Japanese Knife

Hi guys,

Am modeling a knife for a friend and so far this is the design/color/textures he wants, but I can’t get the brass part of the handle looking right…

Can someone give me some material settings to play with to get it looking better?

thanks…

The brass looks pretty good to me. You could try out the other specular shaders and see if you like their result more.

I hate perfection. It’s way too perfect. You need to add some cuts and nicks on the knife along with some warping and cracks in the wood. Unless you are meaning for that knife to look like a plastic display model. That’s just my input though.

-Kain I would love to do that, but this is what the client wants…it’s a brand new knife and he wants it as is…

looks to perfect for my taste as well…

Thanks Mazui

I have updated the scene tweaking the floor, blade and handle…
