Re-animated version of Millena's Balisong Reborn skin

THIS SKIN IS CURRENTLY BROKEN IN THE LATEST VERSION OF TF2
I will try to get around to fixing it sometime later, however, if you want, feel free to make an updated version.

After seeing Millenia's Balisong Reborn model, I was disappointed that the animation glitch in one of the new updates broke the model. So, going into 3DSMax, I reanimated the model using the original butterfly knife .mdl (Thanks to Bl8demast3r for making all the animations flawless!). The result is almost perfect, but is still a WIP due to not 100% perfection. ;) It is currently 99% done. Now included, a Benchmade Balisong-based skin (silver).

Video Preview here (OUT OF DATE, WILL TRY TO MAKE A NEW ONE):

Donations are appreciated, via TF2 weapons, metal, points, and comments. These all motivate me to continue development and start new projects. I can be reached by my Steam username: gyroknight.

Please tell me if I missed any authors! Help would be appreciated!

    Right, my knowledge managed to get everything working except the materials. This needs to be reborn AGAIN as I am not spending another 3 hours on this.
    You're welcome to rererelease it if you would like. I'll try to find some time to update it over the summer, but no guarantees since I rarely play TF2 nowadays.

    Fair enough, fair enough! I have no skill in modeling or animation, however, and being in secondary school I don't have a lot of free time. I have seen that depending on the weapon, full conversion to c_models with all the works could take a day or so, meaning I'd have to do it in the summer too. We'll see, but I'm very annoyed that I can't get the materials to work regardless of what I try.

Development Info

Notes
Known bugs: -knife sticks through the hands in certain animations (Currently impossible to fix, has to do with the model itself) -some backpack icons clip with the frame (too lazy to fix this right now, maybe later)

0.2-knife now turns invisible when cloaked, backstab animation behaves as normal, backstab_idle given a new animation, backstab_up/down made to fit the knife's length

0.3-team colored arms are fixed, general optimizations added

0.4-Separated skins from folder, added readme, added 5 skins

0.5-Added backpack icon

1.0-Backstab glitch finally fixed. Special thanks to Bl8demast3er for helping me with a recompile! Also included a new Benchmade skin with bumpmap.

1.0.1-Fixed backpack icon location (Thanks to Smarth for pointing this out!)

2.0-Backpack icons for everyone, VPKs, and updated backpack icon for Benchmade skin

Future plans: Move the Benchmade skin to it's own model, fix backpack icons
