The Skywalker lightsaber (original)
This was the weapon constructed and wielded by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker. Built as a replacement for Anakin’s first lightsaber, it was carried by its creator throughout the Clone Wars and after Anakin turned against the Jedi Order by joining the Sith Lord Darth Sidious.
In the hands of a Sith, the newly anointed Darth Vader, the lightsaber was used to cut down numerous Jedi, including Padawans and Jedi younglings during the attack on the Jedi Temple of Coruscant. It then was used to slaughter the leaders of the Confederacy of Independent Systems on Mustafar. Upon being confronted by his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Vader used the lightsaber to duel Kenobi, but was defeated. Kenobi took the lightsaber and brought it with him to Tatooine, where he kept it for nearly two decades until he handed it down to Anakin’s son, Luke Skywalker.
