I like the idea of Gunblade Kennen when vsing an easy melee match up. You get more damage out of it at the cost of some CDR/health, but I think in some places its worth it. Thoughts?
Thank you Jovy for this bomb *** sig!

Yeah i tried it a few times on kennen top. I think its good for sure against tanks like poppy. But you will need some attackspeed for it to be effecient imo. I have tried getting early Berserker greaves, with nice succes. I would properly use an ad/as runepage and not an AP for this build tho. And i would be maxing W first. atleast with 5 points in W at lvl 10.
Last time i bought Gunblade I just went Long sword + Refill pot at lvl 1. Then another longsword+boots+vampiric scepter if you have the money. also getting a ruby crystal sometime in the early game is a must since u dont have dorans.

Using that ruby crystal either for a later rylais, or you could go for a frozen mallet for the extra cheese :)

I was thinking about getting Jaurims fist + Seekers armgaurd after Gunblade + AS boots just to stack up.

Also getting an early Cull can be really nice if your not behind.

But the scenarios where im building Gunblade would be games where I focus and lanephase and split pushing early game for sure. :)

I thought the reason kennens build protobelt was for its active - so that he can more easily gapclose and land savage ults.

That said, I guess if there's no real need for protobelt (e.g. strong initiate team comp like Cease and Desist, Depth Charge, or Hextech Ultimatum) then gunblade would be much more desirable
