Amazing work sofar Seth :) ... perhaps you wish to add one of these pictures in your next revision ... it's the rehearsal between Dave Prowse and Alec Guinness with the earliest lightsaber props available. Sorry I have no clue what they are made off, yet I suspect wooden handles coated with reflective movie screen material ...

I've seen the upper one before-- but much lower res and in black and white. Thanks for these!

Thanks for the pic's - not seen that lower one anywhere before. I would say almost certainly wood (with joint above handguard) covered with M3 scotchlite fabric.

There is a video clip (VC1) of these blades on my thread
The ANH LightSaber Blade Reference Thread

Although I also think these are pre-motorised versions I have no actual proof, they could be the round tapered ones mention in Matty Matts memo ( quote Mmm) in my same thread. Does anyone have any more info on where these came in development ?
