Since you have to get in pretty close to use this weapon, I recommend using Stasis to hold your victims in place while you grind up their limbs by running the blade back and forth across them. (Controlling the blade takes a bit of getting used to, as it shoots out about five feet in front of you and then just spins there.) As an added bonus, if you can manage to herd a group of enemies into close quarters, it's entirely likely that you'll kill more than one of them with a single blade by working it back and forth across the group. (Why doesn't every game have a gun like this?)

Note that because the blade does damage by the second, I avoided the secondary fire at all costs, since shooting it is the equivalent of only one second's worth of damage (as opposed to the several seconds you get with the primary fire).
