"A simple grip? The curved approach? One inlaid with the bone of the Cartusion whale, pastillion ore, or black onk?"
―Huyang lists off various lightsaber designs to a group of Jedi younglings[src]

The Cartusion whale was a species of whale whose bones were used to inlay lightsaber hilts. During the Clone Wars, a series of conflicts fought between the Galactic Republic and the breakaway Confederacy of Independent Systems, the architect droid Huyang told a group of Jedi younglings aboard the Crucible that a Cartusion whalebone-infused hilts was an option in the process of building their lightsaber.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
