Like your jag but want a newer, cleaner skin? Here's the answer!
I had this idea when I started skinning, but every time I tried to make it, it looked horrible. But once I learned how to make normals, I jumped back on it and very happy with the results!
Used same magic, but wanted to take out the wear edges on the original. Wasn't hard, but took quite a bit to finish. I'm very glad I did, because it would have looked horrible if I didn't. I made the texture more bold and darker, plus made the handle part of the normal more rugged like leather...though you don't notice it right away because I reduced the shine on the handle.
