Warning: Spoilers are ahead for season four of Star Wars Rebels.
Star Wars fans express their passion through a number of creative endeavors, and for Nick Cohen of Starfall Sabers, it’s about crafting one-of-a-kind sabers made entirely by hand. One of his recent designs pays tribute to a fallen hero from Star Wars Rebels: Kanan Jarrus. The Jedi formerly known as Caleb Dume lost his life in a selfless act of sacrifice, saving the Ghost crew from an explosion in “Jedi Night.” The character is Cohen’s favorite in Rebels, so he took extra care to replicate the elegant weapon.

Cohen shares some of the everyday objects he used in Kanan’s lightsaber: zip ties, a piece from a flashlight, and a cut-up floor mat. He says he always keeps found parts, and when you’re making a variety of lightsabers, having a stash of hardware and odds and ends would come in handy. I mean, look at what he made.
View some beauty shots of Kanan’s lightsaber below. Visit Starfall Sabers to learn more about getting a saber of your own.
