Question Cutting Holes into Polys

I am in need of some help, I need to make a hole in a polygon object and i cant seem to find any way of doing it. Heres an example, i need to create a hole that goes all the way through a sword. Here you guys might know about the new final fantasy short film coming out and i wanted to make Cloud's buster sword.

Anyhelp on makeing holes in polygons would be great!

use boolean tools in maya to cut out parts, or manually do it

Hi there,

I'm new as well, but I think I can give you some help. After you create the polygon object, hold down the right mouse button, and select faces. Then select a face, and press delete on your keyboard.

Hope that helps.
