Simple sword

Im new to this forum, so first off all hello to everyone!:slight_smile:

For a few weeks now im doing my firsts steeps into 3d modeling with the help of blender. I watched some tutorials, tried to familiarize myself with various tools and methods and i finally finished my first model. I wanted to start with something easy so i decided to make a sword. Here it is.

Im pretty satisfied with the result as i thought it will look much worse after rendering. Although i think i overdone the texture on the blade a bit. Maybe i should done less scratches? Any feedback, comments and advices are of course appreciated.
