Learn How to Make Your Own Lightsaber Pen

by Conner Flynn

If the pen is mightier than the sword, this lightsaber pen is mightier than… The pen. Despite our technological advancements, we do still use writing instruments on occasion, but one day soon they may be relics, so a lightsaber pen like this has a lot in common with the Jedi weapon of choice. Both are works of art and both really are elegant weapons from a more civilized age.

Check out the video below from YouTube channel “Making Stuff” as they machine a solid piece of aluminum bar stock into a beautiful replica of a lightsaber. It all starts with a piece of aluminum in the lathe, where the ribbed profile of the saber hilt is cut. Those gaps are simply filled in with a black Sharpie for added contrast and depth. Then the emitter takes shape and after that he hollows out one end so a brass tube can be inserted. The acrylic blade is next, lathed and polished nicely. An ink cartridge completes the weapon. Watch the entire glorious build for yourself:

The creator must have felt like Luke after completing his own lightsaber as he readied himself for Jabba’s palace to rescue his friends. Best pen ever!
