handling during combat.

Construction Information

  • Creator: The main character of the first three Star Wars films, Luke Skywalker, is crucial to the struggle against the Galactic Empire. 
  • Model: Lightsaber, which is a general term for the weapon used by Jedi and Sith, but does not specify a unique model.
  • Type: Single blade, the most common type of lightsaber used for combat and training.
  • Culture: Jedi Order, an ancient order of Force-sensitive warriors who follow the light side of the Force.
  • Construction date: According to 4ABY (After the Battle of Yavin), this lightsaber was created following the events of "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope." This date is important because it implies that by now Luke had started his journey as a Jedi Knight. 
  • Place of Construction: Luke's home planet, Tatooine, is where he first met Obi-Wan Kenobi, who would later serve as his tutor. 
  • Owners: Luke Skywalker and the attendants. The word "caretakers" is a little vague. Still, it might apply to anyone who owned the lightsaber after Luke, including family members or anyone who took on the duty of upholding the Jedi heritage. 

History of Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber

Luke Skywalker was given three different kinds of lightsabers during the course of the Star Wars saga: an LSW blue lightsaber, an LSW green lightsaber, and an LSW yellow lightsaber. 

Luke Skywalker's First Blue Lightsaber (Blue Blade)

This blue-bladed Jedi sword was used by Luke's father, Anakin Skywalker, during the Clone Wars. Vader lost a valuable weapon in the battle. After fighting Anakin's former disciple on Mustafar, Obi-Wan Kenobi took hold of Anakin's lightsaber and kept it on Tatooine for around twenty years.

The scavenger Rey became interested in the lightsaber after Maz Kanata added it to her collection of Jedi relics. After defeating Kylo Ren with it, she gave it back to Ahch-To and presented it to Luke. Rey snatched the old weapon for herself when he refused.

During the fight between Rey and Kylo, the lightsaber broke. Rey fixed it after finishing her Jedi training.

Luke, the son of Anakin, received the lightsaber from Obi-Wan; however, after Darth Vader cut his son's hand in Cloud City, Luke misplaced it. Luke made use of it when he first started his Jedi training. Luke wasn't told by Obi-Wan, nevertheless, that his father had changed into Darth Vader. Luke was using his father's lightsaber, which he had lost when the Sith Lord cut off his hand, to fight Vader on Cloud City. 

Luke Skywalker's Second Green Lightsaber (Green Blade)

In "The Empire Strikes Back," the fifth episode of Star Wars, Luke Skywalker lost both his right hand and his blue lightsaber. He then built his lightsaber, as all Jedis are supposed to do. Luke utilized the same techniques the Jedi have been using for years to make the green lightsaber on Tatooine.

He slew Jabba D. Tire's bodyguards with his green blade lightsaber on Tatooine to save Han Solo. After being defeated by Skywalker in their last lightsaber duel, Vader lost his lightsaber in the Battle of Endor. After the Galactic Civil War, Luke Skywalker retained his lightsaber while working to restore the Jedi Order.

Luke Skywalker, as the uncle of Padawan Ben Solo, noticed that Ben was showing dangerous signs of the Force. Instead of killing his student, Luke decided to use his lightsaber but not to harm him. Solo tried to kill Skywalker with his lightsaber because he thought his Master was going to kill him first. He saw Skywalker's green lightsaber and acted quickly.

After losing his nephew to the dark side, Skywalker took his lightsaber to the planet Ahch-To, where he lived in self-imposed exile and solitude. After Skywalker's death, the indigenous Caretakers assumed control of his lightsaber. 

In the movies, Luke had two lightsabers, and in a new comic, a third weapon was shown that he used. 

Luke Skywalker's Third Yellow Lightsaber (Yellow Blade) 

The yellow blade of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber first appears in the sixth issue of the Star Wars Saga comic book series.

Luke Skywalker used a Jedi Temple Guard lightsaber with one blade he found at a Jedi outpost on Temples. A kyber crystal powered the lightsaber, and, like all the other Jedi Temple Guards' lightsabers, it released a yellow plasma blade when ignited.

Even though it was never shown in any live-action Star Wars movie, Luke utilized a yellow-bladed lightsaber after losing his real one in Cloud City. The Jedi is directed to the Outer Rim by a prescience from a woman named Verla, even though he cannot recover his weapon.

During his travels, Luke came upon a historic outpost from the High Republic era and took hold of a weapon that the Jedi Temple guards had formerly used. What became of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber with the yellow blade in the canonical comic book series is unclear. 

Construction of Luke Skywalker Green Lightsaber

Luke Skywalker lost his first lightsaber in a fight with his father, Darth Vader, on Bespin during the Galactic Civil War. After losing it, he made a new weapon. He used a yellow lightsaber that he had obtained on a High Republic Jedi station for a while. He was able to create a lightsaber even though Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, his instructors, had only given him a brief explanation of how a Jedi must use the Force to create one.

The plans, or schematics, for this weapon were found in Luke's mentor's cabin on Tatooine. Although Luke's final creation was quite close to the plans, he simplified it a lot because this was his first time creating a lightsaber. For instance, he decided against using the recommended three crystals for his lightsaber in favor of just one, making the blade completely interchangeable.

Luke found the parts he needed in Mos Eisley. These parts included power cells, a high-energy reflector cup, and a focusing lens. He used these parts to build his weapon. Luke, however, was unable to obtain the lightsaber's crystal, which was the one item that could have completed the entire construction.

Luke worked on the parts for many days, reading the instructions carefully and not rushing through the process. Over a month after he began, the weapon remained incomplete. After the Battle of Hoth, Skywalker used cleverness to find the parts he needed to build his lightsaber. Some parts were easy to find, while others were harder to locate. 

Working on Luke’s Green Blade Lightsaber

The weapon functioned perfectly the first time Luke Skywalker pulled the trigger. The green blade quickly cut through a wrist-thick granite spire, producing no heat, suggesting that the superconductors were operating as intended. Luke also said the weapon had a better balance than Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber. Upon activation, the lightsaber produced an odd snap-hiss noise different from his father's weapon's sound, presumably because it was made of a synthetic crystal. 

MAJOR FEATS

Mission of Outer Rim


Luke defeated many security droids on the Imperial Refining Platform M36 during an expedition using his lightsaber and Force powers. He used his skills to overcome the obstacles and challenges he faced. The security droids were no match for Luke's abilities.

His success on the mission was due to his mastery of the Force and combat skills. This allowed Rebel forces to acquire an abundance of Imperial fuel supplies.

His fellow Rebels thought he was impressive. However, the mission's leader was doubtful. The leader had only seen the Sith use that power before.

In "The Force Awakens," a vision from the emperor entered Luke Skywalker's mind. In the vision, Luke could be seen leaving his strike team and making a crash landing with their X-wing on an unidentified planet. He signaled his total detachment from the concerns of the war by leaving his helmet and lightsaber on the ground.

Luke then helped the Rebels escape from the Imperial ambuscade by using his lightsaber to prevent the major's shuttle from departing. This allowed him to pilot the shuttle and deflect the Imperial attention from other Rebels once he had managed to get out of the emperor's sight. 

Rescue of Han Solo


To rescue Captain Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt's palace, Skywalker concealed his lightsaber behind the dome of R2-D2. As he prepared to be severed in the Great Pit of Carkoon, he sent the indication to R2-D2, and the astonished robot returned Luke Skywalker's lightsaber to him. Then, he used his lightsaber to cut Boba Fett's bungee cord and the EE-3 carbine rifle. Additionally, he stopped Jabba's guards' blaster fire from murdering some Khetanna, including Klaatu. 

Battle of Endor


Luke Skywalker used his lightsaber to protect himself from oncoming fire when an Imperial scout trooper's 74-Z speeder bike opened fire. As the scout got closer, Luke Skywalker sliced off the front portion of its stabilizers. As a result, both the vehicle and its driver lost control and crashed into a tree, destroying the speeder bike and killing the soldier.

Following his surrender to the Endor garrison, the Imperial troops took Luke Skywalker's lightsaber. His father, Darth Vader, then looked over the weapon and declared it a Jedi weapon, just as his father's had been made for him.

When the Alliance Fleet was losing to the Imperial Navy, Palpatine told Luke Skywalker to use his lightsaber to kill him. He wanted Luke to join the dark side like his father by giving in to anger. Skywalker finally got the weapon and attacked the emperor when he was vulnerable. But Vader blocked the blow and they started fighting.

Skywalker realized what he was becoming after coming dangerously close to killing his father. He cast aside his lightsaber and proclaimed himself a Jedi. After his father killed the emperor, Skywalker recovered his lightsaber.
