Light Saber - Caliber unknown.
Many science fiction film fans consider the futuristic lightsaber, legendary weapon of the Jedi Knight, to be their most popular fictional arm. Throughout the Star Wars saga, the lightsaber has evolved from its first conceptualization by prop masters at George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic, using the flash grip battery housing from 1950s Graflex cameras, to encompassing myriad variations in grip patterns and laser color. This lightsaber is attributed as a backup prop, built by Ellis Props, for use in the original Star Wars film.
