huh switch axe variant!

i doubt i'll use it though as sword and shield dont mix well with me but on occasional barrioth hunts
dont get me wrong, SaS can be useful but its just not one of the better weapons in the game.
But a pogo stick with a life sapping bug on - now thats useful :D

"New weapon that can switch between a sword and an axe"

I clicked the link to this story praying that it wasn't just going to be the switch axe, considering what 'new' information onm has had before... :P This looks cool though.
My splicing gallery is [url=http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=504]here[/url], but I'm taking a break at the moment.
