I've thought of a weapon that looks like the upper side of the K.O.-Dragon Sword or the Bone Katana Wolf.
The spikes have no blade but are sharpened, too.
With ripping it's easier to break monster's wings and horns but it's harder to cut off the tail. The swords are more powerful than LS but have less element. After a 3-combo you can hit the sword into the monster and pull it back to inflict damage. This causes much damage. It has similar movements like the long sword but is a little bit slower and heavier. It is faster and lighter than GS.
Attack Combos: 3x Triangle = attack from right to left then from left to right and then bottom-up (with small rip damage)
1x Square = attack from above and hit into the flesh (I know there can be problems with the shape of the monsters) 2nd Spare = cancel the attack (if attack fails or the monster evades = stuck in the ground) R-button = rip attack
I've thougt of a morph-LS too what combines cut and rip damage but that's overpowered
pls post some thoughts and improvements of this idea Democide 03:53, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Kind a "meh" moment for me...the idea's not terrible,but I'm just not sure how well it would work...CrellinEtreyu 18:30, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it's not bad, I just don't see what this really contributes to MH's gameplay. Cobalt32 20:47, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
