If you’re wanting an authentic looking lightsaber, then you’re probably going to look at purchasing one that’s been mass-produced. Generally the Force FX sabers are the go-to for authenticity. However, not everyone wants something that was built in a factory. After all, part of the jedi training is building your own lightsaber, and that’s exactly what Bradley Lewis has done.
Looking through the pictures on his website and watching the video below, this guy has thought of everything. Something you don’t see on most crafted sabers is the ability to open it up and see the “power crystal.” Granted, it’s actually just a set of LEDs, but who cares? If you have the time, patience, skills and tools, then you’ll find the step-by-step instructions on his site most helpful on your journey to become a jedi.
