Description

A short katana wielded by the swordsman and distinguished guest of High Lord Wolnir. This shiny black blade is thick, but shorter than the typical katana.

The swordsman was a master of a rare technique, traces of which can be observed in this weapon's strong attack.

Skill: Hold
Assume a holding stance to rapidly execute a lunging slash with normal attack, or a deflecting parry with strong attack.


Location

Dropped from a Mimic in the Catacombs of Carthus.
