The blade fits just fine and is secure. This saber has never been dueled with.The only issue was that little retention screw getting cross threaded and stripped. This piece is very beautiful and looks just fantastic.
It is the first run Parks/Korbanth ever made. It is extremely rare and all Obi-Wan Kenobi TPM lightsabers that are exact and work are hard to come by. This is not Ultrasabers, I can't stress that enough. This is 1:1 EXACT in all the details. The Obi-Wan Kenobi ANH is also just as pretty.
I altered it by weathering it slightly, and gave it a new paint job, I added an exact replica Graflex clamp lever, and Wanna Wanga calculator bubbles on the top of the activation box. It is a bit bulkier than the actual Graflex clamp box. This one is touch activated!The switch also lights up and has a beautiful scrolling effect! Simply touch the metal knob at the end of the switch and it lights up! Then press down on it for a few seconds to turn it off. It is a one of a kind piece! The Obi-Wan ANH can utilize both blades, the blue blade and the green blade. The Obi-Wan TPM can only use the blue blade BUT if you take some sand paper and sand the end of the green blade it will fit the TPM saber. Both sabers are rare and are just beautiful pieces.
I really hate to get rid of them, I know finding another exact Obi-Wan TPM alone, that is working, will be a pain. With these you don't have to wait weeks or months to get it as is the case with Parks and other saber companies. You will receive a working Obi-Wan Kenobi TPM Lightsaber AND Obi-Wan Kenobi ANH Lightsaber.
The ANH version works with both blades. The TPM version works with just the blue blade unless you sand down the end of green blade to make it fit into the hilt. The TPM version has a stuck retention screw but is fine regardless. It can easily be drilled out and replaced.
Please feel free to contact me. These are rare beautiful pieces folks and one of a kind. You won't see them again and other exact replicas like these are so rare and hard to come by.
