Luke Vs Anakin Skywalker Lightsaber

Anakin Skywalker; who because of the unfortunate turn of events chose the Dark side and became the Darth Vader to wield the red saber of the sith lords and his oblivious son Luke skywalker that didn’t know until the good part of the Star Wars  franchise that Darth Vader is in fact his father, have almost same prowess.

And their light sabers combined with their force prove to be very lethal weapons but between father & son, Light and dark, whose weapon is the mightiest.

Let’s get to know their Sabers

Luke Made His Lightsaber From Scratch With The Help Of Schematics From Tatooine

Luke Skywalker's lightsaber was the first lightsaber constructed by Luke Skywalker and the second one he owned.

This weapon's design was based on schematics Luke found in his mentor's hut on Tatooine. While the final product remained largely faithful to these designs, Luke simplified the weapon considerably, as this was his first attempt at constructing a lightsaber.

He decided to use only one crystal for his lightsaber, as opposed to the ideal of three to allow for a fully adjustable blade. Luke was able to gather most of the parts he required to build his weapon from various vendors in the city of Mos Eisley, including a high-energy reflector cup, power cells and a focusing lens. However, Luke was unable to obtain the one vital component that would bring the whole project together: the lightsaber crystal itself.

When Luke Skywalker first ignited the weapon, it functioned perfectly. The green blade emitted no heat, signifying that the internal superconductors were working properly, and it sheared through a wrist-thick rock spire with no difficulty. Luke also noted that the weapon possessed superior balance to Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber. Possibly as a result of utilizing a synthetic crystal, the lightsaber made a distinctive snap-hiss sound when activated, which was a different sound to that emitted by his father's weapon.

Anakin Skywalker's first lightsaber was the original lightsaber owned by him. It had a blue plasma blade, chunky controls, and thick ridges on the handle. While fighting his way through Poggle the Lesser's battle droid foundries on Geonosis, Skywalker had his lightsaber destroyed by a mechanical cutting arm. Shortly thereafter, the Battle of Geonosis occurred, effectively starting the Clone Wars. Sometime prior to the Battle of Christophsis, Anakin Skywalker built himself a new lightsaber.

Anakin Skywalker's second lightsaber was the weapon constructed and carried by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars, and was later carried by his son Luke Skywalker during the Galactic Civil War.

Anakin’s 2nd Lightsaber Was Specially Designed For Form V Lightsaber Combat

Incorporating many of the elements from his first weapon, Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber was specifically designed to facilitate Skywalker's practice of Form V lightsaber combat. As per Form V weapon specifications, the lightsaber had a solid casing and a heavily shrouded blade emitter. The beveled emitter was designed to designate separate facets of the blade for either offensive or defensive purposes. The lightsaber hilt included a ridged hand grip, as Djem So required its users to maintain a solid grip on the hilt. It was also later modified to allow it to operate underwater.

Before being passed to Luke Skywalker, the weapon's hilt had been slightly altered so that the original fastener belt was changed into a ring.

Aboard the second Death Star, Luke used his lightsaber during his final confrontation with Darth Vader. When Palpatine was inspecting the lightsaber, he claimed that the design was much like his father's. At the climax of his duel with Vader, as he stood with the weapon leveled at his fallen father's throat, Luke refused to give in to Palpatine's goading to slay his father and submit to the dark side of the Force, shutting his lightsaber off and hurling the weapon aside.
