First of all make the outlines and fill the blade with some dark collor:


Start making the light focus with some light gray on a border:



Star doing some "outlines" around of the light part, just a little darker on each stage:



continue with it util the reflexes and the blade's original collor are almost the same:


The final result maybe something like that:


It looks better on big blades and you may want to make some longer lines for the reflexes so the effect is cooler:

a good idea is to add some collor, red look really good:

So, here it is, a good way to do realistic blades for who dont like to use professional image editors, hope you like it :D
