Question "Polished" metal look for a sword blade.

Hey guys! i'm currently working on my model of the Kokiri sword from Zelda Ocarina of Time, but the thing is, I don't even have a texture for the blade or handle or pommel.

This is my reference:

This is the original Kokiri sword from Ocarina of Time.
Here is my model, though the lighting in this isnt even final nor is the rest of the model yet, but the blade it's self is final.
I can't find a good looking texture for the blade at all.
The blade it's self already has a reflective surface but it looks...well not realistic.
You can't see the blade too well because of the lighting but here:

Here is an example of how I want my blade to look:
^I want my blade to have that finished polished look on it.

Any suggestions? and what could I do about textures for the handle and the pommel?
