Graflex Flash Gun Handles and the Origins of the Lightsaber | #StarWars

Who knew?! The inspiration – indeed the original slightly modified prop – for lightsabers originated with vintage Graflex flash handles. Now, I’m warning you, don’t further search places like eBay because you’ll find sellers asking exorbitant amounts of money for what is essentially just a nicely milled metal tube. Still, cool historical inspiration for a retro-future space opera movie prop!
