The Blacksmith Hammer is a hammer in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Metal hammer passed down amongst blacksmiths of the shrine. Serves as a strike weapon, but also excels at reducing poise and breaking the guard of a shield.
Of course, a hammer's true potential is realized in the hands of a blacksmith.
Skill: Perseverance
Assume an unfaltering stance of prayer to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.

Availability[]

Found in the Untended Graves, lying on Andre's anvil at the spot where he normally can be found in Firelink Shrine.

Characteristics[]

In comparison to other hammers, the Blacksmith Hammer is virtually identical to the Mace, although there are a few differences.

At base damage, the Blacksmith's Hammer deals 10% less than the Mace, and also has slightly higher Strength and Dexterity requirements. However, as its item description states, it inflicts 10% more stamina damage with each strike, making it unusually adept at breaking the guard of raised shields.
