Link's first sword in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A treasure of the Kokiri, Link had to borrow it to help save the Deku tree. Though not a difficult item to obtain, it is a highly recognized item, and is essential to completing the Ocarina of Time collection.

This particular sword was actually short enough for me to keep the entire blade as one unwrap, unlike most of the other swords I've done in the past. An edge loop around the hilt's guard, though unneccesary for the silhouette of the object, enabled me to use the same texture space for both sides of the sword. Aside from the unwrapping challenges, this particular blade had a very simplistic design, and was relatively easy to make. The Normal Map was entirely hand-painted, possible through the use of the Nvidia filter in Photoshop.
