Thnx.

The blade or the hilt?

The blade is easier. Go to assets0.pk3 and lok for the gfx directory. In there, go to effects/sabers. In there are a bunch of .jpg files. Edit them with photoshop, paintshop pro, etc. Glow2 is obviously the glow(I don't know of a glow1 lol) and line is the blade itself. After editing them, put the knew gfx file in a pk3 and into your base folder.

The hilt requires milkshape and is much harder to do. Search the forums for a link.

If you indeed are talking about the blade, there are several mods around that already do this. You could download those and see how they do it...

For hilts, there are a bunch of good modeling tutorials (usually using gMax or Milkshape). The one I used was:
