The lightsaber was a powerful weapon in any Jedi’s hands, but few handled it like Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan knew how to anticipate, feel, and move in ways that showed how much of a master he was. He constructed his third and final lightsaber after earning the title of Jedi Master and continued to use this weapon until he sacrificed himself during his confrontation with Darth Vader. It is this saber, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Hero Lightsaber, that is currently set to be auctioned in London.
Fans of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith will recognize the saber’s iconic blue blade and (faux) bronze-capped black power cell reserve cap as the actual saber wielded by Ewan McGregor in various scenes of the Star Wars saga. The live auction will take place on December 2nd, with bids currently being taken. The fortunate fan who wins Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Hero Lightsaber will receive a certificate of authenticity signed by Nick Gillard, the celebrated stunt coordinator for the iconic film.
