This picture showed up on the Ewan Oogling thread and it seemed the perfect thing to ask this question with. How do you sit with your lightsaber?
Should you sit with the saber hilt pointed inward, or outward? Common sense tells me that it should be pointed outward, just in case it, y'know, goes off. But that's not the way Obi-Wan is sitting with it here.
I suppose that with the Force, accidents like that are unheard of for Jedi. And for me at least, it tends to naturally point inward unless I deliberately point it outward. And it's only comfortable to do that if the saber is hanging closer to the side than the front.

Being that I have the exact same hilt as Ewan there I sit the same way he does, however
I have two other hilts I wear an Ecehlon Parks and a Luke stunt version. If I have the Echelon on I cannot swivel it because of a screw by the clip so it must point down or I have to take it off as some chairs won't ket me sit with it at all. The Luke is the same thing because of the metal hanger .
I'm looking to get a qv soon which will be able to swivel like the Obi-Wan which I like alot more

I had mine on pointed backwards and sat down and it knocked the covertec clip completely off my belt, which led to me crawling under chairs at the opening ceremonies at C-IV to retrieve my lightsaber... which was exceptionally stupid looking considering my age and size... LOL

"The Force is what gives the Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together."
he kind of pushes the saber out of the way so discreetly you don't really notice. That's the key ... not to fuss with it.
Exactly. I've noticed myself doing this naturally. This is how wearing the clothes helps you inhabit the character. Once you've spent a lot of time in your Jedi garb, these sorts of actions become automatic. Obi-Wan would have done that everyday of his life since he started wearing a lightsaber on his belt at a young age.
