Blacksteel Katana is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Blacksteel katana wielded by Alonne Knights. One of the sturdiest types of katana, preferred by masters of the quick-draw.

In the heyday of his land, the Old Iron King fancied entertaining dubious and eccentric guests from faraway lands. Most of them were charlatans, but amongst the riff-raff were true masters of authentic and refined arts.

In the heyday of his land, the Old Iron King fancied entertaining dubious and eccentric guests from faraway lands. Most of them were charlatans, but among the riff-raff was an unusual knight from the far east. He trained the Iron King's men in the sword, in obeisance to his new lord.

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with regular Titanite to +10.
  • Moveset is identical to Iaito from Dark Souls, which the strong attack is quickdraw slash.
  • You can speed up the strong attack quickdraw by wielding it with both hand, roll, light attack and then strong attack. (2H -> Roll -> 2HR1 -> 2HR2)
  • And therefore, you can go for this combo: Roll -> 2HR1 -> 2HR2 -> 2HR2 (slash, quickdraw with delay canceled, thrust)
  • Blacksteel Katana keeps S DEX scaling with most infusions; however this is only visual; the actual scaling is closer to B (~50% of S scaling).

Trivia:

  • As a promotion for the Crown of the Old Iron King DLC, a special white-hilted Blacksteel Katana was put inside the Majula mansion chest. This promotion has long since expired, and unless by trading, this version of the weapon is no longer accessible through conventional means.
  • The weapon is modeled after the chokutō, an early Japanese sword that predates the katana. The chokutō has a single-edged straight blade and sometimes lacks fittings such as the tsuba (the handguard).

      I would not use this unless you are rocking pure DEX of at least 50. Otherwise it just feels weak. Sad cuz the Iaito was one of my favorite weapons in DSI. I think this one might have less reach than it did, too.

        I've always hated using Katanas on the souls series. I never thought they were that fun.
        But, hey, powerstancing is fun. And powerstancing blacksteel katanas with RoB+2, Flynn's ring, etc, and doing easily 1000+ damage on a powerstance attack? It was really funny.

          I was very surprised when i first saw that scaling. How the hell do you even keep an S scaling with almost all the infusions?

          • Anonymous

            So I see it's got really insane counter damage, but the base AR seems to be pretty weak and it's quite short for a katana. Am I missing something here or is this a bad weapon?

              "Blacksteel", also known as "kurogane", was a form of black iron that was used for swords and armor, and was considered very strong due to its high carbon content. *the more you know theme*

                Historically, Iaido is the genre of quickdraw techniques in quick respond to sudden attacks, considered to be a major Japanese martial art for *it's philosophical and spiritual aspects*.
                Is that what the trivia is trying to say?
