I see what you are talking about with the stretching going on, I will continue to work on it. I actually did use a reference picture for the knife, which I found on yahoo. Just need more practice with modelling objects. Thanks for you time.
the blade design itself isnt that bad. But i think it needs to be sharper. If you would like a harder edhe use the soften harden under edit polygons>normals>SoftenHarden, I found its one of the most important tools for bladed objects in my opinion. The rest looks okay, but the handle needs to be longer, looks like the soldier would barely be able to grip it with 2 fingers.
Catch me if i'm on. Always up for a chat.
