Luke Skywalker

lukesaberanh.jpgLuke Skywalkerwp was trained by Master Yoda, Master Kenobi, and picked up many things from his duels with his father, Darth Vader. Although difficult to attribute his lightsaber style, it is theorized that he specialized in Form V: Shien / Djem So after his father.source?

ANH

Luke Skywalker is not the creator of this hilt. However, the design is different from Anakin Skywalker's original in Revenge of the Sith and thus is attributed to Luke here. Rebel Scum has a great article on the differences. Roger Christian was the art directory for A New Hope and had this designed off of a 3cell graflex flash tube1).

ROTJ

So far there have been three versions discovered of this hilt. The first hilt, v1, is only used for the close up shots of Darth Vaders hand as he's examining Luke's saber after being captured on Endor and the rest of the shots use v2. V2 was actually a leftover Obi-wan Stunt from ANH. The V3 hilt was seen at a special exhibit/screening for employees only and is not known where it was used in the actual film.
