You're kind of close :/
You said sword. Swords are sharp. I'm sure Gummy would understand what I'm getting at...
Stocatto is a musical term. It means you hit a note without holding it for its full value. Basically, it is a very quick note. And light. Sort of like, I dunno... Comparing a gun shot to an explosion? I have a hard time explaining it to non-musical people.
The note gets played very short and detached.
