Lightsabers for an OSR style game

I'm thinking of doing a conversion of BFRPG to Star Wars. At least for the classes and some of the weapons. Here's a first shot at lightsabers.

Lightsaber
Cost: 10,000 credits (or as a gift from your master)
Weight: 1
Damage: 1d10

Range: Lightsabers can be thrown by jedi and sith only. They have a range of 10/20/30.

Lightsabers ignore 3 points of non-magical armor and also ignore 3 points of Hardness when used against objects.

I'd say it's more effective rules-wise to give Jedi and Sith a fast telekinesis ability that can be used on light objects, allowing them to do both the lightsaber-throw-trick and the Vader throwing objects at Luke thing, plus whatever else they come up with.

I concur with 1d30 on the throwing... it doesn't seem to be a property of the 'sabre.

I'd just treat them as Swords of Sharpness, but allow the wielder to disarm rather than dismember if desired.
