UVW mapping is EASY, yes EASY. whats is simpliar than selecting polygons, and adding a modifier that practially does everything for. Hell for sabers you really don't have to worry to much about stretching, becasue its so small.

heres what your modifier list SHOULD look like

unwrap
uvw modifier
mesh/poly/patch select

mushahi i couldnt find the Uv Modifer on the modify list and i was using the tutorial from brother in arms. But when it got to UV wrapping and unwrapping. It really didnt explain much and how to start off.

I used the NGON tool and then coverted to editable mesh. Then I used extrude and bevel options to get the curves and stuff

take the splines shapes right, then make a NgON(should be a hexegon) then convert it to editable mesh. Now click on one of the mesh editing things(element, perferably not vetex)then click the object again and there are two options called extrude and bevel lower on the mesh editing panal. YOu should have some fun with those
