Then with the stacks you can bend the "sword" around a bit more to make it look more like bamboo. (Although I don't really see how you'd make a sword out of bamboo...)

    There is a bamboo texture in the Blademaster texture in-game, use it instead.

    The texture could use a bit more definition in it, but other than that, it could be useful

    672 polies is A HUGE LOT for an attachment, you seriously need to reduce it.

    Good that you reduced the polies, now the only fix you should make is using ingame textures.
    As debode said, " There is a bamboo texture in the Blademaster texture in-game, use it instead. "

    just check the "unshaded" on your material manager and it'll be neat
