low poly assassin knife

I made a low poly assassins knife today but Im not to good at texturing. I need help with the leather texture it doesnt look right I cant put my finger on it also I want the blad to look a little damaged but not to much I tryed to put a scratched metal normal map on it but it looked to damaged and when I toned it down a little it looked odd… basicly Im asking you if someone could point me to a good advanced texturing tutorial on metal and leather.
