Or realistic enough? This is the sword of the main character from the anime Sword Art Online. I modeled this in 3Ds MAX and for some reason I don't think I'm making this look "real" enough. Any experts who can help? I've been working on this thing for about a week.

my reccomendation is to add more color and texture. I see only flat black and shiny white. Real objects are not perfect, so the texture needs imperfections. Also add more colors becuase that lets us differentiate the parts of the sword. The difference doesn't have to be huge.

I tried to make the black parts reflect the light better but it the materials even with edited wouldn't work. Maybe it's because I'm still not as proficient with 3Ds MAX as I like to be. I rendered a new picture so see how it looks.
