sstorari *claimed* that he had remade the photo cos he had remade the photo.
If u take a look in the source before write something u can see that the problem was solved creatin' the blade from 0.
I think it's clear this sword is totally a patchwork of various level created.
Just take a look to the level "Blade_White Copy" as u can see this piece was totally fake.
Created by using the clone tool, in fact u see it's totally the same in every part.
It was created by taken a first part from the photo and than manipuleted.
As for other parts.
The Hilt was totally reworked using dodge/burn tool and other "effect" of photomanipulation but u know they don't create new layer.

So just a little question: If u can't do something, it means that it can't be done?
Sorry, but I'm a lil sick to try to defend my work everyday and u wait til the last day to make a "new" question?

Honestly, I have some doubts about hat: sstorari *claimed* he remade the 
image using his own (Free) photo as a base and he posted the reference 
photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sstorari/2826852493/
While it looks pretty much like a katana (just like the photos used 
previously), the sword in the photo is not at the same angle as the 
sword in the wallpaper (so the hilt looks different), which make me have 
some doubts. But I am known to be paranoid.
