This low-polygon count sword (400 polygons, 752 Triangles) is based on an actual historical sword that was excavated in England and dated to approximately 1325 AD.
The model comes with a complete set of textures, covering color, bump, specular, reflectance and normal maps. It also comes with an HDR environment map for simulated reflections, or you can use your own. The textures are all 2048x2048, holding up even in next-generation games.
The model is built to real-world scale, using normal information from a highly detailed sword model, also available through Turbosquid.
Historically, the pommel had a coat of arms, but here a generic emblem has been substituted. For greater personalization, retexture it with an icon or heraldic symbol of your own.
A bonus Lightwave scene is included that reproduces the primary preview image with the red carpet.
