  • A fair weapon for low rank. It's only works well against unarmored monsters like Giadrome because of its sharpness.
  • Like the rest of the Hermitaur equipment it does have a defense boost. Even with 2 slots these factors still don't weigh off against the terrible sharpness.
  • Recommended to upgrade fast.
  • From a beginner's point of view Ceanataur Blade would be a better choice than Red Stripe. In spite of lower defense and no slots its sharpness is absolutely needed to take down most monsters. This is also considering the difficulty of obtaining materials to upgrade Red Pincer into Great Pincer.
