Hello, i have high poly model.
My question is how to simplify it to more low poly? Which tool to use?
Thank you for your help.

Depends how high poly it is, and how low poly you'd like it to be.
Feel free to be more vague.

It has 38K vertices / 74k faces.
I don't have exact number how low i want it to go, i just want to experiment. How low i can go and keep relatively good look in my render.

Other than manual work, the optimise and multires modifiers are your only automated options but they will make a huge mesh of your mesh.

no human made model has that many control points, you only reach that kind of poly count via subdivision/nurbs rasterization/whatever algorithms and the source material for that is often a good place to start your optimization efforts. when creating something with the purpose of fitting inside a certain performance envelope the workflow will take you to the point where you have reached the limit of geometry you can use and the expression they provide and you have to transition into texturing which can be provided by drawing skills or a high poly version of your model mapped on the low poly one
what im trying to say is that for any realistic purpose you would want to do this you should already have a semi optimized lowpoly version to go to
