How can I Re-skin the default crowbar item?

I would like to be able to retexture the crowbar and upload it the steam workshop, can anyone link me a guide to do something like this?

Thanks

rip the crowbar textures from the hl2 vpk (or gmod if they have it in there by default now) and just recolor it, you might need to change shader or shader settings if you want a different look (like shiny or metallic)

after that you can just put it in an addon with same file name or you can do it via lua with setsubmaterial/setmaterial
