For the Dark Souls variant, see Barbed Straight Sword.

The Barbed Straight Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Sword of Longfinger Kirk, the infamous Knight of Thorns. This sword's blade is lined with countless deadly thorns.
The thorns of this ominous weapon induce heavy bleeding.
Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in the Cathedral of the Deep. Guaranteed drop from Longfinger Kirk, who invades as a dark spirit upon reaching the main open area located between the two Giant Slaves.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Barbed Straight Sword shares the same moveset as the Long Sword, except each successful attack also causes bleed build-up, which upon infliction, will take off a sizable portion of an enemy's HP.

It is able to be buffed with both resins and spells.

As a note, the strong attack whilst in Stance will cause notably more bleed build-up if the attack connects with the target.
