Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 1 reveals the Jedi Master buried two lightsabers in Tatooine's desert sands. When Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on Tatooine.

The Jedi had failed, after all; they were supposed to serve as champions of the light, and yet they had failed to recognize the influence of the dark side flourishing at the heart of the Republic.

They had then been wiped out in Star Wars' Order 66, cut down by the unexpected betrayal of the clone troopers.

"This weapon is your life," Obi-Wan told Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. This wasn't just a piece of practical advice.

It's therefore telling that Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 1 revealed the Jedi Master buried his lightsaber in the desert sands when he exiled himself on Tatooine.

His task was to keep his head down and wait for Luke Skywalker to grow up, before taking the opportunity to train the boy.

There is, of course, a striking parallel between Obi-Wan's two lightsabers and the two lightsabers Rey buried at the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Rey's decision to bury the lightsabers is, therefore, a perfect inversion of Obi-Wan's in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ TV series.
