In the meantime, enjoy this tutorial on Bladed Weapon Prop Creation.
Description: The tutorial covers various ZBrush features like the ZModeler Brush, Gizmo3D, Live Boolean, Dynamesh, and Surface Noise to create a bladed weapon prop.
Swords and knives are often created to accessorize models. Using ZBrush, these weapons can be easily created for use as props for character models, conceptual artwork, or even used with Film, Video Games, 3D Printing for Cosplay or Product Design.
