Description
With better experience in Maya-to-Source, I went back and revisited a poorly optimized favorite of mine. Hope you like the changes! =]
___________________________________

v2 updates:
1) Optimized mesh with double sided material ($nocull)
2) Both styles use one material rather than separate, as well as a better lightwarp
3) Updated Normal map for more visible wood grains in cloak
4) Jiggleboned rose
5) Backstab particle system (not included in reskin mods)

The newer version comes in much prettier and finished at a little more than half the amount of memory space of the original!

Polygon count:
LOD 0 - 1654 (Original: 2191)
LOD 1 - 672 (Original: 822)

Roseless Style:
LOD 0 - 812 (Original: Same)
LOD 1 - 312 (Original: Same)
___________________________________

DESCRIPTION:
A knife I made for the Spy. The design is based around the elegance of a rose and its symbol for love. But ironically wrapped around a knife. When backstabbing, I see it as symbolic for "cheating", "having an affair", or more bluntly, "backstabbing".

It's bittersweet with a bit of sarcastic humor mixed in. =]

*** SPECIAL THANKS TO Tellahleiah AS WELL FOR THE SFM IMAGE! :D ***
