Adam Savage’s Very First Lightsaber Prop Replica!

In his journey recreating his favorite film props, Adam has made many lightsabers. But this machined replica of Luke’s lightsaber was Adam’s first foray into prop replication using reference photos he took of the original. He made this in Jamie’s shop over 25 years ago after seeing the prop in a touring Star Wars exhibition. And even though it is far from a perfect replica, it holds up as capturing the essence of the prop and the gratifying experience of making the prop his own.

  1. I believe it is supposed to be painted black, but the blank saber hasn’t had any finishing applied yet, it is just the bare metal part.
