- "a simple grip, a curved approach, one inlaid with the bone of the Cartusion whale, pastillion ore or black onk."
- ―The options given for lightsaber design by Huyang
Black onk was a substance which could be used as an inlay in the handle of lightsabers. When a group of Jedi Padawans visited the Jedi training cruiser Crucible during the Clone Wars, the Architect droid Huyang who was stationed there informed them that a black onk infused handle was an option they could select when constructing their own lightsabers.
Behind the scenesEdit
Black onk was first mentioned in 2012 in A Test of Strength, the seventh episode of the fifth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the script for which was written Christian Taylor. The substance was also mentioned in the trivia gallery for the episode on StarWars.com.
