It's certainly better than anything I could ever do...

One thing - tweak the sword material a bit - it looks more like molten glass than metal. Maybe sharpen the reflections a little.

Drop your smoothing angle on your blade surface to around 15 - 20 degrees, that should help with the over smoothing.

that looks more like a whale harpoon... ouhh uhh, bad boy.... just joking... something wrong with the metal, start with a preset for metal and work from there.... that blade looks very fragile....:D ;)

Here's an example image of what I mean by adjusting the smoothing angle, note the tight line between the blade and the blade groove.

I've attached a preset here, but you'll have to pick your own HDRI / relection images as I've not included them.
