    Now that 99% of the saber has been positively identified I have decided to find all of the original parts needed to build a original Obi Wan ANH Saber




    Jan 14th 2006, UPDATE

    I was able to locate an real ANM2 Booster and this week it finally arrived

    Now I just need to find the cheap parts :)

    Nov 4th, 2005 UPDATE

    I already had a moderen "real" Armitage Shank and I was able to get a decent clamp from ebay for $50.





    It will be a slow process but eventually I'll get everything



    Here is my Saber so far

    If you're going to be building an obi, how come you have Luke parts in the pic?

    One step at a time, that's how it's done. Nice clamp.

    That's a fairly prop-accurate one too, good find. :)

    They may as well have been handmade, there is so much variation in fin edge thickness, groove radius size, fin wall form, and the shapes of the radii at the ends of the fins. The latter must have been hand-filed on the lathe, they are all so different.

    Most of the ones I've seen have the wrong fin end radii, yours is closer than most, and the fin edge thickness is pretty good. :)
