all though this is not your best work

it is the best edge of a blade i have seen yet since it actually appears sharp

Question

You doing great jobs. Are you take SS from your self-made 3D models ?

Love your work

Fantastic.
There's only one issue I can see: parts of it look hand-drawn, like animation, particularly the blade. There's something un-real-looking about it. It is really the only flaw in an otherwise excellent model. Suggestions:
(a) Play with background/foreground lighting. Try adding a really bright backlight that gives highlights just to some edges, but doesn't actually brighten anything.
(b) Textures: add a slight color texture to make the handle look like polished wood instead of an ideal brown object. Also, I find making a normal-map with lines is good for metal, as it gives it a "scraped" look.
(c) Bevel the edges on the blade that aren't the sharpened edge.

These are just suggestions: they may not even solve the issue I'm talking about, but maye they're worth your time to try? It's still 9/10 as is! Great stuff!

W0W!

Pure animation! It looks so real!

Nice work

I particularly like the reflection details. This is really nice work.
