The Black Knight Sword is a greatsword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Greatsword 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

Semi-common drop from Black Knights wielding the Black Knight Sword. One (non respawning) is encountered midway through the Undead Burg; two more are found in the Undead Asylum if revisited; two sword Black Knights respawn in the Kiln of the First Flame.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Black Knight Sword deals a medium amount of physical damage. Its fairly good reach is offset by its cumbersome moveset. Like all Black Knight weapons, it deals bonus damage to demons.

Since the Black Knight Sword can be obtained so early in the game (if players are lucky and get the drop), it can be useful in early stages where its damage output is very high compared to other weapons found at that stage. However, due to its average scaling, poor moveset, high weight and slow swing speed, it is best to replace this with something else as the game progresses.
