Update: I've uploaded some new renders to reflect the changes I made to the model for [link]

I've been inspired recently to try and build some real objects in Cinema 4D instead of spaceships etc. - it will help me develop my skills, particularly in regards to creating realistic textures. This sword is a work in progress. I'm not happy with the leather texture for the grip, and I'd like to hear any other thoughts/suggestions which people have.

I used photos for reference.

it's looking pretty nice. if you're going for realism - what kind of texture do you want to give it? .. not used, slightly used with knicks in the metal? used, with a fair amount of degradation? dirty, in mud .. the only steps that're left are the radiosity + hdri and a good setting for the sword to be in.. maybe on a silk blanket or granite. i look forward to seeing the final outcome - the design of the sword seems technically accurate, great job modeling it.
you might also consider adding a gem or jewel in the sword handle (just a suggestion!) it would look pretty sweet i think.
