a weapon that looks crafted and infused with some tech.

 

DE should definitely take note of this.

Skana Skin.

But Skana is a starter weapon. We deserve some stronger katana.

Skana Skin.

The Skana chops, a katana would slice (needing a custom move set).

 

I would like to see a proper katana make its way into the game, as well as those new melee combos that were promised...

Correct! the sheath requires a draw animation, and i hoped it could be used for blocking too. thank you

I like the art you've done a lot.  I'm not sure how the sheath mechanism could work in the existing system, but I'd like to see it implemented.

If they add something like that in, it has to be able to compete with the Dakra Prime and the Machete Wraith. A sheath would be nice, but not necessary. What'd be really cool, is for it to have its own animation set, maybe focused more on wide-cleaving horizontal slices, since that is one of the main things holding longswords back: the animations. And have it hang off the Warframe's hip, instead of on the back, and you get +a billion to style points.

 

Space KatANA. It's all clear to me now.

 

That's just wonderful. Thank you for opening my eyes to that.

One possibility is to have a draw slash as the first melee attack in the combo, it could also be added into the charge attack (sheath it and prepare for the killing blow, so to speak) and/or simply have a (somewhat) flashy flourish when putting the sword away.

 

Or, if you want to get into the cliche, katana-wielding characters of various games and shows, parts of the combo could cause you to sheath the sword before making another attack. Because it makes sense, yes?

The Katana is a terrible sword. The only reason you and those like you are interested in it is because it's been romanticized by Anime and movies.
