During the rather quick flashback there is another masked knight with a flanged war club, and a longer range rifle. Yet, there is a lighter colored Knight who looks similar to Kylo Ren who’s weapon is in question. This becomes somewhat interesting.
The official official “Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens” offers a closer look at the Knight. In the “Star Wars; The Last Jedi,” novel Luke Skywalker tells Rey Ben Solo escaped with the Knights of Ren, What appears to be clear is the Knight in question has a lightsaber handle that resembles that of Darth Vader.
Star Wars fans know that the kyber crystal helps make the blade of the saber. They also know that Jedi students need to be instructed and guided by a master so that they can successfully create one, which explains the poor design of Kylo Ren’s lightsaber.
In The Rise of Skywalker teaser trailer there is a Knight of Ren in the backround with a lightsaber on. It is quick. It also looks to be a new saber all together. Could be something, could be nothing. Things like this usually have a deeper meaning.
Yet thinking about the fact that Ren wants Rey’s lightsaber (as it blonged to his grandfather. It could be that Kylo is willing to settle on the better constructed lightsaber by the Knight as it looks like there is a major fight taking place. So he attacks him to take it. In Order to either escape or gain some ground.
The bottom line is there will be a new lightsaber in the final Skywalker film.
