Cool Specific types of weapons YOU would like to see

So we already know the basic archetypes of weapons in Grim Dawn. You have ranged weapons, specifically pistols, rifles and crossbows. You have melee weapons, the three archetypes being swords, axes and clubs.
Now I want to ask: what specific types of weapons would YOU like to see?
For example, we know a confirmed melee weapon archetype is the axe. So specifically what I'd like to see is a buzzsaw (this has also been confirmed, iirc, see the image below)

The reason why I started this thread is to see the amount and variety of weapons we could come up with, some the devs may not even know of. Begin!
Cheers,
Younghappy

Hand scythes would be cool. Just because it is a scythe that works with dual wielding my favourite beat down play style.

Tekken would be cool too, but I really doubt they will get in. They are highly specialized weapons for use with the style tekkenjutsu.

@Grilled: medierra has said GD won't be going steampunk, but still, I would love to see a scythe make it in as a savage two-handed weapon (they were unlocked on the Kickstarter stretch goals, after all ) or maybe a hand scythe (like this one )
Btw, med also mentioned that he too, would like to see a whip, but if it is ever going to get in, it would happen in an expansion along with some other requested weapons (like the "pistol sword"), AND it would be it's own weapon class, not just a unique weapon! See here for his quote

@Konda: Totally agree with you there, mate! Dual-wielding wicked hand scythes while dropping mines as you go (as the demolition mastery) or backed up by a healing raven or flaming hell hound (as an occultist)... the possibilities are endless!
Btw, I couldn't find any images of a tekken, could you post a link or something, please?

I would love to see glove type weapons. I'm not sure how many of you saw Avatar: The Legend of Korra tv series, but the "evil" Separatists had a power glove type of weapon. Basically, it was a glove that had an electronic pulse device put into it. Was pretty interesting.

Scythes. Kama. Especially with a chain.
