Star Wars - Obi-Wan Kenobi's Third LightSaber Free Paper Craft DownloadThis  papercraft is the Obi-Wan Kenobi's third LightSaber, the paper model was created by MTK. Obi-Wan Kenobi's third lightsaber was the weapon wielded by the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi during the  and the Great Jedi Purge after his second lightsaber was lost. After his death in combat against Darth Vader, the weapon passed into Vader's possession before being lost on Vjun after the destruction of the Death Star. It was found by the false Darksider Orloc before being retrieved by Anakin Solo and returned to the Jedi Order.

Obi-Wan Kenobi constructed this lightsaber during the Clone Wars, following his promotion to Jedi Master. He wielded it for the rest of his life.

One of the weapon's earliest uses was during the Battle of Christophsis. Kenobi wielded it during an attempted ambush on the droid forces, brandishing it when droids began storming his compromised position. Deflecting the initial volley fired at him, Kenobi retaliated with a Force push, downing one of the droids. As the droids advanced, Kenobi called for mission abort. Skywalker and his men rendezvoused with Kenobi and fought their way to the complexes roof. Ambushed by enemy forces, they charged the droid ranks, hacking apart every droid in range. As the evac arrived, they retreated.

Learning of a security breach within their own ranks, the two Jedi resolved to infiltrate the Separatist headquarters to find answers. Allowed to enter without struggle, but with their communications jammed, they were met by Asajj Ventress. Drawing their lightsabers, they engaged. Skywalker attacked first, with Kenobi just behind. Ventress held them both off, even attacking telekinetically, hurling some furniture at Kenobi, though he quickly cut it down with his blade. The Jedi began gaining ground on Ventress, forcing her to retreat to a library within the base. After a brief telekinetic struggle, they demanded her surrender, advancing on her. However, she reignited her twin lightsabers into the floor, causing it to collapse under the Jedi. Gloating over the two Jedi, she only prompted them to pursue. Retreating to an external ledge, she revealed the droid reinforcements landing outside. Chasing her onto the massive tri droid she was perched on, Kenobi and Skywalker cut the droids legs, causing it to fall. While Skywalker and Ventress reengaged, Kenobi began looking for an escape route. He and Skywalker leapt onto two passing STAPs and fled the scene.

Upon returning to their base, they found that their entire air force had been destroyed by the Separatist agent, the bitter Clone Sergeant Slick. Kenobi attempted to rectify the situation by sending their shuttle back to the fleet for supplies, but this backfired because the Separatist attack came while it was away, leaving their already shrunken force even more shorthanded. While Skywalker led a company of Jet Troopers to attack the droid forces from above, Kenobi led the charge into their ranks, cutting down droids left and right while deflecting volleys of blaster fire. Fortunately, the Separatist forces were routed and forced into retreat by the Clone heavy cannons, the one thing Slick didn't destroy. At that moment, the shuttle returned. However, instead of bringing supplies and reinforcements, it brought the Jedi initiate, Ahsoka Tano, who had just been assigned as Skywalker's padawan. To make things worse, the Separatist forces set up a massive deflector shield to protect their forces, slowly increasing the diameter as their troops advanced. While Skywalker and Tano went behind enemy lines to take out the shield, Kenobi led the Clones against the droids, taking up defensive positions and waiting for the shield to overtake them. Once it did, Kenobi ordered the attack.

Igniting his lightsaber, Kenobi leapt into the enemy ranks, impaling a super battle droid from above. Hacking apart droids left and right, Kenobi allowed himself to become separated from the Clones, covering their retreat. He rejoined the clones just in time to save a trooper from a super battle droid; cutting off the droid's arms before Force blasting it into another, destroying both. Ordering the Clones to retreat while he covered their backs, Kenobi impaled one super, and decapitated two other droids. As the droids advanced, Kenobi deactivated his lightsaber, feigning surrender. While Kenobi entered into "negotiations" with the Separatist General Whorm Loathsom, his weapon was taken from him. Fortunately, Kenobi had stalled Loathsom for long enough, and the shield was taken out by Skywalker and Tano.

In contrast to the simple weapon design based off his master's that he had originally constructed, Kenobi's new weapon featured a much more skeletal make. The emitter was separated from the body of the weapon by a bronze cut-back, thin "choke" portion which also held the reserve power cell. Immediately below this slim bar was the ridged handgrip, which occupied the central third of the hilt. The activator was throttle-style, the same sort featured on Anakin Skywalker's lightsabers. The lone design feature common between Kenobi's new and old weapons were a set of evenly spaced protrusions around the circumference of the pommel.

During his time on Tatooine, Kenobi wrote down instructions for creating a lightsaber in a journal. He based the schematics provided off the design for his lightsaber, which resulted in the lightsabers created from the instructions bearing a strong resemblance to his weapon. [Source: Wikia]
