This saber has only ever been owned by Obi-wan and was created by him to use during his padawan years. It was apparently lost in the duel with Darth Maul5) on Naboo. The saber did appear again later, but it's not known if it was recovered or simply duplicated with some minor revisions.

Attack of the Clones

This lightsaber shares a strong resemblance to the Phantom Menace, with some crucial differences. Those differences will be outlined in the gallery section below.

Hilt History

The history of this hilt is a bit confusing. Obi-wan lost a very similar hilt in his duel with Darth Maul. It is not know whether or not he recovered that original hilt or constructed a new one. However, he doesn't hang onto it for very long. During his investigation on Geonosis he is captured by Count Dooku who takes possession of it.6)

Attack of the Clones Clan

It's considered a Clan lightsaber but is distinctly different from the other lightsabers used in those scenes. The maker is not known so the saber is placed here with it's owner.
