The Black Knight Greataxe is a greataxe in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Greataxe of the black knights who wander Lordran. Used to face chaos demons.
The large motion that puts the weight of the body into the attack reflects the great size of their adversaries long ago.

AvailabilityEdit

The Black Knight Greataxe is dropped by the Black Knights that wield it. The Black Knight in The Catacombs and a respawning one in the Kiln of the First Flame have the axe.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Black Knight Greataxe has very high base damage and good strength scaling, although like most unique weapons, it cannot be enchanted. Its heavy swings are very good for breaking poise and stunlocking. It does, unfortunately, telegraph its moves slowly and obviously, making it easily parried in PvP. It also does 20% more damage when used against demons.
