So I am modelling this blade from a series. I applied the Principled BSDF shader, but no matter how much I play with it, I can't see enaugh reflections. Does anyone know how to solve this?

    $\begingroup$ Turn down roughness and make the sharp edges a bit more smooth/round, e.g. using the bevel modifier. Ideally plane faces and sharp edges don't make reflections visible so well. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Bevel modifier destroys the topology of the blade, but turning down roughness really improved the reflections! i.cubeupload.com/i7QrlE.png $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You can exlude the blade edges by using Limit Method: Vertex Group. $\endgroup$
