Background: Obi-Wan Kenobi’s second lightsaber was the second lightsaber constructed and wielded by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi. Sometime after the Invasion of Naboo, Obi-Wan Kenobi sought to construct a new weapon after he lost his first lightsaber in a duel on Naboo against the Sith Lord Darth Maul.

Around 29 BBY, Kenobi wielded the weapon during the mission to Carnelion IV. In 22 BBY, Kenobi wielded the weapon during the unrest of the Separatist Crisis, when he sliced off the hand of the Clawdite Zam Wesell, the bounty hunter assigned to assassinate the Naboo Senator Padmé Amidala, in the Outlander Club, a nightclub located in the underworld of the planet Coruscant. He also wielded the weapon during a skirmish with the bounty hunter Jango Fett on Kamino. The weapon was taken by the Geonosians when he was captured by Separatist leader Count Dooku on Geonosis. During the First Battle of Geonosis, Obi-Wan used a lightsaber that he borrowed from another Jedi.
