Metal textures

What's the best metal texture for a saber hilt? I've tried simple, complex and photo-realistic. I'm never happy with the results. What texture do you think looks best and why?

Chrome. Looks shiny and clean. Another thing, use a simple grey texture for the hilt and then use a chrome texture as an enviromental map on the shader, that will give you a nice, shiny and polished look to your hilt.
