Here’s a personal project I thought came out pretty well. The whole thing took about a week to model; the more mundane parts including boolean operations (to connect the blade and hilt), and remesh modifiers (to clean up the messy topology).
It features a sort of layered-leafy-styled hilt, an Andurilish-looking pommel, and an infinitely sharp blade! (that is, if it were ever reproduced in real life with exact dimensions)
It’s also perfectly balanced!
Thanks for viewing!
