    There's no hard and fast rule, if you think about then the player can either be holding a knife or an M4 in any situations, my point being that a knife could have as many polys as a complex gun model and it shouldnt really cause performance issues. I imagine you'll be fine at least up to a couple of thousand tris, probably higher...

    1000 should probably be enough for a simple knife, just as long as you don't go over 10000.
