I've recently started learning to model. This is the first one I made for a looong time. Any tips and tricks for a beginner is accepted! I think I made the handle way too high poly for what it is.

    I don't know of any tips I coudl give you aside from answering basic shape questions, as I'm not exactly an expert myself but I do know how to make basic models.

    One tip would be to use extrusions to form your model instead of sculpting. I don't know what you did here but based on the roundness of the edges I have to assume you used the sculpting tool to form the shape it, which I thought was the way to do it my first time too.
    However the best way to do it is to use extrusions from my experience. In EDIT mode, select your vertex edges you want by right clicking them, and press E to extrude them, and use the mouse to shape it, us S to scale it. 

    These textures however are rather interesting on their own.



    Then there's the matter of shading, in which you can make a cube look round under the right shaders. 

    Here's a shoddy screwdriver I made to show someone else something, notice how it looks round; its actually a decagon cylinder. The faces are marked as Smooth instead of Flat which creates an optimized method of creating round edges with minimal vertices. Sculpting tool was never used.



    Any more questions about basics I can try to answer

    I guess it don't looks bad at all for a beginner !!
    (I don't have any knowledge about modeling or anything like that).

    Same thing for your 2 others models.

    But yeah, wait a "real" modeler to have an interesting feedback...
