This was a revisit on an old model I completed while in college; a model of my favorite pocketknife, the Benchmade Rukus 630. Originally completed for my Low-Poly Modeling class, I decided to revamp the texture a bit and give it a better render in the Marmoset engine. The last image is the high-poly model created for the high-poly bake.
It's a solid knife. 4.3" blade of CPMS30V, G-10 and green linen Micarta handle-scales, BK1 blade coating, AXIS locking mechanism, and partial serrated blade. Benchmade 630 Rukus. 90% of the time, I'm carrying this knife.
