Luke ROTJ. When I was 3, at a cousins house, they showed me Return of the Jedi, when I hadn't seen any of the others. First lightsaber I ever saw was when Luke was swinging around that green blade on the sail barge. Then the close-up of it later in Vader's hand. Plus green was my favorite color :D

RotJ Vader for me. Its 'dark side take on the graflex' look sort of echoes Luke's own darkness, while at the same time evolving Vader's saber design to echo the saber that passed from him to his son through Obi-Wan.

 I got to go with the Graflex. I think it was ingenious that the prop department took something as mundane as a flash bulb holder and turned it into an intergalactic laser weapon.
 having said that nothing ignites like Luke's rotj  saber. like a compressed scream of pent up energy,  maybe not as sophisticated as the ignition hiss of the esb  blade  but  it sure  sounds deadly

Based purely on my reaction when first seeing it, it's gotta be Luke ROTJ.

Graflexes were the reason I started this hobby in the first place :)

My vote's for Obi ANH (hero)
The beginning and end of the quest are defined moments. Between these two points lies a world of strange adventure, wonder and mystery....

I would have to say Obi ANH, then Luke ROTJ

I got to go with the Obi ANH too.  You don't see that much of it, but I feel it is a better representation of a "weapon" than the Graflex.  I think the excellent design of the Obi, leads directly to the good overall look/feel of the Luke ROTJ.

For me, it's going to be Luke's ESB Graflex... Simply because that movie was where his Saber was fully show cased and his first dual with Vader... Screaming close 2nd will forever be ROTJ Luke V2...

Without a shadow of doubt it has to be the Obi-wan saber from ANH, just so regal looking.

Obiwan's saber has always resonated for me. The age and "feel" of sadness around the weapon (partially due to Sir Alec Guiness' acting skills) tells a deep story even without anything but the limited information he gives in the script. The saber has the look (much as does the character himself) of an old warrior who knows he is coming to his end and accepts it with grace and courage. The other designs definitely have a beautiful design language but not such a clear sense of story in them.
