Raven - main PC's weapon by ThoRCX Raven - main PC's weapon by ThoRCX
The weapon used by the main character Ryse. He has one on each hand and can combine them to make one long weapon. It has a lethal attack and a electric attack.
I changed the design a bit.
I tried to make it low-poly because it will be duplicated many times in the game (exploration mode, combat mode both for left and right hand, and combinated mode).

Old design and Ryse's concept art :

PS : The game project is finally called "Iron Veins".

I like this design a lot. The main points I like are the layered blades, the simple transformation, and the elegant design. You didn't get too fancy, which I prefer. It is a common mistake to over complicate things, that the designer does very little original design, giving a character a blade that could never be practically wielded in the first place (Cloud Strife, I'm looking at you).
What is unique about this particular blade is that I can see how it could be used in the real world. In fact, I even made a Cad blueprint of this blade to see how it would hold up in a real world enviroment.
I have only two suggestions after creating the model, and analyzing it. The first is regarding the hinge near the blade. if this is going to be a close combat weapon capable of both slashing and stabbing, I would design a larger or stronger hinge to hold up against the force required for this to be an effective weapon. The hinge itself is the weapons main weak point.
The second modification I would make would be the balance. If this is to be used as a single handed (or as a dual wielded weapon), I would put more weight on the "hilt" of the weapon. this would not only give you better balance in a single handed combat, but it would also allow you to have a more sturdy "quarter staff" adaptation when the two blades were connected.
Anyway, I hope this helps. Good luck designing, and I look foward to see what becomes of the "Iron Veins" project!

I myself find it difficult to turn a scythe into something other than an ax or guitar

Amazing concept but reminds me of Dante's Inferno! The reapers Scythe can fold both ways! ^_^
